WHAT IS WORLD-CLASS ANYWAY?

Taking on the world. Punching above our weight. Winning gold. We all love it when New Zealanders succeed on the world stage.

But unlike in sport where the wins, losses and stats tell the story, world-class business success is not such an easy thing to define. It’s a much more subjective ambition, but just as important for New Zealand business owners and leaders to understand and aim for.

So we thought we’d ask some world-class business leaders a few simple questions. What is world-class business success? What does it take? And is there a uniquely New Zealand way of achieving it?

This is the home of the conversation. A place where we invite you to connect with different points of view, the speakers we are bringing to New Zealand and, we hope, some useful insights and real inspiration.
