Kia Ora

On behalf of myself and the CINZ team, I would like to invite you to join us in Christchurch for the CINZ Annual Conference and AGM for 2015.

This is my home town and I am delighted to take the opportunity to showcase the developments that Christchurch is experiencing in all aspects of the city to our members. I am sure you will find the venues that we are using a true reflection of the city, the Hagley Cricket Pavilion, The Transitional Cathedral and the Isaac Theatre Royal.

Our theme this year is “Growing Together”, apt for Christchurch are in growth phase and for CINZ as we endeavour to work with you to grow your business and your people.

We have listened to the feedback from our 2014 Conference in Rotorua and have shortened up the programme to allow people to maximise the time in Christchurch and minimise the time out of the office.

We have also built on the need for education, again reflected in the 2014 and 2013 feedback. Our key note speakers will run seminars on their topics, allowing for greater knowledge sharing.

Our range of keynote speakers, workshops and industry updates are highly relevant and I am sure you will find value in each speaker.

As always the networking opportunities are a focus of the Conference. We know the relationships are developed over a coffee or an evening drink. There are a range of morning activities and delegates are invited to explore Christchurch and Canterbury on pre or post famils.

During the conference I will be providing you with an update on the CINZ year 2014/2015, CINZ strategy and the work that we are doing to educate our members.

I look forward to seeing you in Christchurch in spring.
