Bagrie’s Appointment to Life Education Board

Bagrie’s Appointment to Life Education Board

One of New Zealand’s best known business commentators has joined the Board of one of New Zealand’s leading charities.

Cameron Bagrie, best known for his role as ANZ Chief Economist for the last 11 years, was appointed to the Board of Life Education Trust last week. Life Education’s fleet of mobile classrooms have been visiting schools for over 30 years, promoting healthy choices for New Zealand children. They are principally recognised by their mascot Harold the Giraffe.

“Life Education is a significant national charity working throughout New Zealand supporting children with the complex issues of growing up in the world today. When they become adults they’ll be living in a different environment than we were 20 years ago and organisations like Life Education need to be thinking about tomorrow’s environment to prepare today’s children,” says Cameron.

After leaving ANZ, Cameron established his own consultancy business, which he describes as a boutique research firm. Cameron believes all businesses and organisations need reliable intelligence and insight, and that shouldn’t be restricted to those who are large enough to employ an economist.

Life Education Trust Chief Executive John O’Connell is really excited to have Cameron on the Board.

“Cameron brings quite a different perspective to future focussed discussion - the social implications and disruptors we need to plan for. As a charity working with children and equipping them for life in the future, he has a lot to contribute,” says John.



Life Education has 46 mobile classrooms visiting schools throughout the country. Last year nearly 250,000 children from more than 1,400 schools took part. The organisation supports school’s teaching of the health curriculum covering a range of needs in schools including resilience, bullying, cyber safety, through to alcohol and other substances with older children.

“I’m really excited about joining the Board. Life Education have made a huge contribution touching the lives of many children, including my own. I look forward to contributing to their success and examining more ways we can improve outcomes for children across areas such as health, social well-being and financial literacy,” says Cameron.
