NZAGE Summit

Thursday, 15 October 2015

NZAGE is delighted to announce that registrations for our 2015 Summit and Industry Awards Dinner are now open!

The 2015 NZAGE Summit ‘Daring to be different’ proudly supported by CPA Australia and AttractHQ will bring together New Zealand graduate and ‘youth’ employers, suppliers and tertiary providers across all industries for an informative and interactive day of presentations, panel sessions and workshops.

The aim of this event is to explore the key issues and challenges facing the graduate industry, while providing delegates with the opportunity to explore solutions, share ideas and hear about recent trends from industry experts.

This full day event is open to graduate and wider youth employers, suppliers, those interested in establishing Graduate programmes or youth strategies in their organisation, tertiary providers, career counsellors or anyone involved in attraction, selection and development of graduates and youth in their organisation.

Confirmed keynote speakers and industry leaders include:

Rebecca Milne (Partner at Aera Foundation, founded by entrepreneur Derek Handley);

Terry Shubkin (CEO Young Enterprise Trust and finalist in the 2015 Women of influence awards);

Kate Peterson (Consulting and Executive Development leader who has previously held a number of General Management and executive HR roles within Meridian Energy, PGG Wrightson and Lion Australasia).

As well as a great line up of speakers attendees will participate in workshops from NZAGE’s own Survey research team discussing the 2015 Candidate and Employer Surveys, Tertiary Career Development and Employment Services mangers, NZAGE Industry awards category finalists and more.

In addition to the full-day conference programme, the NZAGE are proud to present the 3rd Annual NZAGE Industry Awards ceremony as part of the Summit dinner. The Industry Awards Dinner is where we celebrate best practice in the recruitment, selection and development of graduate talent, and award industry excellence.

2015 has been a big year for NZAGE. We have seen the largest number of NZAGE award entries ever and the largest level of responses to our NZAGE Employer and Candidate Surveys. Join the team for an action packed conference which represents one of the most comprehensive and cost effective events for anyone with an interest in the graduate and youth space. Tim Watts (Chairperson NZAGE)
