Could the creation of Shadow Boards
make the shift from listening to young people to improving business success using their perspectives, pragmatism and
This is one of many challenges AUT is inviting business leaders and young people to explore during the AUT Business and
Law Schools’ Shadow a Leader
day on Thursday 4 July 2019.
More than 80 business leaders will share their know-how with the next generation of leadership talent and have the
chance to hear their views on how future success might look.
Now in its eighth year, Shadow a Leader matches a year 13 student and an AUT business or law student with a business
leader. Students are selected based on their leadership capabilities, potential and overall achievement.
Across the business day students will be exposed to the day-to-day workings of leadership in action, including strategy
meetings, negotiations, videoconferences, team building meetings and client sales presentations.
Photographs and quotes will be collected from many of the participating business leaders and students.
Company executives and students who have signed a media waiver and agreed to be interviewed and photographed include:

• Foodstuffs North Island
• Salesforce NZ
