"The Leadership Academy was outstanding. The speakers provided great insight into many areas of leadership, with varied experiences and practical examples and guidance. We also made really valuable connections with the other participants in the Academy and have remained in contact, supporting each other by sharing ideas and advice".
- Patrick Stowe, Owner, Rimu.

"Last year, I had the pleasure of attending the Chamber of Commerce Leadership Academy. There were sessions led by different leaders in their own sectors and I found each session to be very interesting and informative. It was great to share ideas around improvement within our companies with like-minded individuals. It also gave me a different perspective on how to approach challenging situations in my own role. I would highly recommend the course to anyone looking to further develop themselves in their role, as well as the companies they work for."
- Mike Coman, Business Development Manager, Coman Construction Ltd.
