Psychologist and Paralympian join CINZ Conference speaker line-up

Four more speakers have been announced for the 43rd Conventions and Incentives New Zealand (CINZ) annual conference, to be held in Queenstown later this month.

CINZ Chief Executive Sue Sullivan (pictured) says psychologist Nigel Latta, economist Shamubeel Eaqub, paralympian Liam Malone, and management strategist Tony Gardner will join a group of 25 influential keynote, panel and workshop presenters to explore the conference theme, ‘Inspiring New Thinking’.

“Across two days we will be covering all the areas where new thinking is key to success — sustainability practices, resilience, social impact and legacy, international trends, and leadership skills,” she says.

Psychologist, TV documentary host and author Nigel Latta will speak about adopting new habits and new trends at work.

CINZ Board Chair, Tony Gardner is Managing Partner at Catapult Auckland a management consultancy company specialising in organisational strategy, high performing teams and leadership development. He will speak about what it takes to be a great leader and what kinds of new and inspired thinking is required for these times. His workshop will then offer a deep dive into the key leadership challenges today.

Liam Malone, young New Zealand paralympian and the world’s number one bladerunner, will tell the inspirational story of his rise to achieving two Golds and a Silver medal at the 2016 Paralympic Games.

More than 140 CINZ members  including owners and managers of key venues, catering companies, accommodation providers, activity operators and regional convention bureaux will meet on 30 and 31 October at Skyline Queenstown. They will be also welcomed on 29 October to a function hosted at Gibbston Valley Winery, and farewelled on 31 October with a gala dinner at Walter Peak High Country farm.
