Wanted: Leaders who dare to dream

Six emerging leaders are being sought by the Sir Peter Blake Trust in its annual hunt for worthy recipients of its leadership awards.

The awards are open to all New Zealanders between the ages of 25 and 45, and nominations must be in before March 30. Anybody can tender an entry.

Funded by the Sir Peter Blake Trust, the awards are announced alongside the Blake Medal during the organisation's annual leadership week in June, which celebrates a great New Zealander who has made an outstanding contribution to the country.

Last year’s emerging leaders included the founder of triathlon movement IronMaori, a lawyer exploring international conflict resolution, and a young entrepreneur with a passion for philanthropy.

Give over $5 a month and you will not only be supporting New Zealand innovation, but you’ll also receive a print subscription and a copy of the new book by David Downs and Dr. Michelle Dickinson, No. 8 Recharged (while stocks last).
