About this event

This Forum for senior local government leaders runs concurrently with the PwC Chief Executive Forum and includes a shared session to maximise networking at the senior level. The focus will be on regional partnerships, managing era-scale change, and professional development.

This event is designed for senior leaders in the sector who aspire to either move into a more senior executive role, or a chief executive role. This also may be suitable for leaders or managers outside T2 and T3 in larger councils.

This Forum is being held on the same day as at the Taituarā Gala Dinner, our annual event to celebrate the people and the mahi that contribute to the success of our sector
