Submissions should be short, and are due no later than 1 November 2019. International consultant, Johnathan Olsberg, will be attending the SPADA conference and the Facilitation Group aims to have read and summarised all submissions pre-conference in order to benefit from his expert views. The Facilitation Group says the written submissions will assist it with specific and practical initiatives to achieve its vision and purpose, and to demonstrate to the Government and the public the huge value the sector has to New Zealand in reflecting our culture, growing our economy and providing many New Zealanders with fulfilling and well paid careers. Make sure you have your say!
