Creative Leadership NZ 2020 | Taking A Break

Slowing down, reflecting on the current landscape and previous events plus being bold in saying no.

Have decided to press pause on this years Creative Leadership NZ conference. The three-time-sold-out experience for visionary humans looking to connect into a creative community to solve contemporary challenges will take a break for 2020 (check out 2019 / 2018 / 2017 event reviews).

The venue was lined up along with speakers and audio visual (AV) services. The idea was to drop the costs to $350 per person to make it accessible as well. Although, as you know I take an unusual approach of paying the speakers well for their contribution, and the ‘hard costs’ remain at whatever price I set it at. Therefore, 140 spots would have to be sold just to break even.

There’s a definite appetite out there for it again although in this current climate of restrictive professional development budgets, not the resources.

As I say: saying ‘no’ is a powerful ‘yes’ to something else.

Ergo, my energies will be devoted elsewhere which will be announced next week… oooh!
