The Wellington PHLP will be held at Naumi Conference Centre located at 213–223 Cuba St, Wellington. Cuba St is at the heart of Wellington’s vibrant café and eclectic shopping area. The venue is only a few minutes’ walk to the waterfront, the CBD and some of Wellington’s best cafés and restaurants. The venue includes hotel accommodation. Further information about the venue is available on the Naumi Hotel’s website.


The Christchurch PHLP will be held at the Sudima Christchurch City Hotel located at 49 Salisbury Street, Christchurch. This brand-new 5-star boutique hotel is ideally located on Victoria Street amidst an array of cafes, restaurants and bars, and is close to both Hagley Park and Christchurch’s CBD. Find out more on the Sudima website.


PHLP is funded by the Ministry of Health. This includes tuition, programme resources, 360-degree feedback, personal leadership profile, four one-on-one coaching sessions, development of a personal leadership plan and access to a continuing support network of PHLP graduates. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided on each course day.

Participants are expected to cover their own accommodation, travel, breakfast and evening meal costs.

Time commitment

We are often asked how much time needs to be set aside to complete the Programme. A general guideline would be to allow at least two days to complete pre-work requirements prior to the first workshop. You must attend full workshop days (two days x three workshops). Allow around 4–8 hours between workshops for coaching sessions, Leaderlabs and prework/readings.
