Westpac Smarts: The Eye of the Storm -Reflections on Leadership from Hurricanes CEO Avan Lee

About this Event

We are monitoring the evolving situation closely, and are going ahead with this event in person. If the situation changes we will notify all attendees of any change in the event date or format.

Just like the business community, the Hurricanes have had to adapt to the COVID-19 impacted world. Maintaining game fitness is just a surface level concern for the Wellington based team. Team culture, connection to the community and mental health and wellbeing all rest on the balance of dynamics within the team.

The Hurricanes Chief Executive Officer, Avan Lee, joins us to share how he sparked courageous conversations and how the core elements of sport can transfer directly to business.

This Westpac Smarts session is the second event the Chamber has hosted with Avan. Attendees can expect to learn how to manage staff dynamics and changes, alongside the recognised and measurable value having a strong team culture can bring a business.
