The Excellence Dividend – Meeting the tech tide with work that wows and jobs that last.

Join us for a unique opportunity to hear from leading business management guru and one of the world greatest business thinkers, Tom Peters.

Tom has preached the gospel of ‘people first’ for over thirty five years and in today’s rapidly changing business environment, this message is even more important than ever. In a world where people often do not feel engaged with their work Tom offers a brilliantly simple roadmap for any business leader and organisation to follow. With his unparalleled expertise and inimitable charisma, we invite you to come, have some fun, and hear how you and your organisation can thrive amid the tech tide and uncertainty.

Tom is a vocal advocate for more widespread female leadership and a passionate advocate of New Zealand with a home in this country. Tom Peters is a Distinguished Adjunct Professor of the University of Auckland Business School.
