That's the challenge we set three of the country's top businesspeople as we prepared to publish Career13, the latest edition of our annual survey of employment opportunities.

We asked these 'thought leaders' to consider questions such as:

We read headlines about a flat economy, manufacturing in crisis, rising unemployment,a widening gap between the haves and have nots, our best and brightest high-tailing it to Aussie. What's gone wrong and how do we get it right?

The best-known names in New Zealand business have taken up the challenge. We will publish their essays in each of the three editions of Career13.

We identified our 'thought leaders' because of the contributions they have made to the New Zealand community over and above their business interests. In return, the NZ Herald is donating $1000 to a charity nominated by each writer.
