Our dynamic conference connects local and overseas personalities and stories to highlight the journeys and leadership of Chinese people in New Zealand and throughout the world. NZCA Auckland Branch was inspired to organise this milestone event following on from the overwhelmingly positive response to our two earlier Going Bananas initiatives in 2005 and 2006.
We are privileged to be able to hold this year’s conference in a stunning world class facility, The University of Auckland Business School. We trust that all attendees will enjoy the proceedings, the discussions and the networking in this state-of-the-art environment.
The success of any event results from the efforts, commitment and support of many people. I wish to express my sincere thanks to the speakers, the sponsors, the volunteer helpers and the Organising Committee whose hard work and planning over the past 12 months have made this conference possible.
In addition, I wish to make a special note of appreciation to Ants Sang for again providing a stunning cartoon logo which brilliantly captures the innovative theme of this Conference.
