CEO Forums

Through our recent business owners survey, we have received requests for a special interest group to be formed, to meet the specific needs of CEO’s and Managing Director’s.

In order to get the most out of these forums, we ask that all attendees meet these minimum requirements: 

- Own or manage a $10 million plus business

- Manage or employ a minimum of 30 plus employees 

We intend to host these events three to four times per year, and will bring together business leaders to discuss topics pertinent to this criteria.

CEO Forum – 15 November 2017


Business North Harbour is delighted to invite you to our second CEO Forum, 15 November 2017, 12 midday – 1pm.  

Over a boardroom lunch, we will have a 15-20 minute presentation from Campbell Mitchell regarding From Risk to Reward – a study that Suncorp has conducted to explore New Zealand businesses’ attitudes to risk, what’s holding them back or helping them succeed, and how they feel about growth.

He’ll share some insights from the research and what we can learn about taking business risks, and discuss how Auckland’s attitudes to risk differ from the rest of New Zealand.  Following on from Campbell’s presentation will be the chance for those present to share their experiences of managing risk within their business, and what drives the reward element of their business.  This will be conducted under Chatham House Rules. ‚Äč
