About Steve

Welcome To Steve Hockley Business Coach

As a business coach, author and presenter, I draw on all my experiences to help businesses grow. My professional career has involved senior strategic and marketing roles with organisations such as The National Bank, Telecom, ANZ, AXA, and KiwiBank. I also have first-hand experience in running businesses – including a family business. In addition, I’m an Executive Director for the world’s biggest and best networking organisation, BNI, and have grown one of the most successful directorships in New Zealand.

Some of the most valuable insights I can bring come from the knowledge and understanding I’ve gained from coaching for over 10 years. I work with people who have all types of businesses, in all industries and stages of development – from owner-operated start-ups to professional services with a handful of staff, large intergenerational companies, and more. Everything I recommend is tried and true. I believe in taking a practical and realistic, yet ambitious approach to business growth. That means looking at the bigger picture, and setting meaningful and measurable short and long-term goals and timelines.

My Wealth Dynamics profile reveals that I’m a Supporter, which you can imagine perfectly lines up with being a business coach! My core skills include: motivating and finding people’s strengths, building strong relationships, connecting people with the tools they need, organising and leading teams, and developing effective communication channels between colleagues.

At the end of the day, I just love helping New Zealand businesses succeed. It’s so rewarding for me supporting businesses to grow, and enabling people to get what they want out of life. For me it’s an amazing moment when one of my clients is excited to tell me that their new strategy is working, and even exceeding their expectations. I really look forward to chatting with you, and finding out more about you and your business!


BNI is the best networking organisation in the world, and has helped countless businesses to generate growth. For the past eleven years I have been BNI Director for Wellington, and have developed one of the most successful directorships in the country – with around 360 active members. If you are interested in finding out more about the most effective business network available, and how your business can benefit, I’m more than happy to help!
