ENZ’s Connect seminar series returns in 2018

Education New Zealand is pleased to extend an invitation to international education professionals for its June “Connect” seminar series.

ENZ CE Grant McPherson.

The seminars will be hosted by ENZ Chief Executive Grant McPherson and General Manager Industry Development Greg Scott.

ENZ is planning to use this face-to-face time to listen to industry partners and participants will be encouraged to share insights throughout each seminar. 

“We want to offer practical support to our industry," Mr McPherson said.

“To help us achieve this, it would be valuable to hear about your experiences. For example, what are the biggest challenges you face? Where do you see opportunity? How can ENZ better assist the international education industry from your perspective?”

Attendees will also receive an update on ENZ’s strategic direction and current priorities. What these insights mean for industry and how ENZ’s work can be leveraged will also be discussed.   

“ENZ looks to do the longer term strategic thinking to help provide real intelligence and direction for New Zealand’s international education industry,” said Mr McPherson.

The series will involve seven workshops in six New Zealand cities. The seminars are open to all international education professionals. They will be particularly valuable for leaders and international staff from:
