The New Zealand American Association & Fulbright New Zealand
combined to host Jon Johansson's presentation at the AGM of the NZAA
on Wednesday, 30th AUGUST.
BOTH ENDS OF THE TELESCOPE
NZ-US Leadership Across Political Time
Senior lecturer in Comparative Politics at Victoria University, Fulbrighter Jon Johansson, took us on a tour de force of US/NZ Leadership, while demonstrating - with appropriate anecdotes - the five US presidents (Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, FDR & Reagan), and four NZ premiers/prime ministers (Vogel, Seddon, Savage & Lange) who presided over big change, major crises, and/or pivot points in their respective histories. What emerged was a clear set of dimensions that comprise political leadership, with lessons learned.
This presentation followed on from a very well attended AGM of the New Zealand American Association (Inc.).
We would like to thank Fulbright New Zealand for the use of their seminar room.
