The chance to rub shoulders with top New Zealand business leaders is nearly up
New Zealanders have less than two days left to bid for a one-on-one business mentoring lunch with the decision makers at
the top of some of New Zealand’s most-renowned companies.
Entrepreneurs and CEO’s of leading businesses, from Cadbury to Trelise Cooper, Air New Zealand to The Warehouse are
taking part in a unique charity auction for ChildFund New Zealand.
All proceeds from the winning bids will go towards ChildFund’s Livelihoods Appeal in Sri Lanka, which will provide
micro-loans and business mentoring to families living in extreme poverty.
To help generate further funds for the appeal, ChildFund is keen for bidders to share ‘added value’ ideas they’d like to
see as part of the CEO auctions. On top of a mentoring lunch, bidders might also like the idea of an internship, a week
long shadowing experience, having the CEO speak at their next event or running a group leadership session with their
company. ChildFund is encouraging the public to share their thoughts by commenting on the particular CEO’s Auction page.
Geoff Ross from Moa, has secretly already added more value to his auction. His lucky auction winner is now set to
receive not only a one-on-one business lunch, but also an afternoon working alongside him at Moa, a full tasting of the
range and food matching course with the founder and enough Moa to keep the fridge stocked for a week or two.
