Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 28 June 2011

Air New Zealand is on the hunt for the New Zealands most promising young leaders to take part in its annual CEO for the Day programme.

Ten senior high school students will be chosen to join the airlines CEO Rob Fyfe and his executive team for an inspirational day behind the scenes at the national carrier.

The inaugural CEO for the Day in 2010 was hugely successful with a group of potential high-flying executives from around the country taking part and the airline expects this years programme to be just as popular.

As a major New Zealand company its important that we play a role in fostering our next generation of leaders, said Mr. Fyfe. Its a real privilege for me to spend some time with these students and give them a taste of the aviation industry and what its like to lead a dynamic and distinctly Kiwi airline.

Students chosen will take part in a range of exciting activities including a tour of the airlines engineering base, an interactive strategy session, a sneak peak at the innovations being created in the design lab and a sponsorship talk with some of the airlines celebrity partners.

Entries for CEO for the Day are being accepted now. To enter, students need to visit the website and tell the airline how they would make a difference if they were CEO of Air New Zealand for a day. Entries close 5pm, Monday 18 July 2011. Winners will be announced in late July, prior to the August event.
