To round off 2022 and look towards 2023, our Chief Executive Helen Davidson and Board President Ceinwen McNeil invite you to ‘a year in review’ in your region.
Our ACE Regional Chairs will host in-person events in each region across the country where Helen and Ceinwen will dial in for their virtual presentation from the event in Christchurch, hosted by Regional Chair, Andrew Davidson.
We'll reflect on the challenges and opportunities of 2022, what that has meant for professional services firms and ACE New Zealand, and what we can look forward to in 2023.
