Congress venue: Owen G Glenn Building

Last week was a very special week for us, non-stop events for five days!, or as Dr. Robin Mann the congress chairman call it a “boot camp”.

It started with the pre-congress workshop on Monday, there were very interesting workshops such as the Benchmarking for Best Practices workshop. Next day was the Global Benchmarking Network annual general meeting followed by the Welcome Reception at Waipapa Marae in University of Auckland in the afternoon.

The congress sessions started on the 5th, it was an amazing event, more than 190 presentations in 5 parallel sessions presented by speakers from more than 25 countries, despite that New Zealand is “far, far away” there were many international speakers and delegates, many of them travelled more than 10,000 km to attend the congress.

The congress social functions were an opportunity to see some of New Zealand icons such as Auckland harbour during the networking evening at Maritime Museum and Eden Park where the congress dinner and awards evening was held.

To see the story of the congress from delegates perspective via twitter follow this topic in storify to see what the delegates tweeted about the congress from beginning till end.

Check our blog regularly because next time I will write about the 1st International Best Practice Competition and the 1st Global Benchmarking Award.
