This year we have chosen the theme – “Awakened Leadership, in the future of work”.
We live in a world fraught with complexity, volatility and rapid change, and as leaders, it can be a huge challenge to keep up with innovation and technology developments and predict what is required moving into an unknown future. In particular, we are curious about how we prepare ourselves, our people, and our organisations to adapt and respond, or indeed drive the change.

It was 2014, the year of Disruptive Leadership. However, Tom comes across as anything but disruptive. At least in any literal sense of the word. In fact, Tom creates an indelible impression of being far more influenced by the more recent Leadership NZ themes of mindful and integrative leadership. He is humble, reflective, self-effacing and there is an authenticity in the way that he views and discusses leadership and his own journey. Regardless, it is clear that Leadership NZ has left its mark on him.Read More
