We hold events for our alumni, friends, and the general public for people to connect with the important conversations in leadership.
Subject matter experts and prominent New Zealand leaders share their knowledge and engage with the audience, sparking new ideas and innovation as minds from different backgrounds converge and focus their energy on a salient issue or theme.
