Keynote Speakers



The Engine is a collaborative community of carefully selected business professionals from experienced advisors, to a network of specialist service providers.At the heart of The Engine are community and education – because lets’ face it – running a business is a lonely business. And knowledge is power.

So we’ve created a space for business owners to gather to support and learn from us and each other.

The Forums are our way of bringing businesses together to network and learn in one day (quarterly) – a day where they feel supported and take that valuable knowledge away to implement in their business and personal lives.

The combination of skilled Business Advisors, trusted service providers and a strong business community to cheer you on is invaluable and a key to business success.

The Engine are a powerhouse in story telling the information which is widely marketed and remarketed.

Our Forums are only one part of what we do to educate businesses. We have a TV show, 10,000+ nationwide business database, a collaborative community where we share valuable resources, LMS training and also we get our providers and clients on our PODCAST.

“Working well – Why creating a culture of wellness is great for your bottom line!”

Why Attend?

Wellness at work: Building Healthy Workplaces

In recent years, wellness has moved into the workplace – the workplace being both for profit and not-for-profit companies, businesses, firms, institutions and organisations designed to provide goods and/or services. While workplaces have the responsibility to provide safe and hazard-free work environments, they also have the opportunity to promote worker health and foster healthy workplaces.  The average person spends more time working than any other daily activity of life, and, over a lifetime, an average of 100,000+ hours on the job.  The focus on the workplace as being an important part of one’s life and a major role player in the community, for health protection and health promotion has become a big focus.

The concept of the healthy workplace is not new, but it has indeed changed in New Zealand, evolving from a nearly exclusive focus on operational health and safety to include wellness.  Today’s healthy workplace should include both health protection and promotion.  In short, it includes wellness.

As a Company Owner or leader in your workplace responsible for Wellness this forum is designed with you in mind to take learning/s and implement them back in to your workplace.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has captured these elements in its definition of the healthy workplace.

A healthy workplace is one in which workers and managers collaborate to use a continual improvement process to protect and promote the health, safety and well-being of all workers and the sustainability of the workplace by considering the following, based on identified needs:

– Health and safety concerns in the physical work environment;

– Health, safety and well-being concerns in the psycho-social work environment, including organisation of work and workplace culture;

– Personal health resources in the workplace; and

– Ways of participating in the community to improve the health of workers, their families and other members of the community.”

Today we bring to you leaders in their fields to share with you their knowledge of life experience, best practices and to have you walk away thinking more how to implement wellness of your best asset ‘your people’ and ‘you’.

Today’s business leaders must govern their organisations with wellness always at the forefront to drive their business forward.

Who Attends?

Not being a coffee drinker, I always hear there’s a massive difference between an amazing cup of coffee and a terrible one. I also know many business owners rely on this necessary drink to get them through the day with many never leaving the inside of their business operations which means you are on the same daily merry-go-round knowing no different. If this sounds like you then this Quarterly Forum is designed with you in mind. Discover that the chokehold on the growth and wellness of your business is directly related to the psychology of those leading the company. By this we mean that if you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you have always got. To be different means stepping outside of your business to learn from others who are experienced to open your mind through sharing of their experiences and to challenge your thinking to the opportunity of change.

The Engine have brought together a starring line up of top leaders in a variety of fields, to deliver strategies, learnings and opportunity for your business wellness. Sponsored by Allely Estate and Wine Time, they believe in being responsible corporate leaders that provide information and education to enable business owners to be better equipped inside the walls of their business., a not for profit organisation led by Andrew Barnes and Charlotte Lockhart are challenging people on the concept of a 4dayweek and the huge benefit on your business, community and most of all your people. The ladies at Organised Chaos – Christine Rankin, Julia Grace and Monica Moore will bring life lessons and accountability with humour. Tony Alexander will provide the injection reality of where the economy sits from his very experienced mind.
