The New Zealand Business Excellence Foundation NZBEF organized the Performance Excellence Conference on 19th and 20th March 2019. The conference was held in the Waipuna Hotel and Conference Centre in Auckland with speakers and participants from various parts of New Zealand and from overseas. The conference promised to be a very exciting meet-up for business excellence professionals and enthusiasts. The New Zealand Defense Force (NZDF) showed particular interest in the conference with a large number of NZDF staff attending the conference.
The participants of the conference were able to learn about global business excellence practices and make sense around how adopting business excellence would help their organisations improve. Speakers from Australia, Canada, Chile, and New Zealand educated the audience about the present state of business excellence in their respective areas of responsibilities and the challenges that organisations are experiencing by ignoring it. The conference was very educational for those that were new to the idea of business excellence.
The conference ended with a clear commitment by the NZBEF and its participants that the focus on excellence needs to be re-energised otherwise NZ Inc would lose its international competitiveness against other countries where business excellence has become the norm. As such the NZBEF is calling for New Zealand organisations to join its foundation with a new website just launched.
