Quick ITP update and upcoming events
[From Wednesday] For much of NZ it's a huge relief to be dropping back to Level 3 today. And for those in Auckland and Northland - you'll be out in no time and thanks for everything you're doing to keep NZ safe. We know it isn't easy.
This week we've released a whole heap of ITx Innovation Day presentation videos on the ITP member video library. If you're a member, check them out for free - there are some absolute doozies there.
Also, next week we kick off the ITP Thursday Live Webinars again, starting with the Ministry of Health's Shayne Hunter talking about the upcoming massive health reforms and tech's role in ensuring a world-leading health system into the future.
