Term 3 Roadshows: August - September 2017

Straight off the back of our very successful conference in Christchurch (with 160 attendees) we are back into Roadshow mode.
The Term 3 Roadshows will see us offer 2 half day sessions for Senior Management throughout the North Island.
You may wish to register for the morning, afternoon or both.  There will be a 1 hour break between sessions.  
It will be a long (and we feel worthwhile) day.  The morning session starts at 9.30am and the afternoon session at 1pm with both running for 2.5 hrs.
From the feedback we have had, parking has been an issue in the past for our Auckland sessions so both will be held at the Highbrook BNZ Centre, as there is plenty of onsite parking.  We realise this will mean more of a drive for some but it was the best option we felt would work for attendees.
Locations and Dates:
  • 21st Aug – Porirua, Wellington
  • 23rd Aug – Lower Hutt, Wellington
  • 24th Aug - New Plymouth
