Our Founder

Dr Geoff Lorigan CNZM is the Founder and Director of the Institute for Strategic Leader and Smart Leader Diagnostics. A strong thread that weaves throughout Geoff’s multiple careers is innovation and leadership, at both company and industry levels — nationally and internationally.  Along the way Geoff created new products, restructured businesses, and improved market dynamics in the dairy, meat, university, and strategic leadership development sectors.
 
Geoff was awarded the Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit in the 2022 New Years Royal Honours by the New Zealand Government for his contribution to Business and Leadership Development.
