The 2021 New Zealand CFO Summit

22 June 2021, Aotea Centre, Auckland 

Creating a brighter future 


New Zealand has the world’s attention. The fortuity of our geography combined with our rapid and collective response to the disruption of the pandemic has allowed us the freedom to adapt, innovate and position as one of the most fortunate places to live and do business on the planet. This is not by accident but through sound and clear leadership, communication and pragmatic system design.

In a time where we’ve learnt a lot about grit, the 2021 New Zealand CFO Summit will draw on the same factors that led to our successful response to chart a course for a brighter future. On June 22, 2021 we welcome you to be part of the dialogue to realise the realities of the altered world of work and teams, the opportunity to unlock growth and productivity with the experts, influencers and innovators in policy and business. CFOs and leaders in business will gather to reconnect and build confidence with insight and ideas to create a brighter future.
