9781483668413: Life Changing: Learning from the Past; Fixing the Future

In Life Changing, Alasdair Thompson outlines the events surrounding his sacking as chief executive of the Employers and Manufacturers Association, New Zealand's largest business membership organisation, after twelve years of reorganisation and rebuilding the Association. He reveals his upbringing, the people and events that shaped him, his views on business, economics and public policy, and outlines a career in local government and in various local authorities and boards. We see the man behind the media target, and he shares his beliefs and values, his crises, as well as personal transformation and newfound faith and peace. Thompson's was at the centre of a media maelstrom that led to his downfall. This book describes how he and his family coped with the aftermath and ultimately moved on, happier and stronger.

About the Author:

ALASDAIR THOMPSON, a New Zealander businessman, married with two adult children and four grandchildren, came from a farming background, became an accountant, studied economics and gained a postgraduate diploma in public policy. He was a three-term mayor of the Thames-Coromandel District, a director of Power New Zealand, commissioner of the Waikato Area Health Board and CEO of New Zealand's Employers and Manufacturers Association. In 2011, he was the subject of an international media furore for saying that some women's menstruation affects their productivity and thus income. This was in response to proposed legislation to make transparent the 12 per cent gender pay gap in New Zealand. As a consequence, Thompson lost his job as CEO of the powerful Employers and Manufacturers Association for bringing the organisation into disrepute. Life Changing is his response to his demise.
