More Executives Connecting in New Zealand

More Executives Connecting in New Zealand

With more organisations in New Zealand focused on ramping up growth in the coming year as the economy stabilises, many are turning to The Executive Connection (TEC) for the fresh ideas and support which will give their businesses the edge. In response, two energetic and inspirational women are joining the ranks of the TEC team in New Zealand to help drive an expansion in this market.

Dr Claire McGowan joins TEC with a focus on business development. Her background as a CEO in a number of organisations, specialising in entrepreneurial ventures, leadership roles in start-ups and working with training / business judging and her most recent involvement in the Escalator Programme, puts her in a perfect position to assess businesses that would be right for The Executive Connection and advise them on how they could maximise the value of their membership.

Nancy Manning brings years of global corporate experience in the FMCG and Pharmaceutical industries, with more recent experience in Retailing, to the table. Also with a focus on business development, Nancy will work alongside Claire, helping New Zealand CEOs to understand how TEC could benefit them and their businesses.

Dr McGowan and Ms Manning are excited at the opportunities that they have to help build a robust New Zealand business community. “TEC provides its members with the information, resources, and support that business leaders need at the top”, Ms Manning informed. “It is by no means a walk in the park however”, adds Dr McGowan, “Business leaders are held strictly accountable by their fellow group members and TEC Chair to make sure they make the business improvements they said they were going to”.

TEC provides senior and chief executives access to new ideas and fresh thinking through monthly peer mentoring think-tanks, one-to-one business coaching and speaker presentations from top industry experts. Members also have the ability to network with other national and international members and have access to a robust online best practice library.
