Argosy CEO inspires new leaders over breakfast

Peter Mence, CEO of Argosy Property Trust shared the challenges and learnings of his career spanning over 30 years in the property industry in front of an audience consisting of AUT students, alumni and staff members at the Breakfast Club event yesterday morning.

During his inspirational speech, Peter emphasized the importance of the team in order to stay ahead of competition and thus, engaging people to work as a high performance team is one of the key challenges, as well as balancing the requirements of the job with personal health and family life.

In order to form high performance teams, empathy and very good listening skills are needed. Peter Mence went on to explain that understanding your strengths and weaknesses, while focusing on the strength of yourself and your team is a prerequisite to success. Diverse team members balancing each others’ weaknesses and social skills when interacting within a team are also important. Determination, a good sense of humor, not taking yourself too seriously, seeing the opportunity within change and how it affects others are additional aspects of a successful career.

The CEO of the Argosy Property Trust concluded by offering the advice to know your limits but believe in yourself, push yourself to gain new experiences and to grow. Peter also emphasised ethical behavior, treating people fairly and to ask yourself about your personal carbon footprint.

The next Breakfast Club event will be held on May 15th 2013 at the AUT University. Andrew Knight, the CEO of New Zealand Oil and Gas will be speaking.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
