It’s easy for “proven leadership experience” to feel like a soundbite at this stage in the campaign: however, here’s a clip about how we built a healthcare system that could respond to some of New Zealand’s largest disasters including earthquakes, fires, the Christchurch terror attacks, and the Whakaari/ White Island volcano response.
When I was the Chief Executive Officer with the Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB), 89% of staff said they felt that they contributed to the success of the DHB. Similarly of patients who received care from the CDHB, during this time, 88% said their physical and emotional needs were met.
I have proven experience in leading large organisations, developing trust and confidence with both those who are accessing services and those who are delivering services. I need your vote to bring that same experience and leadership to the Christchurch City Council – make sure you post your vote today.
