The Canterbury Club
The Christchurch Business Club exists to connect enable and foster business in a collegial and enjoyable environment. The Club’s activities are centred around CBC CONVERSATIONS, a programme of excellent luncheons and functions where keynote speakers from major New Zealand businesses, national and local government, strategic infrastructure, and community organisations inform and enlighten members on current topics. The venue for many of these events is The Canterbury Club, and an active membership is drawn from a wide cross-section of the Canterbury business community.
Information rich regular addresses are a key reason for the success of the Christchurch Business Club. Every two weeks (holidays aside) club members hear highly informed addresses to a club luncheon, with a forum for questions. Most speakers address the club on ‘open’ basis that assists members to take away useful information to their businesses and often the topic will provide an ‘all-of-city’ update on current issues in the Rebuild of Christchurch. Our speakers are often inaccessible in any other way and CBC provides an immensely important role in the communication of ideas on which business progress is dependent.

The year had many highlights for me. We hosted two of the country’s political leaders, James Shaw of the Green Party and Bill English, the Prime Minister at the time.
Our profile has been lifted this year with many successful events and luncheons. Hosted with BNZ, we heard from Richard Peebles on future developments of the city. Very recently we’ve had a great event celebrating the Melbourne Cup, A great success very well supported by the Canterbury Club.
The Christchurch Business club prides itself on being Christchurch’s Premier Business Networking Organisation. Our organisation prospers because of business entities and the biggest threat facing businesses today, regardless of size, age or sector is cybercrime.
The Christchurch Business Club is fortunate to have members who specialize in cybercrime solutions and can tailor packages that meet the needs of both an individual, or business, regardless of size.
