Connecting Leaders is about bringing together People leaders across industries. We strongly believe that leadership isn’t industry specific and that learning from each others’ challenges and wins will see all of us bring the best out of our people.
Background ; Rach & Hannah met while both were Team Leaders for Accounting software company Xero. “Hannah I connected really quickly when we worked for Xero, we both have a shared passion for seeing people develop and as cheesy as this sounds, be the best they can be and find their “why”. Since leaving Xero ( Rach to lead Marketing & Customer Success teams at Booster & Hannah to lead Customer Support at TradeMe ) we have continued to support one another and catch up to chat through ideas, challenges - you name it. It was during one of these catch ups we thought, we should connect other leaders together so they have someone to talk to”.
Who’s it for? Anyone who leads people and is keen to meet other people leaders, as well as participate in group discussions. Particularly those new to leadership roles.
What will the meet ups be like? We’ll have a theme to each session and we aim to bring along inspiring leaders from our past or people you might suggest to hear about how they envision leadership and some of their key learnings over time. Our first session will be focussed around introing everyone who attends and hearing from your hosts Hannah and Rachel about their leadership journeys and generating some discussion around what makes a good leader? What makes a bad leader? Who are the leaders they have learnt from?
Our first meet up will be Wednesday 24 July, 6pm at the Booster office ( Level 19, 1 Willis Street )
