Celebrate Leadership

Since 2007, the Sir Peter Blake Trust Leadership Week has been a time where New Zealand celebrates great leadership.

Thank you to everyone who supported the Leadership Week in 2017. Schools, businesses, organisations and community groups are encouraged to celebrate great leadership by creating a unique event such as inspiring awards, guest speakers, red socks day, or a business breakfast. They use the theme #believeyoucan to inspire them to continue Sir Peter's legacy - in Sir Peter Blake’s final log aboard Seamaster he said, “to win, you have to believe you can do it.” We want to encourage all Kiwis to back themselves to achieve your dreams, don’t let failures stand in the way of achieving success, and instead, learn from mistakes and use them to adapt and strengthen your plan towards achieving your goals, just as Sir Peter Blake did.
