CDANZ National Symposium 2017

CDANZ National Symposium 2017

Aspirations & Possibility

In partnership with University of Auckland Business School

Auckland / Tues 31 Oct & Wed 1 Nov 2017

Last year we explored "Our Value, Our Voice" - knowing who we are, why we matter and how to articulate our worth to the world. This year we consider our place in a world full of complexity and possibility.

"we are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking up at the stars" Oscar Wilde

  • How do we make our clients aware of the many options that exist when we may know little of them ourselves?
  • How can we empower ourselves, and our clients, to be curious and courageous in the quest for an authentic and aspirational life and career?
  • How do we fight for safe, fair, equitable work opportunities and work places?


CDANZ National Symposium for Research and Leading Practice is our flagship event bringing together practitioners from across New Zealand and ideas from around the globe. This year's event also celebrates the 20th Anniversary of the Career Development Association of New Zealand.
