  • ACE New Zealand Conference 2022

    To do better business, we need big thinking. Professional services consultants throughout Aotearoa are operating in an environment of uncertainty as we navigate the challenges of local government reforms, skills shortages, COVID-19, disruptive technologies and environmental change.

    We need to think carefully about the future of work – how to create a first-class consulting experience, engage authentically, develop our workforce, lead productive teams, deliver on climate change and sustainability commitments, and harness technology to work smarter, not harder.

    While we've been forced to rethink how we do business as usual, we also need to think about what our mahi looks like in the years ahead.

    We need to lift our game as a sector, and that means reconnecting face-to-face, being in the same room as one another, coming out of our silos and making new connections to shift our focus to the future.

    The 2022 ACE New Zealand conference will explore the challenges and opportunities that professional services consultants face in these uncertain times and provide practical business solutions that can be applied in small, medium and large firms.

    You will hear from innovative and inspiring speakers who will offer local and global perspectives on the issues we face, allowing us to think about the future of work with a broader lens.

    We encourage you to take this time to work on your business, not in your business, in a collaborative space surrounded by leaders who are delivering critical technology, construction, infrastructure and environmental solutions for Aotearoa.

    Rotorua is a remarkable location where we will be surrounded by natural beauty, thriving industries and manaakitanga – we hope to see you there.

  • How to create a mentally healthy workplace

    Employers have a responsibility to ensure their people are working in mentally safe work environments, and that they are taking action to reduce mental health risks in the workplace.

    Businesses that invest in building and maintaining good mental wellbeing report higher productivity, sales and customer satisfaction. But it can be hard to know where to start.

    We’re partnering with the Business Leaders' Health and Safety Forum to share their framework for managing mental health and wellbeing at work and strategies you can implement to design mentally healthy workplaces.

    This webinar is the first in a programme of work we are leading to grow awareness and encourage action in this space for our members, to enable more sustainable and enduring businesses.

    Join this session to hear from Dr Hillary Bennett, a health and safety leadership coach and mental wellbeing researcher who has worked with the Business Leaders’ Health and Safety Forum to create the evidenced-based framework to support organisations to effectively design mentally healthy workplaces.
