Programme for the second half of 2015
The TUANZ After 5’s is a long established tradition and we are thrilled to be able to announce the schedule for the second half of 2015. The After 5’s provide an opportunity for members and invited guests to hear from member organisations the latest thought leadership around ICT developments. They provide an informal and welcoming environment which enables members to also meet and network. Employees of members organisations, and individual members get to attend those functions at no cost as part of their membership.
Our aim in putting on this programme has been to provide a number of sessions which include relevant and timely information for members. Each After 5 includes networking time, as well as a 30 min presentation by the host or a panel discussion on the topic at hand. And we are pleased to be able to deliver the After 5's across Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
