2021 Annual General Meeting and Conference

Leadership in the Fencing Industry

Wednesday 4 – Saturday 7 August 2021

Copthorne Hotel Resort, Bay of Islands

The way we define leadership is changing. Findings from the O.C. Tanner Institute’s 2020 Global Culture Report proclaims that ‘traditional leadership is dead. Today’s leaders must learn to mentor, inspire and connect people to things that matter.’

The fencing industry is traditional in its nature – fence construction and the materials used to build fences are basically the same now as they were 50 years ago. How then, does a fencing business owner in 2021 balance the traditional trade of building fences with a constantly changing commercial, regulatory and technological environment, in order to ensure his or her business’s longevity?

The answer? Good leadership.

The 2021 Conference and AGM ‘Leadership in the Fencing Industry’ will investigate how fencing contractors can become better leaders; reaping the reward of an engaged and motivated team and being able to confidently step away from the fence line to focus on building a stronger business. Prepare to come away from Conference 2021 with changed mindsets, new approaches and ready-to-use business/personal skills and tools.
