Each Chapter hosts a number of events and networking opportunities throughout the year, some are face to face and Chapter specific and some are open to all Chapters via online SIGs and webinars. Chapter events are a great opportunity to meet colleagues who work in the same areas and streams as you, to ask questions, network with other professionals and leave feeling inspired!



After a long time coming, we can officially declare the NZ Chapter Conference 2022, in association with Enquiry Tracker, a huge success!

Educate Plus would like to take a moment to thank our NZ Chapter Committee and NZ Conference Committee for their time and dedication in putting this fabulous event together. The number of happy faces in the photos is a glowing testimonial of how well received this Conference has been.

Thank you to our wonderful speakers and panellists for sharing your experience, your expertise and your stories.

The power of bringing people together to learn, to network and to be inspired, should never be underestimated.

Finally, a big shout out to our wonderful Partners, Sponsors, and Exhibitors, without their support an event such as this would not happen…thank you!
