Chapter Events

EO New Zealand hosts a wide variety of local events designed to help members learn and grow as business leaders. As an EO member, you are given unprecedented access to chapter learning and social events, as well as special off-site activities, where you can participate in speaker sessions and assist in the growth of your community through philanthropic endeavours. Created specifically for members, and led by members, these chapter events are a prime opportunity to connect with local business owners, build business social networks, give back to your community and learn from some of the brightest minds in business.

Global Events

Imagine connecting with hundreds of likeminded, social entrepreneurs in an inspiring and educational setting, all while networking and sharing and receiving unprecedented access to top venues and the best minds in business— every member in EO has access to this and more learning opportunities through EO’s global events.

Whether you’re looking for next steps, best practices, tips or lessons learned, EO’s annual business networking events offer members the tools they need to excel in business and beyond. One of EO’s biggest events comes in the form of Universities, held twice a year in exotic locations around the world. These multi-faceted programs take members into the heart of thriving cities for a few days of intense entrepreneurial learning, business owner education, business-to-business networking and cultural engagement. Past Universities include:

  • EO Queenstown University
  • EO Cape Town University
  • EO Amsterdam University

Executive Education

At the core of EO’s mission is an unrelenting commitment to helping young and experienced entrepreneurs learn and grow on a personal and professional level. As a global thought leader on entrepreneurship, we strive to support the totality of the entrepreneur, knowing full well that their journey extends beyond their business. By supporting member growth as leaders in their family, community and industry, we can help build a better landscape for leading business owners today and tomorrow.

Integral to our leadership development plans are the executive-education opportunities we offer our top entrepreneurs; specifically, events and learning programs designed to provide members with the tools and resources they need to become business experts. By partnering with other entrepreneurial-minded organizations and business networks, and through relationships with some of the top business schools, EO creates opportunities for members to expand their business knowledge and enhance their leadership skills, while discovering new ways to contribute to the business world.

Some of our most popular executive-education and global entrepreneurship programs include:
