May events to feature out-of-the-box speakers

In May, IPANZ has sought speakers from outside of core government to provide their insight on how we interact with the public.

Judge Peter Boshier, the Chief Ombudsman, looks at the public sector’s response to Official Information Act requests (Wellington, 4 May); David Rutherford, the Human Rights Chief Commissioner, will discuss how human rights conventions affect the public service (Wellington, 31 May); and the Salvation Army will present key findings from its State of the Nation report on social wellbeing indicators (Auckland, 25 May).
