Drawing on his experience leading health care organisations and the health system in Aotearoa New Zealand, including during periods of significant change and uncertainty, Sir Ashley’s closing plenary session will focus on how to lead effectively now and in the future. He will talk to NZIEC KI TUA delegates about leading through change and uncertainty.   

“We live in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world, which needs leaders to be agile and adaptable who can lead using different approaches than what we have used in the past. I am looking forward to speaking at NZIEC KI TUA on how we can lead in a world of rapid change and complexity, Sir Ashley said. 

Lead with Stories workshop by Jehan Casinader  

Award-winning journalist and speaker, Jehan Casinader, will run a workshop, Lead with Stories at NZIEC KI TUA on 7 August. Casinader has spent 15 years telling compelling stories that resonate with people from all walks of life. He has a thorough understanding of New Zealand’s international education sector – and a degree in public policy.  

Casinader says storytelling makes global influence possible 

As New Zealand revives its international education sector, leaders and organisations will work harder than ever to engage the hearts and minds of students and partners around the world.  

However, in an increasingly noisy digital world, it’s harder to grab people’s attention.  

"Traditional marketing no longer cuts it. And yet, many of us lack the confidence and skills to tell stories or we’re afraid to. As a result, our most important messages are never heard,” Casinader says.  

In his workshop, Casinader will share practical tools that helps leaders and staff from across the sector to tell compelling stories.  

The NZIEC KI TUA 2024 programme will be available in July.
