    Anna Pierard: Co-Founder & Director at Festival Opera

    Anna Pierard: Co-Founder & Director at Festival Opera

    From opera diva in Europe, to founding ‘Project Prima Volta’ (which introduces 30 local teenagers to performance opera each year), to producing an annual opera in the Bay - this all takes energy, vision and lots of passion. Something that Hawke’s Bay-raised soprano and Collective Intelligence member alumna, Anna Pierard, has in bucketloads!

    Hugh Signal: Managing Director, Alpine Deer NZ

    Hugh Signal: Managing Director, Alpine Deer NZ

    "A self-proclaimed, recovering narcissist” might seem a bit harsh, but that’s how Hugh Signal describes himself. When Hugh started his scholarship journey with us, I remember his life was about making money and not much else. Seldom have I witnessed someone evolve from this point so quickly, to become an empathetic and highly-effective leader. I was delighted to sit down with Hugh and explore where his niche export company, Alpine Deer, is at right now.

    Sian Paterson: Founder, Blue School

    Sian Paterson: Founder, Blue School

    I take great joy in watching from the sidelines as our past Koru Scholars, like Sian Paterson (who was one of our first), go on to grow and evolve themselves, their causes and ideas. Sian cut short an OE to return to Aotearoa with a burning idea and found an outstanding educational space in Greytown - Blue School. What a journey!  You’ll be inspired...

    Dave Blackwell: CEO, Spidertracks

    Dave Blackwell: CEO, Spidertracks

    From a tough, black-shirt-wearing kid growing up in Masterton, to an accomplished CEO of a successful tech company operating on the world stage, the life of Dave Blackwell is a fascinating journey. His courage in sharing a little-known part of his life as an addict in this episode, and his exploration of that is truly admirable. I feel very privileged to have been a part of this conversation.

    Margaret Kouvelis: Founder & CEO, Talent Central

    Margaret Kouvelis: Founder & CEO, Talent Central

    For those who live in the middle million (Manawatū), my great mate Margaret Kouvelis is a well-loved and well-known dash of colour and courage for her many roles across education, retail, the rural sector and local government. I was dying to break my post-lockdown pod drought and this chat with Margaret about her work founding Talent Central (connecting youth with employment opportunities) was real balm for my soul.  Lots of laughs and lots of locals get a mention in this one!

    Tim Myers: CEO, Norwood

    Tim Myers: CEO, Norwood

    I was keen to chat with Tim Myers after I heard how he had responded with an open heart and great leadership to the challenges of the COVID-lockdown. As the CEO of Norwood, a company with some 400+ staff operating throughout Aotearoa, what he has done has been life-changing - for both the business and those who work within it. If, after listening in, you’d like to be involved in Tim’s initiative, you can get in touch with him via www.norwood.co.nz.
