About the conference

We are delighted to announce the next edition of the Independent Schools of New Zealand Conference. 

Join us at the Grand Millennium, Auckland on Friday 22 June to Saturday 23 June. The Conference programme has been designed to explore the changing face of leadership with reference to the education sector and with specific attention to leadership in the age of disruption.

  • Leadership in the age of disruption
  • Adaptive, collaborative and creative leadership
  • Effective governance leadership
  • Digital disruption in the school sector
  • An overview of economic drivers for the future
  • The student voice in leadership
  • Developing emerging leaders
  • Managing multi-generational teams
  • Resilience in leadership
  • The return on investment of diversity in our schools
  • Building a strong brand in the age of disruption
