The NeXt emerging leader
or the NeXt up and coming change maker
or the NeXt cutting edge innovator
or maybe the NeXt frontrunner of community projects.....?
Joining NeXt may be the next step for you!
The NeXt membership offering was launched in 2019 by the North Harbour Club as an exciting prospect for the next generation of leaders from within our community. Steadily growing in numbers since its launch, this membership group provides the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals through a range of events that are held throughout the year. Joining NeXt provides a pathway for our young emerging leaders to widen their networks and at the same time be involved in giving back to our community through the annual AIMES Awards and other North Harbour Club initiatives.
North Harbour Club NeXt members also have the opportunity to be exposed to the immense knowledge, experience and networks held within the current North Harbour Club membership, and North Harbour Business Hall of Fame Laureates and to connect with our AIMES Awards Alumni.
The North Harbour Club is now well in to its third decade. Having been founded in 1995 as a leadership group for the North Shore and wider North Harbour region, the Club has continued to evolve and change over its 25 years of existence. While 2020 hampered a lot of our efforts to come together as a community, we have an extensive calendar planned for 2021 – Charity Lunches, BEN Breakfasts, AIMES Awards Gala Dinner, After 5 Networking Events and of course specific NeXt members gatherings.
Meet some of our Founding NeXt members….
I joined RSM NZ in 2011 as part of the business advisory service team in Albany where I became a partner in 2020. I focus on creating and building relationships domestically and abroad with SME clients across a variety of industries whom are requiring accounting, tax, strategic and governance support.
What event/event series are you most looking forward to in the NHC calendar? I enjoy listening to the many inspirational speakers at the charity lunches, and of course, networking with fellow colleagues.
What are you hoping to get out of your NeXt membership in the next 12 months? Meeting and sharing thoughts with enthusiastic people from within our community. Quality relationships take time to develop and I believe that NeXt provides a fantastic opportunity to do so.
What’s the best thing about living in the North Harbour Region? The community within the North Harbour region are very supportive and generous.
