Developing the Next Generation of Chief Executives for New Zealand - Research launch 21 November

Event Description

The role of the Chief Executive is unique and with the growing levels of transparency, no longer are Chief Executives’ words and deeds more visible to an increasing circle of stake­holders, they are also subject to greater scrutiny.

A good proportion of our work involves advising boards on and around the appointment of their Chief Executives. While the majority will be externally appointed, some of these will be drawn from their own internal pool of talent. We are commonly asked by boards to offer thoughts on “what good looks like” when it comes to appointing a new Chief Executive. At the same time, we are also asked by many senior leaders, “what can I do to be a future Chief Executive?”

Earlier this year we led a research initiative to understand what it takes to develop the next generation of Chief Executives for Aotearoa New Zealand.   It is our hope that this research will offer a useful and uniquely Kiwi view of our leadership landscape.

Please join us on Thursday 21 November, where we will cover a presentation of the findings followed by a panel discussion with the following Senior Leaders: 

  • Denis Snelgar – Professional Director

  • Neil Cowie – former CE at Mitre10, now CE of Solarcity

  • Jodie King – Chief People Officer at Air NZ
