BuildUP24

CONFERENCE | Tāmaki Makaurau | Auckland CBD

The NZ Institute of Building’s annual conference brings together a broad cross-section of Institute members.  The conference is an opportunity to focus on both big-picture strategic issues and dive deeply into practical solutions, tricks, tips, and lessons learned.

 

THE FOCUS

PEOPLE, PERFORMANCE + PRODUCTIVITY

  • The conference focuses on 3Ps:
    • People – our ‘next generation’ of workers and how we communicate, prepare, and respond to their needs,
    • Performance – how we use sporting-based learning to prepare our people for better, more, higher, and greater results,
    • Productivity – delivering more while using less by tapping into smart tools, products, and services.
