About the conference

We are delighted to announce the 2018 Independent Schools of New Zealand Conference. Join us at the Grand Millennium, Auckland on Friday 22 June to Saturday 23 June.

The Conference programme has been designed to explore the changing face of leadership with reference to the education sector and with specific attention to leadership in the age of disruption.

- Digital disruption in the school sector                                               
- An overview of economic drivers for the future
