3 reasons you cannot miss this year’s NZME Women's Leadership Symposium​

Symposium audience

Every so often an event comes along that is truly unmissable. This year, that event is unequivocally the NZME New Zealand Women's Leadership Symposium

If you are a woman who lives in New Zealand and you are in any kind of leadership role (whether this be in the corporate world, running your own business or even as boss of your household), then the Symposium, due to be held from 21 to 22 June at the Langham Hotel in Auckland, is an event you need to attend. Here is why it is going to be so incredible:   

If it is anything like its Australian counterpart, it will be HUGE

The NZME Women’s Leadership Symposium may be debuting in New Zealand this year but it has got a long history of outstanding success in Australia. In fact, it has been so successful in Australia that it is now the mostly highly attended women’s leadership event in the country and it regularly receives rave reviews. Here are a few worth mentioning: 

'[The Symposium] provided great role models for the leader I want to become.'

'It gave me the inspiration to say yes I can, yes I can be a leader. It also made me think about what’s important in life, and has given me the confidence to start to make those choices.' 

'Inspirational women talking about their journeys has given me a new lease on my career aspirations. It assured me that leadership is different and we all bring different strengths to the table, and we should be confident in this.'

And there are many more like that. Who would not want to attend an event that has such an incredible impact? 

The speaker line up is amazing 

Just like its Australian counterpart, the NZME Women’s Leadership Symposium has a diverse, exciting and truly exceptional group of speakers.  

This year’s line-up brings together women who are leaders in many different sectors, including Makaia Carr, Founder of Motivate Me NZ; Dr Jackie Blue, Equal Opportunities Commissioner, Human Rights Commission; Barbara Kendall, Olympic Athlete; and a whole host of other inspiring women who will share their stories of success (and failures, of course!)  

Grow your network – your career will thank you 

Research shows that when women are surrounded by a group of supportive, like-minded colleagues they are much more likely to succeed. And what better way to meet like-minded female leaders than at an inspiring and intriguing conference focused specifically on gender equality, females in leadership, career advancement and life fulfilment.  

So if you want to expand your network, grow your support group and be inspired, then the NZME Women’s Leadership Symposium is definitely the place for you. 

For a limited time only (up until 28 April – so hurry!) you can grab an early bird ticket to the Symposium, which entitles you to up to $500 off the standard price. Grab yours ASAP
