Last year’s theme of the “Changing Nature of Intelligence: Diverse People, Diverse Practice” was especially insightful and beneficial for our intelligence community in New Zealand. This year we are taking that work further. We will examine the role of intelligence in our wider risk landscape, as well as overlaying the tragic and horrific events of 15 March to look at “Intelligence Practitioners in a Changed New Zealand – Adapting to New Hazards and Risks”.
We have some great speakers coming along to share their thoughts and wisdom with thought provoking insights on how the wider Intelligence Community came together following 15 March, what other threats and risks intelligence practitioners should be considering, and how we can adapt for the future. We have some great sponsors supporting our event, and we look forward to seeing you there to catch up with old friends, meet new people and build your network.
The NZIIP Awards are back for another year as we recognise the efforts of the intelligence community in the ever evolving and challenging environment we work in. Do you know someone who has done great work in the intelligence community this year that should be recognised? If so, then get your nominations in soon so that we can all celebrate the successes (even if we can’t talk about them). More information on the award categories and the nomination process can be found on the Awards page.
The NZIIP Intelligence Community Awards will be at the Boatshed on the Wellington waterfront on the evening of 2 October 2019. We’re looking forward to seeing you and recognising the skills and talent of our workforce.
