Rt Hon Bill English Prime Minister Last year, New Zealand was ranked the fourth-safest country in the world. We want to make it number one.

Debra Buckley CEO of the New Zealand Institute of Management and Leadership. www.nzimleadership.co.nz I have been reflecting upon a comment by John Key, at his departure, that “every good leader knows when their time is up”.
