Kerridge Strategic Leadership Programme 2020

Event Description

Our vision has always been ‘to transform the leadership landscape of Aotearoa New Zealand’.

We observe first-hand the challenges that organisations and leaders face as they seek to provide stewardship to organisations across all sectors of the economy. It is clear to us that the skills required for senior leaders are evolving fast. What may have been ‘good leadership’ a decade ago is simply not so today.

The challenge for leaders to operate in a more Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous (VUCA) world is very real. The
strategic challenges are far from simple. The stakeholder environment is more demanding. Societal expectations are shifting fast. And of course the workforce are increasingly skilled and discerning of the kind of leader they wish to work for!

For many years our clients have told us that they see a need for a senior leadership programme that is ‘world class’ and delivered locally. We set about creating just that. KSLP is the product of our work. Combining the insights of global thought leaders and the best locally, 2020 will see the launch of our inaugural programme.

We are fortunate to have Cheewei Kwan as partner for our leadership practice. During his career, he has designed and led a myriad of senior leadership programmes with public and private sector organisations across Asia Pacific, including countries as far afield as South Africa and Kazakhstan, to audiences from global multinationals and large domestic organisations. As a keen student of leadership, Cheewei’s personal mission is to bring global thinking and best practices to New Zealand
since his relocation to Aotearoa 9 years ago.

We aim to bring together a cohort of likeminded senior executives to debate, discuss and decide how they can further develop as leaders for New Zealand and the world. Through KSLP, participants will be exposed to insights and perspectives from global and local faculty and business leaders. As part of the programme, participants will work with a coach on their leadership behaviours and develop an action plan for change. KSLP will also provide the ideal platform for participants
to develop deep connections with each other and become part of an illustrious alumni of senior leaders.

We look forward to seeing you at our inaugural programme!
