See You At ITx With NZ Rise

We're sure you know that snappily named Institute of IT Professionals (henceforth for ever known as IITP) and their tech industry pals have bandied together to put on New Zealand's largest ever tech focussed conference, ITx ( It's actually a series of conferences all being held at the same time (Monday 11th - Wednesday 13th July) and in the same venue (TSB Bank Arena and Shed 6 complex, Wellington) ... a fantastic idea and one I (Mike) have been long advocating for (who remembers my talk of the "All of NZ tech Christmas Meeting"?)

One of the parties involved is the most excellent NZ Rise (, the tech industry body that exists to represent the interests of NZ-owned digital technology businesses - these are our people representing us and not the overseas owned companies, yay!

Now, NZ Rise approached us to see if we'd like to record sessions with those speakers they have in their stream ... and we said, "Hell YES!"

Check out the current NZ Rise speaker line-up [full ITx speaker details] for Monday 11th July, and make sure you listen into our NZ Rise ITx special very soon after!
