Read Craigs Full Bio
Craig started his career in the flexible packaging industry and then moved on to develop a highly successful employment agency in Christchurch. His roles have included all facets of business management including operations, directorships and ownership as a Joint Venture Partner. He has always succeeded through effective team management and loves to see people and teams grow and prosper.
Craig has successfully guided two businesses from the planning stage, through startup and on to become multi-million dollar companies. During the last 7 years Craig’s greatest challenges came from the Christchurch earthquake, where he assisted both his own business and many of his customers to adapt to the new environment and achieve rapid growth and business success. As a business owner himself, Craig is well aware of the challenges all business owners face on a daily basis, and how unforeseen events can rapidly change a business for the better or worse.
Teamwork, planning and achievement of both personal and business goals are at the forefront in everything he does. Having recently sold his own business and travelled the world for a year, Craig is living proof that anyone can achieve their dreams.
Craig and his wife Andi love the outdoors so, when not working, you will find them walking, tramping and camping their way around New Zealand or travelling to Melbourne to spend time with their daughter and grandsons.
Craig is enjoying the challenge of taking business owners on a journey to live their dreams, get the most out of life, prosper and have fun.
Contact Craig Henwood
Craig is a business coach of high quality & I would certainly recommend him to anyone in business that wants to get the best out of their business.
I have been involved with Craig and The Alternative Board for about 2 years. The regular board meetings and coaching sessions are invaluable. Meeting with other business owners and discussing relevant business issues, with Craig as the mentor has benefitted me and my businesses greatly.

Read Steve's Full Bio
Steve’s broad commercial skillset has been developed through exposure to a wide variety of industries including, banking and finance, automotive, hospitality and property. His responsibilities have included developing and managing the execution of strategic plans, financial management, and developing, motivating and managing staff levels ranging in size from 10-200.
During his time in the banking and finance sector, Steve was heavily involved in lending to small to medium-sized businesses. This necessitated the need to clearly understand how such businesses operate and the challenges and opportunities that small to medium-sized business owners face in their day to day activities.
In addition to his executive roles, Steve has gained board room experience through chairing two not-for-profit organisations, over a combined period of twelve years. During this time Steve gained a valuable insight into the key differences between the governance and operational aspects of a business.
Now the owner of The Alternative Board in Christchurch and North Canterbury, Steve is relishing the opportunity to use his background and experience to provide a rewarding membership experience to local business owners and business leaders.
