Defining authentic value, for good
Fireside chat

Join us & our panel as we discuss defining authentic value, for good, one of the key topics on our Leading Change for Good Postgrad Certificate.

Wednesday 3rd February, 2021
Free to join via Zoom

Event overview

We launched Leading Change for Good over 4 months ago and one of the most intriguing, and challenging, topics we’ve approached so far is defining authentic value, in the context of “for good”.

The engagement from our learners, and the stories of leadership and experience that came out of our discussions, inspired us to tackle it again, with a wider audience. So we’ve created an entire event around it so we could discuss, debate and learn with people across Aotearoa.

Join us and a panel of interesting collaborators, for another online fireside chat, as we tackle “defining authentic value”.

What is value, how do we make sure the value we are working towards is authentic, but also measurable? And how do our own unique contexts play into the definition of value?

This fireside chat is designed for

  • Those who are keen to make positive change in their community, business, industry, or wider.
  • Those who have an idea for sustainable change they want to lead, big or small, for the benefit of others and/or the the planet – or can see where change is needed.
  • Varied industries from self-employed, SME’s, large corporates, government, not for profit, anyone who wants to lead innovative and sustainable change for good.
  • Anyone who has previously attended and enjoyed our previous fireside chats in this series
