Conference website

Save this page and check it regularly - it’s a work in progress, but we'll add more details when we have more information to share.

 

Theme
In case you missed our last email, the theme is Future Focus. We’re looking at key skills in the technical communication industry, what’s changing, and ways we can adapt to stay relevant, valuable and needed, taking us confidently into the future.

We’re busy confirming an exciting lineup of speakers, who’ll cover: 

  • plain language 
  • the art of clear, technical storytelling 
  • digital accessibility – writing accessible content, plus guidelines and standards 
  • the technical communicator brand – advocacy, lifting your personal profile, and selling yourself and your value 
  • digital literacy – colours and fonts. 

We’re working on finding the right speakers for a couple more topics.

Wondering what kind of tech-commy-goodness goes down at a TechCommNZ conference? Here’s a summary of our last one: 

Wrapping up (Re)Connect – Conference 2022 

(Re)Connect was a ‘lite’ conference after many stops and starts, thanks to COVID-19. This year will be a full conference – bigger and better. 

 

We’ll see you there!
