2021 New Zealand Symposium presentation recordings

What's on your mind? NZ Symposium banner

Now available for IAP2 ANZ members to revisit and watch.

Great news for IAP2 ANZ members, we have now opened up the New Zealand Symposium recordings to members.

For those new to the IAP2A Community, the New Zealand Symposium brings together engagement practitioners, community development practitioners, communications and marketing professionals and academics to explore the diverse and challenging topic of community and stakeholder engagement. It’s a great event to share, learn and network with your fellow engagers.

The 2021 New Zealand Symposium was held in Auckland in late May. That’s right – a real in-person event and it was great to have that face-to-face connection again. We hope all of our attendees had a great time and managed to take-away some key learnings and insights. You can read more about this event with our wrap-up from IAP2A director, working group member and attendee, Jo Wilkins.

You can still view the event line-up of keynote speakers, and informative and interactive sessions presented by your fellow engagers via the programme.
