The Hugo Group informs Hugo Panel members in several different ways.
Panel members meet at least 12 times a year in both Wellington and Auckland
at a working breakfast to analyse the international, economic, political,
public policy and industrial environments in the light of confidential
briefings from the Hugo Group experts.
Guest speakers present their views and are closely questioned. The Chatham
House rule of confidentiality applies, allowing very free discussion.
Speakers are senior ministers, leading opposition politicians and other
policy makers. Occasionally outside experts contribute.
Occasionally additional Panel meetings are held after major events or
for special guests.
The Hugo Group members are available for brief consultations by phone.
For an additional fee the group provides special in-house briefings for
individual Panel members to add value to a board meeting or a strategic
planning meeting or at a function for panel members clients.
Specialist research can also be arranged.
