NZ Symposium 2019 – It’s a wrap!

It was really quite satisfying to spend a couple of days with engagement colleagues growing our collective body of knowledge (matauranga) at our recent Symposium. The Matariki theme was focused on new beginnings and particularly relevant in that Christchurch is a city that has had more than its fair share of ‘engagement’ recently. Mostly due to the huge effort to help our people recover, rebuild and regenerate after a damaging series of earthquakes.
