We were very excited to open the 2021 conference registrations at the beginning of October, as we usually do, but unfortunately, the new outbreak of COVID-19 in New Zealand means that we are unsure of the lockdown restrictions come November, especially around Auckland.
With this in mind, the RemNet Committee has made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s conference. As always our aim is to deliver a high valued and best in class conference which we feel is best achieved by moving the conference to the new year – our new dates will be Thursday, 3rd March – Friday, 4th March 2022.
The theme for this conference is ‘Evolve – Thriving in a New Normal”, focusing on different strategies and tools we use to improve our new world of work. We hope you enjoy our wide array of speakers who will share their insights on how we can not just survive but thrive in this new normal. The amazing Michele A’Court will be back with her great positive energy to MC the conference!
The theme is Evolve – Thriving in a new normal and we have a great line up of international and local speakers including:
