2021 Mood of the Boardroom scores

The annual Herald Mood of the Boardroom has occurred and as usual I summarise the scores CEOs give to key politicians. While CEOs are not representative of all NZers it is interesting to see how their scores have changed from last year and which MPs are seen as better and worse performing. Scores are on a 1 to 5 scale so 3 is middle.

  1. David Seymour 4.36 (+0.33)
  2. Grant Robertson 3.68 (-0.50)
  3. Kiri Allan 3.15
  4. James Shaw 3.06
  5. Jacinda Ardern 3.03 (-0.88)
  6. Chris Hipkins 2.96
  7. Andrew Bayly 2.86
  8. Andrew Little 2.85
  9. Ayesha Verrall 2.81
  10. Nanaia Mahuta 2.76
  11. Damien O’Connor 2.58
  12. David Parker 2.57
  13. Peeni Henare 2.51
  14. Aupito William Sio 2.40
  15. Megan Woods 2.38
  16. Stuart Nash 2.34
  17. Meka Whaitiri 2.33
  18. Jan Tinetti 2.22
  19. Willie Jackson 2.20
  20. Priyanca Radhakrishnan
  21. David Clark 2.17
  22. Kris Faafoi 2.17 (-1.41 from 2019)
  23. Michael Wood 2.15
  24. Marama Davidson 2.14
  25. Carmel Sepuloni 2.09
  26. Judith Collins 2.06 (-1.46)
  27. Poto Williams 1.98
  28. Phil Twyford 1.79
  29. Kelvin Davis 1.73

Phil Twyford will be glad he has Kelvin there to make him look good.

They also rate Ardern in a number of different areas:

  1. Representing NZ overseas 4.0
  2. Leverages personal brand 3.9
  3. Stands up to US 3.42
  4. Political performance 3.30
  5. Stands up to China 3.28
  6. Covid response 3.01
  7. Climate change response 2.84
  8. Security and intelligence 2.45
  9. Transformative change 2.08
  10. Build confidence with business 1,97

So Ardern gets high marks for international stuff, average for Covid and below average for the transformative change she promised.
