Doctoral Research Study in New Zealand and South Africa seeks to identify currently successful  entrepreneurial leadership patterns using the COVID-19 crisis as a testing ground.

Are you a business owner / entrepreneurial leader in New Zealand or South Africa that has led your business through the COVID-19 crisis successfully so far?

Our future business leaders need your help!

Calling all business owners and entrepreneurial leaders of  businesses of all sizes, in New Zealand and South Africa whose businesses, across all industries, have survived or thrived through the COVID-19 crisis (so far)! Sandy Geyer, the founder of EnQPractice ( is an entrepreneurial leader herself and works professionally in the area of entrepreneurial leadership and student leadership. Sandy is currently engaged in a doctoral research study of professional practice with Capable NZ, at Otago Polytechnic in New Zealand. This is an invitation to participate in her study in New Zealand and South Africa which aims to identify and understand currently successful entrepreneurial leadership competencies, with a view to better preparing our future entrepreneurial and enterprise leaders with these competencies.  Whilst it is understandable that many in entrepreneurial leadership are feeling fatigued and possibly quite fragile through the COVID-19 crisis – there are two very good reasons to participate in this research study.

  • Firstly, your time collectively on this study will provide a depth of data that will help our future leaders in New Zealand to cope better with the
    challenges that might lie ahead for them;
  • and secondly, as a participant, you can request a copy of the research results which could be insightful and helpful to your own business
    leadership journey. Participation is completely anonymous and any volunteered email addresses will be used only for the specifically authorised purpose.
