Te Hono National Forum

Expanding connections in New Zealand's food and fibre sector


The forum is a New Zealand-based, one-day event that aims to reconnect alumni as well as reach out beyond this group by encouraging alumni to bring their emerging leaders, clients and stakeholders with them.

A continued forum on driving value to the primary sector


Te Hono secures national and international speakers of the same calibre as those who facilitate our primary sector bootcamp to lead deep discussion centred around themes pertinent to achieving the partnership's mission of transforming the primary sector from a volume to value model, in order to drive the prosperity of New Zealand.


Like bootcamp, each forum is centred around a theme. Past themes include accelerating transformation, executing value-based transformational strategies, from why to how, and governance.


Past speakers have included Stanford faculty Dan Klein and Justin Ferrell, Intel's Genevieve Bell, Zenia Tata of XPRIZE, Daniel Flynn from Thank You, Simon Anholt (author of Good Country), Jason Mayden of Nike, Larry Keeley from Doblin, and Lisa Solomon of Singularity University.
