Putting the spotlight on Kiwi Leadership

Nominations are now open for the inaugural New Zealand Leadership Awards. Presented by Robert Walters and supported by New Zealand Rugby, the New Zealand Leadership Awards will celebrate and honour outstanding leadership across New Zealand’s diverse business and community sectors.

Shay Peters, Robert Walters CEO of Australia and New Zealand, said, “Leadership is about inspiring others to believe in a shared vision, to push beyond their limits, and to achieve greatness together. True leaders lead by example, instilling trust, fostering teamwork, and navigating challenges with grace and determination.”

The New Zealand Leadership Awards aim to recognise outstanding leaders, both established and emerging, who are influencing the future of business and beyond.

Peters added, “The Leadership Awards provide a great opportunity for PR consultants to encourage their clients to enter, and if successful, there is the potential for some great editorial mileage.”
