Leadership Week - Make It Happen

AUT is proud to be a part of the 2017 Leadership Week 30 June – 7 July

Shadow a Leader

Tuesday 4 July
The aim of Shadow a Leader is to give Auckland secondary school students and AUT Faculty of Business and Law students the opportunity to follow a business leader for a day and to understand what it takes to succeed in the leader’s field of endeavour.

Students are identified as portraying future business leadership potential. Shadow a Leader chooses Year 13 Auckland secondary school business students and AUT Faculty of Business and Law students to “shadow” a business leader for the day.

The Lifewise Big Sleepout

Thursday 6 July
Held overnight at AUT's City Campus, the Lifewise Big Sleepout is aimed at raising serious funds and channelling significant attention in the direction of solving homelessness in the city of Auckland. It is a night where influential New Zealanders forgo their creature comforts for a night of ‘rough sleeping’ as a way of making a public stand against homelessness. Put simply, it’s a no-holds-barred approach to exposing what is often an invisible issue.
