  • Sir Peter Blake Leadership Week: $20.00

A special event in Leadership Week for the Sir Peter Blake Trust.

For the celebration of Sir Peter Blake Leadership Week, Mind Warriors are putting on a special event titled "The Self Intelligent Leader". We have gathered four of NZ's leading CEOs to discuss the importance of Self Intelligence in our business leaders of today. Self Intelligence is having a high-level of self-awareness and also the ability to effectively manage oneself. The old saying about you can’t lead others until you can lead yourself is proving to be more true in today’s business environment.

Tickets are $20 and all proceeds go towards to Sir Peter Blake Trust. As this is a fundraising event there is no catering. So, grab a bite to eat beforehand and come and hear four CEOs share their views on such an important leadership topic. Everyone who registers receives a pair of Red Socks!

To pre-register you can pay by bank transfer by e-mailing info@mindwarriors.com for or if you would prefer to pay by credit card click the "ticket" link above (NB: There is a $1.00 Paypal fee). Door sales will also be available (cash only).

Introducing the panel who will discuss the importance of Self Intelligence:

Chris Quin, CEO Gen-i
He is the man widely credited with the success behind Gen-i’s reputation as a leader in the ICT industry in New Zealand. Success which Chris Quin says was founded on the strength of its 3,000 employees. ”An organisation can sustain success only if its leadership creates the culture of the organisation through its conversations. That means an authentic connection, strong communication, gathering feedback and just delivering people the challenge, development and reward that engages them and creates the organisational brand.”

Mark Powell, CEO The Warehouse
He leads a team of nearly 9,00 people at The Warehouse Group’s network of 135 stores and deals with a myriad of eternal suppliers and service provides. Mark Powell’s philosophy on leadership is about facilitating success for others and giving his team members, suppliers and community the freedom to use their talents towards a common purpose. “Retail is about detail. It’s not complicated. Everything starts and finishes with the customer”

Mike Bennetts, CEO Z Energy
Charged with transitioning Shell New Zealand from global outpost to the fresh local upstart Z Energy, Mike Bennetts enlisted the help of 17,000 Kiwis in the biggest piece of industry specific consumer research. His philosophy has always been about the people and focusing on “why we do things around here to capture the identity, meaning, values and beliefs of all of our people individually and, then collectively as a company"

Tim Alpe, CEO JUCY
The man who aims to turn JUCY into an international travel brand, Tim Alpe is well on his way to building one of Australasia’s fastest growing independent tourism companies. Tim believes his love for JUCY is the reason for his success and continued motivation. “I love that we have created something from scratch that now has over 160 staff and is used by over 150,000 people each year. I still get excited each time I see one of our cars or campervans on the road, or when I see people’s eyes light up when they walk into the JUCY Hotel.”
