Each year Appita holds a New Speaker Competition in conjunction with the Appita Annual Conference. The purpose of the Appita New Speaker Contest is to provide an opportunity for first-time presenters to develop their presentation skills and present in front of a large audience as part of their ongoing career development.

In the lead up to the competition, preliminary finals are held in New Zealand and Australia. Winners from the Australian and New Zealand preliminary finals will advance to the ANZ final which is held in conjunction with the Appita Fibre Value Chain Conference which will be held 1 - 3 December 2020 at the Novotel Rotorua, New Zealand . 

Come and support our new speakers at the 2020 New Speaker Competitions.
