Welcome to the CQ November 2017 Newsletter

We are loving the innovation that the members and facilitators are bringing into meetings, and we encourage everyone to try new formats and ideas with your team.

In the last month teams have been white water rafting during their meeting, some thought fishing in the evening would be a productive thing to do, one team brought in outside members to bolster the discussion, and one regional team has chosen to move to a strategic level, while others have changed the start and finish times to add more flexibility. All with great results, so please keep stretching and challenging the model.

Plus there have been some big topics put up on host days. Topics that have a national impact. I was fortunate enough to be invited to Auckland recently to join the CQ team Blackadders who were being hosted by Brook Weatherwell. The focus of the day was on the Pocket Project, a movement I had never heard of before, that has huge aspirations to heal the wounds of past traumas. I won’t go into detail here as I am about to have a follow up session in December with a wider group, but my gut feeling is this project will have hugely positive ramifications for New Zealand. I will keep you all posted going forward.

So here’s my big innovation for November - I would love you to email me a song that best sums up your experience of CQ for 2017, and why. These are going to be published in the December newsletter.

And to kick off, Dr Kate White has begun the list with ‘Jump’ by the Pointer Sisters, because her team has encouraged her to focus on her work-life balance, and she been out competing in show hunter on her horse as a result.

BCC’s Innovate 2017

Dave Craig did a great job once again with the Innovate competition for the lower North Island. There were 6 finalists from a huge number of entries, and as a sponsor, CQ offered a scholarship to one of the finalists. Dave was the selector which was very cool, and the chosen person was Stephanie Buckeridge, who is a budding entrepreneur with a business called The Scrub Collab that is being brought to life in a garage at this very moment. Well done Stephanie, and welcome to CQ!

An interesting talk by the Head of Daimler Benz, Dieter Zetsche.

A bit mind blowing to say the least! He predicts an interesting concept of what could lay ahead. Read more here.


Our intern experience just gets better every year

Last year was the first time we had worked with an intern from Massey University. It was a bit of a challenge initially as we needed to incorporate Kayla into the office one day a week, and adjust to her inexperience. Once we adjusted to that, it was a blast. New skills, fresh eyes and lots of extra work completed.

Now in our second year of having an intern, Charlie has just finished his year with us and has been working on getting CQ across the line to become a registered B Corp company. Great effort, and we wish him well in his endeavours.

At our CQ Christmas party he read out this to the team.

Directed by Taika Waititi

Thor Ragnarok 2017

This Hollywood blockbuster, reccomened by Mary Beth, was brought to life by NZ's own Taika Waititi (Hunt for the Wilderpeople, 2016) which has been praised by global moviegoers and critics alike.
The 16th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 
has been given its own kiwi flare with Waititi's form of close-magic deadpan and perpetual irony.
