Connecting business leaders in Christchurch and Canterbury

Christchurch Business Club

The Christchurch Business Club exists to connect enable and foster business in a collegial and enjoyable environment. The Club’s activities are centered 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.

 

Established in 1931 with a proud history of supporting Christchurch and Canterbury businesses through the decades in good times and bad 

 

 

2020 a year of both opportunities and challenges. The start of a new decade.

The Christchurch Business Club invites existing members and potential new members to be active participants in the Christchurch Business Club’s proactive programme for 2020. As we negotiate the rapidly changing and challenging business landscape from the consequences and impacts of the COVID 19 global pandemic.

Christchurch Business Club is about to enter its 90th year, it has survived through the strength and comradeship of its membership base, over the decades. 

Good business is founded on sound relationships and that is one of the cornerstones of the Christchurch Business Club and these relationships take time to build.
