Conventions and Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) is unveiling a new professional development and education programme for MEETINGS 2020 in Auckland.
CINZ Chief Executive, Lisa Hopkins says event planners visiting MEETINGS for the day on either 22 or 23 April can choose to hear from four different speakers and gain fascinating insights and learnings to take back to their businesses.
“Anyone responsible for organising events from board meetings to team building activities, staff functions, parties or award ceremonies can attend MEETINGS free of charge, meet with any of 190 exhibitors from 18 regions across New Zealand, and boost their knowledge at the same time,” she says.
Opening the MEETINGS Education Series on 22 April is former New Zealander of the Year, Dr Lance O’Sullivan, who will address the subject of courageous leadership and how to be brave, resilient and innovative in an ever-changing world.
Celebrity chef, entrepreneur and health ambassador Simon Gault, will talk about his own diabetes journey, and the knowledge he gained from research during his role as presenter of the critically-acclaimed documentary series ‘Why Are We Fat?’ covering issues including nutrition, sleep, and fitness.
MEETINGS is held across two days at ASB Showgrounds, and free parking is available. The new MEETINGS Education Series’ speakers are scheduled for 10am to 10.45am and 2.45pm to 3.30 pm on 22 and 23 April.
