As an example, these business opportunities may include potential sponsorships (ranging from branded team drink bottles, club naming rights right through to larger long-term agreements), in kind donations, advertising, partnering, product giveaways, sampling or placements.

The sporting bodies of North Shore have in excess of 100,000 members which represents around one third of the entire North Shore population.

Flying without wings - Susie Barns
Women in Business
We are excited to welcome Wing Commander Susie Barns to our Women in Business on the 3rd December to talk about her successful rise within a male dominated environment in the Royal New Zealand Air Force.

From enlisting as an Administration Clerk Certificate Trainee in the RNZAF on 11 January 1993 to her current position as Chief of Staff to RNZAF Base Auckland, Wing Commander Susie Barns has had a highly distinguished career comprising almost 27 years with the Royal New Zealand Air Force.

Susie’s RNZAF career has incorporated multiple domestic and overseas postings to countries including Australia, the Solomon Islands and the United Kingdom, the raising of her two children Bryahna (17) and Trae (14) along with extensive tertiary study that has seen her complete a NZ Diploma in Business Studies, Bachelor of Business Studies, Post Graduate Diploma in Integrated Logistics Management and a Masters of Engineering.

As a highly experienced logistics and supply chain specialist, Susie is particularly passionate about developing others and making a positive impact on organisational culture. In addition to her primary roles, Susie was the Officer in Charge of RNZAF Netball, the NZDF Code Chair and the RNZAF representative on the NZDF Women’s Development Steering Group Committee. In 2016, Susie was the first NZDF participant on the Global Women Breakthrough Leaders Programme.

Outside of work, Susie is a fan of the outdoors and is an avid supporter of her children’s sport which often sees on her on the sidelines of her daughter’s netball court and her son’s touch rugby field.

Evolving Cyber Risk seminar
Member Event Post
Evolving Cyber Risk

You might be surprised to learn cyber security breaches cost the New Zealand economy an estimated $250-$400m each year. Consequences of an attack can be incredibly damaging: loss of reputation, recovery costs or even worse business closure. The sad reality is that around 60% of SME’s are affected by cyber-attacks.

If you are part of the 45% of Kiwi businesses who identify as having little or no data security in place, now is the time to act! Hear from our experienced speakers, who can help you understand the risks with real life examples and case studies, and the best way to protect against them.

Our Speakers: IT Live Limited, Crombie Lockwood & Clendons Barristers & Solicitors.

Business Programmes

Our Business Capability Programmes are designed to meet the diverse needs of our members. Business North Harbour will aim to:

  • Provide a consolidated guide to current training options and providers.
  • Provide workshops and/or seminars based on needs identified by members.
  • Connect members with the appropriate expertise to deliver training specific to their business.

To date we have facilitated successful programmes focused on: Sales and Marketing; People Management; Organisational Development; Financial Management; and Processes and Procedures.

The value of these programmes are transferred to our members’ businesses as a way to add core training, knowledge and competency amongst their teams. 

Business North Harbour is excited to announce that we are continuing our support of the awards as a main sponsor. 

We are encouraging business owners to leverage value for their organisation through the additional profile and practical consultancy available throughout the entry and judging process.

Make the most of the chance to work on your business – and not just in it.  

Effective people management can really give businesses the edge in a competitive market. We know there are many examples of excellence north of the bridge and we want to encourage these businesses to enter.

Special Interest Groups

'One Size Fits All' does not apply to business. Recognising this, Business North Harbour offers specialist workshops and tailored information for a growing number of industry and special interest groups across our business district.  For example, we have offered workshops for those wishing to develop export or import markets, and those with an interest in commercial property investment.

These workshops or mini conferences will be promoted on our Events Calendar.
