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
His 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. He says: “Working in this area 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. This understanding is invaluable when helping members of The Alternative Board.”
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, gaining valuable insight into the key differences between the governance and operational aspects of a business. Now as the owner of The Alternative Board in Christchurch and North Canterbury, Steve relishes the opportunity to use his background and experience to provide a rewarding membership experience to local business owners and business leaders.
