The time is fast approaching for our annual Collaborative Aotearoa Symposium on the Thursday 1st of September. Packed full of industry knowledge and inspiring speakers, with delicious kai and hosted at the beautiful venue of Te Wharewaka o Poneke on the Wellington waterfront, this is an event not to be missed!
We are looking forward to hearing the insights of so many leaders and experts, including Helen Robinson (Auckland City Missioner), Margie Apa (Tumu Whakarae – Te Whatu Ora), and Riana Manuel (Tumu Whakarae – Te Aka Whai Ora). Our workshops will be engaging and inspiring, with a range of community organisations, general practice, and lived experience experts helping guide us in some in-depth kōrero.
In addition, we are now deeply excited to announce the attendance of a special guest, the Honourable Minister of Health Andrew Little, who will be our closing speaker for the day. Having Minister Little in attendance gives us a truly one-of-a-kind opportunity to hear directly on changes to the Health Sector.
