Member Briefings

We can’t ignore change, but we can prepare for it. Let’s take a look at what’s ahead.

At Business Central we are constantly compiling the most important data and changes for business, such as new legislation, economic and performance indicators for your region, as well as national and international trends impacting business locally.

Twice a year, we run our Member Briefing sessions to share a summary of these insights with you, our network, to ensure you are well informed on the topics most relevant to you and your business so you can stay agile.

The next Member Briefing for your region is on it's way, and as a Business Central Member, we’re inviting you to come along.

We’ll be joined by Massey University, who will be presenting on ‘The Future of Work’, and how technological advancements continue to intensify competitive pressures in all kinds of industries to the point where no business is immune. We’ll also be addressing what’s involved with the new Domestic Violence Bill, and how to make sure your workplace is compliant.

In addition, the Briefings will reflect on what’s impacted business historically and review recent employment and WorkSafe cases – so you can learn from those who learnt the hard way.

Presentation topics will include:

  • Upcoming legislative changes
  • Recent employment cases
  • Recent health and safety investigations
  • Economic highlights
  • Regional developments
  • Export Update
  • Business Central & BusinessNZ submissions summary


For a forecast of all things set to affect business over the next 6 months, don’t miss this important, free, and members-only briefing.
