Change Makers and Achieving Change

Tuesday 19 February 2019 and Wednesday 20 February 2019
Naumi Airport Hotel, Auckland

Having and building a just culture is increasingly becoming more difficult as communities struggle with income equality, changing work place needs, less access to supports, more diversity and at times less hope. There are however those who challenge the system, who navigate and bring about a change in both mindset and expectation. Ordinary people who do extra-ordinary things.

Come and be inspired and learn the secrets to succeeding in a world that offers more challenges and opportunities than we can imagine.

We have secured inspirational speakers who can't wait to share their stories with an engaged audience. 

Who should attend?

If your work involves developing strategy, recruiting, managing or supervising staff and volunteers, leading a team, or workforce planning – then the National Not-For-Profit Sector Conference is an event you cannot afford to miss in 2019.

The conference is designed for CEOs and senior managers, Board and Committee members, team leaders and volunteer managers . . . and anyone passionate about the NFP sector!
