Rawdon Christie

You're most likely to know Rawdon from his award-winning broadcasting

career, which spanned 20 years with the BBC and Television New Zealand. 

His most high-profile role was as host of TVNZ's Breakfast programme, but some

may remember him as presenter of the political show Agenda and the NZ

version of Dragon’s Den.

He also anchored countless news bulletins over his 15 years with the BBC and

TVNZ, but his career highlight would undoubtedly be anchoring the many hours

of rolling coverage of the 2010 and 2011 Christchurch Earthquakes.

Rawdon left the television world to start his own media company and to work

as Creative Director at the National Business Review, but after four years of

running media training workshops and speaking at conferences, Covid-19

brought an abrupt end to the business. 

Rawdon moved swiftly into the real estate world and he is now one of Barfoot & Thompson’s top salespeople. But despite the demands of Auckland's ever-

moving property market, he still loves the opportunity to MC at a limited

number of events and conferences each year.
