Topic: Company Culture in Business
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.
Our 2018 line-up is top-of-class for sheer quality!

As I reflect on the milestones and highlights of my year as CBC President in 2018, I find it difficult to pinpoint any single event or luncheon that stands above other’s as they’ve all been memorable.
The role of President is a significant responsibility and as the year has progressed I’ve realized how important this position is to the smooth running of each meeting, how we recruit, engage and retain members and to the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.
