Shaping the future of
New Zealand

The Strategic Insights Panel was launched in September 2016 to draw together select members of New Zealand’s business community to actively contribute to shaping the future of New Zealand through innovation.

We are a group of business, education and technology leaders focused on creating an environment for Kiwi businesses to prosper so that all Kiwis can realise their potential. 

The world is changing. And faster than ever before. This is reshaping the way New Zealanders learn, work and live.

This presents an opportunity for us to reclaim our status as a unified, innovative, socially and environmentally progressive country that punches above its weight.

As a country of 4.6 million people, we all have a role to play. As the Strategic Insights Panel and as members of the private sector, we believe that we can do more as a business community to ignite change so that all Kiwis and Kiwi businesses can realise their potential.


We are committed to New Zealand. Our goal is to create the best possible opportunities for the social and economic prosperity of New Zealand and as such, enable all Kiwi’s and Kiwi businesses to realise their potential.

To deliver on our vision, our key focus is on enabling business to increase New Zealand's productivity. Increasing productivity will lift the standard of living for every new generation of New Zealander and as such, create a better future for all New Zealanders. 

Key Projects

As a group, we select projects that we believe will help us to achieve our overarching goal of social and economic prosperity for Kiwis and Kiwi businesses. 

We are currently focusing on three projects that we believe will help us achieve this goal. For more information on these, see here.
