The packed program includes changing employment demographics, an interactive panel on the future of industrial relations with the Council of Trade Unions (CTU), Business NZ, our Australian counterparts and Lane Neave Lawyers. Presentations from Auckland Transport, the Ministry of Education, and NZ Transport Agency leaders will flesh out more of the government’s visions for industry, with plenty of time for questions!

Implementing fully-electric buses, e-scooters, ride-sharing, an exciting technical stream for workshop staff and an inspirational session from Sir Ian Ferguson.
