Before I left the UK, I started work on an exciting new project based in the Hauraki Gulf of New Zealand.
Working with Rosie Walford, a long-time friend and colleague, we developed a strategic leadership project in response to the challenges identified in the 'State of the Gulf' reports. The project combines skilfully facilitated experiences of the incredible Gulf environment, with on-going coaching and peer-group support.
The project will start in August 2019, when participants will meet for the first time for an orientation day with legendary All Blacks coach, Sir Graham Henry, amongst other high-profile leaders.
In October they will come together again for a four-day residential at the stunning Mana retreat centre on the Coromandel peninsula.
From there, coaching and peer-group work take the experience into action to reverse the devastating environmental impacts of rapid population growth in the Auckland region.
The project is funded by Project North and we are gratefully supported through a partnership with the Hauraki Gulf Conservation Trust. The projects Patron is Sir Graham Henry.
More information about the project will be available soon and I will keep you posted here and via social media.
