Warriors in Business: Making new connections

A wide range of organisations swung in behind Warriors in Business when its first networking event kicked off last month.  

Developed in partnership between the One New Zealand Warriors and MyHR, Warriors in Business exists to connect the local business community around unique corporate experiences and networking opportunities that celebrate success on the field and in business.

That was demonstrated at the first event on March 27 just days before the Warriors’ fourth-round home match against the Newcastle Knights. 

The luncheon event featured a panel comprising One New Zealand Warriors CEO Cameron George, head coach Andrew Webster and MyHR CEO Jason Ennor which focused on the theme of: “How to improve high-performing teams.” 

The discussion broadened out to capture the importance of culture, securing the right people and empowering them to make the right decisions as well as the concept of weighing up stability and continuity versus innovation.

Webster provided insights around team culture and leadership from a football perspective which resonated well with the business audience.

“We were thrilled to be able to engage with the business community on a different level from how we would normally do so on a game day,” said George.

“There are huge potential benefits in this space for all of us. We see this as an integral part of who the One New Zealand Warriors are, what we as a club can bring to the business community and what businesses can provide for us.”

Warriors in Business members who attended the first event were extremely positive about the experience.

Commenting on LinkedIn, Jack McCartney from Salesforce said: “Real privilege to partner with and attend the inaugural Auckland edition of the One NZ Warriors 'Warriors in Business' at Go Media Stadium yesterday afternoon.

“Warriors Head Coach Andrew Webster, CEO Cameron George and MyHR's Jason Ennor provided invaluable 'on the field' & 'off the field' insights to a packed room of Kiwi professionals & business owners, into creating a high-performance culture to improve business performance. 

“Both the panel and Q&A sections were expertly led so looking forward to seeing what is planned for the rest of the season! #UpTheWahs!”

Rob Va’ai from Kingz Container Crew also remarked on the event as an excellent platform for networking and learning.

“The interactive Q&A session at the end was particularly engaging. It allowed for direct participation and the exchange of valuable insights, adding a dynamic touch to the event.”

With three keynote events left for 2024, it’s not too late to add a competitive edge to your organisation with a Warriors in Business membership.

Membership provides “front row seats to the insight, experience and opinions of industry leaders across business and sport to share within your own teams.” 

It also delivers added benefits including One New Zealand Warriors ticketing and merchandise discounts as well as a cashback offer from MyHR for all new customers.

As well as the learning opportunities from being in the room for the keynote events, the network allows you the opportunity to foster ongoing relationships with other like-minded business people that will help to grow your business moving forward.
