Together with our primary sponsor Skills, TUANZ and FLINT are proud to offer a programme catered to our future leaders. The programme consists of five lunch-time sessions over the course of three months, as well as on-going networking opportunities through the NextGen Alumni group.
This is a free programme.
To register, you or your organisation must be a member of TUANZ or FLINT.

How much does it cost to take part in NextGen?
It’s free! Skills are sponsoring the programme again this year, so make sure to like their Facebook page and show them some love.
Where does NextGen take place? Will I have to travel?
NextGen will be delivered online through the video platform Zoom. We think that it should be as accessible as possible and acknowledge that limiting the programme to one urban location would exclude a lot of possible members. However, we often hear feedback that having one face-to-face session would be really worthwhile, so we’d like to hold one session at a smart meeting room. People on the programme would be invited to travel to Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch (depending on their location) to take part in that session.
What work is involved in NextGen?
Committing to all the sessions is really important. The first session will be vital. So your time is the biggest commodity we are asking for. Over the course of the programme, ou are invited to co-design and facilitate discussions on topics that match your interes. There might be some activities or conversations that you’ll be invited to do with a partner in between sessions. This will deepen the thinking around a topic and also provide you a chance to build connections and new networks with other leaders.
What else do I get for being part of NextGen?
You will be invited to join a NextGen alumni group on Facebook. This is a closed group for previous participants who joined NextGen as early as 2016. This group is a place to share insights, helpful articles, stay connected, read reminders about the sessions ahead and more.
How many people are able to take part?
We think a group of 8-10 leaders will be about right.
