Knowledge Wave 2003 – The Leadership Forum Talking Points

- Knowledge Wave 2003 – The Leadership Forum, will be held in Auckland from February 19-21.
- The Knowledge Wave Trust initiative will be attended by 450 delegates – 350 of whom are established leaders in all sectors including business, the arts and entertainment, sports, academia, politics and community organisations – and 100 of whom are Emerging Leaders. Of these 50 have been chosen by the Trust and 50 identified through a national media search.
- The key themes for the Forum are growth, community and knowledge.
- The issues New Zealand faces around how to generate high and sustainable levels of growth, healthy and stable communities and the ability to access and develop new knowledge are closely interdependent.
- Improving our economic and social prosperity will require cross-sectoral leadership and collaboration. Hence a further key theme for the forum is leadership and the role that leaders at all levels of a society play in creating successful communities.
- Strong leadership networks form an important component of national economic growth internationally.
- To move ahead we need more leaders with a strong sense of civic duty and a passion for New Zealand. Through the Forum the Trust is bringing people of diverse capabilities and experiences together to equip our decision makers of today and tomorrow with the necessary skills, knowledge and networks to debate issues and effect positive change.
- The involvement of Emerging Leaders – New Zealanders in the 17-35 age group chosen for their current and potential contributions – ensures New Zealand’s next generation of leaders has the opportunity to become part of the leadership networks that will support their development and strengthen their ability to make a contribution to society.
- The delegates represent all regions of New Zealand from the far North to the deep South and a very broad age range from under 20s to over 60s.
- The Forum is the first occasion in which such a diverse group of New Zealand’s established and emerging leaders will gather. Invited delegates include New Zealanders living both in this country and offshore. They represent all parts of society – from music and the arts, to indigenous peoples, recent migrants, academia, business, community groups, and central and local government
- Knowledge Wave 2003 – The Leadership Forum will bring together some of the world’s leading international thinkers and commentators on the Forum themes of knowledge, growth and community.

- Among confirmed international speakers are Mr Bill Emmott, Editor-in-Chief of The Economist, Professor Richard Florida, Professor of Regional Economic Development of Carnegie Mellon University, Juan Enriquez-Cabot, Director, Life Sciences Project, Harvard Business School, Professor Robert D Putnam, Professor of Public Policy at Harvard University, Vinton G Cerf, Senior Vice President Architecture and Technology at Worldcom and co-developer of the TCP/IP communications protocol that gave rise to the Internet 20 years ago and Dr Rita Colwell, Director of the United States’ National Science Foundation with its US$4.8 billion education and research budget.
- Mr Emmott is an economics authority whose latest book 20:21 Vision looks at global issues of the last century, the lessons they hold for the next, and asks will Capitalism continue to be a dominant force in our world?
- Professor Florida, author of works including The Rise of the Creative Class, has chronicled the growing economic influence of creative people and has developed an index which measures a city or region’s ability to attract the creative classes.
- Mr Enriquez-Cabot is an authority on the impact of the genetic, digital and knowledge revolutions and author of As the Future Catches You.
- Professor Putnam is a respected commentator on civic engagement and what holds communities together, with his work Bowling Alone regarded as a major commentary on the breakdown of American civil society.
- Vinton Cerf, one of the “fathers” of the Internet as co-developer of the TCP/IP protocol, is currently helping NASA build an interplanetary version of the Internet. He is also involved in the Internet’s next generation – conversion to a new Internet Protocol, IPv6 sometime in 2006. He is an acknowledged authority on what the Internet holds for us in the future.
- Dr Rita Colwell directs the United States’ National Science Foundation with its US$4.8 billion budget. Under her leadership the Foundation has placed strong emphasis on science and mathematics education, graduate science and engineering education/training and the increased participation of women and minorities in science and engineering.
- Mr Bjorn Stigson is President of the World Business Council For Sustainable Development which has become the pre-eminent business voice on sustainable development issues. Its members include over 120 of the largest multi-national corporations in the world. Stigson says, “Economies that make the most of their labour and natural resources and improve their environmental performance will be better poised to improve their competitiveness.”
- New Zealand speakers include the Prime Minister, Helen Clark, former WTO Director-General Mike Moore, Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide CEO, Kevin Roberts and Simon Upton, Chair of the OECD Round Table on Sustainable Development.
- The speakers will engage with the 450 delegates to bring their knowledge, experience and a fresh set of perspectives to bear on questions of national importance and opportunities for our nation.
- The Forum is seeking to build on the success of the Catching the Knowledge Wave Conference in August 2001 which generated a new willingness amongst private and corporate citizens to take responsibility for initiatives that will restore New Zealand’s economic performance to the top half of the OECD’s tables. Such collective action will be vital to New Zealand achieving a prosperous, cohesive society.
