Inbox: Trust seeks emerging leaders

The Sir Peter Blake Trust once again is searching to recognise individuals who have Dared to Dream as part of the country’s premier leadership awards.
The Sir Peter Blake Emerging Leader Awards, announced as part of the Trust’s annual Leadership Week from 22–29 June, identify six leaders between the ages of 25 and 45 who have inspired and achieved across many walks of life, sometimes in relative obscurity.
Anyone can nominate worthy emerging Kiwi leader, with deadline this year of 30 March.
Chief executive of the Sir Peter Blake Trust Shelley Campbell says the awards aim to encourage New Zealanders to develop the kind of leadership demonstrated by Sir Peter Blake during his legendary yachting and environmental feats.
“True leaders dare to dream. They are willing to stand tall and put stake in the ground, to believe. It’s their vision, their ability to inspire and their belief that makes them stand above the rest.”
Last year’s Emerging Leaders included the founder of triathlon movement IronMaori, talented young lawyer exploring international conflict resolution, and young entrepreneur who believes passionately in philanthropy.
Nominations are encouraged from all sectors of society. Each one is considered seriously in rigorous review process.
The Emerging Leaders are announced alongside the Blake Medal, which celebrates great New Zealander who has made an outstanding contribution to the country.
The Sir Peter Blake Leadership Awards were established in 2005 to inspire and celebrate great leadership. They are open to all New Zealanders.
