  • Ian Harvey


    Harv is the founder of Collective Intelligence. His inspiration stemmed from his observation as a company director that key staff were often not supported as individuals to develop their own potential.

    Starting out as Collective Intelligence’s first and only Facilitator 11 years ago, Harv’s role now within Collective Intelligence is to oversee the teams, recruit new members, and keep developing this unique concept. His vision is to develop a professional community in New Zealand that supports its members to achieve their potential.

    He sees his work as being the Chief Cheerleader – the founder who supports the whole team’s efforts in order to give the best results to Collective Intelligence’s members.
