Round Table maxim

Round Table motto or a maxim comes from a speech made to the British Industries Fair in 1927 by the then HRH Prince Edward, Prince of Wales ‘The young business and professional men of this country must get together round the table , adopt methods that have proved so sound in the past, adapt them to the changing needs of the time, and wherever possible, improve them’.

This speech quickened Mark`s enthusiasm, and led to a meeting at Suckling House in Norwich on 14th March 1927 at which “Round Table” was formed.

A mixture of respect, banter and belonging which does not exist elsewhere!

Round Table New Zealand is a National Association of Tables (clubs) based throughout New Zealand, dating back to 1953 .

We welcome men from all backgrounds, between the ages of 18 – 45 to #DoMore!

Our clubs encourage members to have LOTS of fun, and offer a way to meet new friends, learn new skills and give something back to your local communities.

New and existing members are given the opportunity to take responsibilities within the Table and shape its future. We encourage our members to be active, take an intelligent approach to being a good citizen, accept and display civic responsibility and to promote high standards in both business and professional life.

Most clubs meet up around twice a month, to enjoy a variety of activities and projects.   Internationally, over 35,00 people are members of Round Table, across every continent, offering a truly global network for business potential, travel and friendship.
