Quick ITP update and upcoming events

(From Monday) What an exciting week we've just had, with the 123Tech digital challenge national finals event broadcast live to schools, industry folks, students and the public across New Zealand.

We were excited to recognise the national winners during the event, from Arahoe School, Auroa School and Palmerston North Girls High School, while also celebrating regional success from across New Zealand. We were also pleased to recognise recently retired teacher Margot Phillipps for her massive contribution over many years.

And just a heads-up - we're taking ITx on the road next year, with Innovation Day and related events happening across all 8 of our home cities, plus potentially one or two other places as well. 2021 is going to be a great year!

(From Monday) Last week ITP President Mike Dennehy completed his term as ITP President. It's been a massive pleasure working with Mike over the last 6 years (the most recent 4 years with him as President) and he's made a huge contribution.

As one era concludes another begins, with Anthony Dowling and Robyn Kamira appointed to the President and Deputy President roles respectively.

Also, check out last week's UFB and the Future of Fibre webinar on the ITP Video Library, now with closed captions, and look out for the final of the 123Tech in-school challenge this week, broadcast live at 2pm Thursday!

[From Monday] We held an excellent 60th anniversary celebration event in Dunedin last week - so good to see our southern community come together with almost 100 in attendance and a real mix of the key drivers of tech in the city, past and present.

This week's another busy one, with ITP's National Board meeting on Wednesday to talk through strategy and planning for 2021, subsidiary company Escrow NZ's board meeting on Tuesday, and heaps of other activities on this week.

And don't miss this week's Thursday Live Webinar, featuring Chorus' head of network strategy Kurt Rodgers talking through UFB, HyperFibre, and what's next for NZ's fibre infrastructure.
