Canterbury Young Professionals Inc.

Executive Committee

  • Lukas Lasek

    Role: President

    Works for: Labourforce

    I joined CYP in 2015 and have thoroughly enjoyed being an active member. CYP as an organisation aims to bring young people together, people from all backgrounds and occupations. Since joining, I have experienced this first-hand and have met many interesting people, formed business contacts and made close friends. Because of this I decided to join the committee to be part of the fantastic team trying to make a difference in young peoples lives in Canterbury.

    Outside of CYP I have several years of business experience, primarily in construction, hospitality, insurance and recruitment. Currently I work as a Consultant for Labourforce and its associating companies. I enjoy being part of creative and business ventures, playing sports, music, and socialising with people over a beer or coffee.

    We’re a friendly bunch so make sure you join us at our next event and come say hello.

    Role: General Committee

    Being born and bred in Christchurch, I have experienced the true resilience of Canterbury. Through every challenge that our city has faced, we have grown as a community to overcome any obstacle. CYP is a collective that helps create bonds between us working professionals and assist in the personal, social and professional development of our members. I am proud to be part of the team that helps facilitate that.

    I currently operate Sim Digital, a business which provides services such as Web & Graphic Design, Photography & Videography. I hope that my skill set will help benefit the CYP team and our organisation.
