An exciting final programme and speaker line-up has been announced for Project15 which takes place on April 16 and 17, 2015 at AUT University.
The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Taking New Zealand Innovation Global’ and the roster of international and domestic speakers will explore the endless opportunities for New Zealand innovation on a world-wide stage.
The line-up includes a host of familiar local faces including former Black Cap and founder of Triumph & Disaster, Dion Nash; Malcolm Rands of Ecostore and Vaughn Rowsell of Vend who will join an array of internationally recognised and celebrated speakers, including James Whittaker of Microsoft and Australian start-up wizard Steve Sammartino.
Speakers will tackle a broad array of topics including entrepreneurship, creativity, psychology, technology, commercialisation and leadership.
Michelle Dickinson, a.k.a. Nanogirl, will also be on hand as master of ceremonies for what will be the year’s most innovative thought leadership event.
Project15 features one and a half days of speaker sessions and tailored seminars - the conference will also form part of an extended series of activities during 2015 which includes regular Project Connect networking events.
Project15 is a collaboration between founding partners AUT University, The US Embassy and Social Media New Zealand.
