ONLINE EVENT | CPP Connect Series 2024


The CPP Community brings together leaders in practice, predominantly from small and medium-sized firms, to share best practice, pose tough questions, create connections, and solve problems together, with an emphasis on group discussion and interaction between members.

These complimentary workshops are exclusive to NZ members who hold a Certificate of Public Practice and build on the foundational competencies required to operate a successful modern practice, as covered within the Public Practice Program.

Each “Connect” session is held as an online workshop. We select a topic that is deemed timely and relevant based on member feedback from practices across all regions, bring in subject matter experts to share their experience, and then allow members plenty of time to workshop the topic with other practice leaders from across the country in virtual breakout rooms.

We are holding three workshops throughout 2024. Each session is 90 minutes in duration and provides up to 1.5 hours of CPD.

Session 1: Wednesday 8th May | Embracing Change and creating efficiencies for the future
Session 2: Wednesday 14th August | People - Why they are important
Session 3: Wednesday 30 October | How to keep your practice safe: Managing Risk
