DB Breweries has announced that applications are open for the 2017 DB Leading Light Scholarships.

The scholarships are awarded to members of the South Auckland business community, with the aim of further developing and enhancing the pool of first class leadership talent in the region.

In partnership with the New Zealand Leadership Institute (NZLI), five ‘DB Leading Lights’ will be selected to take part in the NZLI Leadership Mindset Programme in 2017.

DB Breweries Corporate Relations Manager, Amber McEwen, says she is thrilled to see the scholarship programme extend into its third year. “DB has been based in South Auckland for more than 85 years and we’re committed to continuing to grow with our community. Through our ‘Brewing a Better World programme’, we’re working on initiatives that enable us to support and develop our wider South Auckland community from both a social and environmental standpoint,” she says.

“These scholarships are designed to foster development and learning opportunities for South Auckland-based leaders to enable a step-change in their personal and professional lives. We believe that this will have a positive flow on effect to the wider community in which we all operate. And we couldn’t ask for a better partner in New Zealand Leadership Institute – their programmes are truly world class.”

The DB Leading Light scholarships are open to all managers and leaders who live or work in the South Auckland area.
