Young New Zealander of the Year To Share 3 Key Learnings
Young New Zealander of the Year 2012, Sam Johnson, to share Three Key learnings with our next generation.
Inspirational in mind and in person, Sam Johnson will be in town February 13, sharing his Christchurch Student Volunteer Army stories with Palmerston North’s next generation of leaders at a Three Keys event.
Sam was the visionary and face of Christchurch’s 9000 strong Student Volunteer Army. Coordinating students wanting to help those in need, the Army quickly became a highly regarded force by national emergency response units, and those affected in the September 2010 and February 2011 earthquakes. Not only that, the Army helped change the perception of students from ‘couch-burners’ to ‘young people who contribute valuable and compassionate services to the community’. His vision gained both domestic and global media attention. And Sam himself was awarded Young New Zealander of the Year and Communicator of the Year in 2012. As a young guy who believes “it’s really important that young people get involved in our communities”, Sam says he “is excited about the future of New Zealand”.
Three Keys brings
networking opportunities to the region, with presentations
by successful and inspiring New Zealanders. Sam is the
second speaker in a series of six. Hap Cameron kicked off
the event, sharing his travelling of seven continents and
holding 32 jobs before reaching the age of 30 stories, to an
inspired audience in November. April 4 Three Keys brings
former All White Noah Hickey, and another three
inspirational speakers are about to be announced.
Membership is now open online via www.threekeys.co.nz. $170 for the remaining five events is great value to hear from, and meet, such clever Kiwi folk. Group discounts are also available.
