Techweek19

A festival of innovation that's good for the world.

Official partner of Techweek19

20-26 May | New Zealand

New Zealand’s technology and innovation sectors are growing rapidly and changing the way we work, live and play. Technology now touches almost every aspect of our day-to-day lives and is shaping our communities by influencing how we communicate, travel and utilise our amenities.
 

Our purpose – make everyday better – is all about enhancing lives through our work. Harnessing the potential of new technology is vital to us doing that. Beca’s Beacon System app won the 2018 Most Innovative Hi-Tech Service category at the NZ Hi-Tech Awards, recognising our team’s significant commitment to innovation. It's a great example of the way we blend traditional technical and digital consulting to make everyday better for our clients and communities.

Techweek provides a week-long opportunity to connect into some of the incredible innovation happening in New Zealand. Teams from across our regional offices will be showcasing how harnassing the potential of new technology and designing digital transformation is key to inspiring the innovative minds in New Zealand.

Innovation – Digitisation – Disruption – Pragmatism – Tech Myth Busting

Tuesday, 21 May 8- 10am Beca House, Auckland

Techweek’s theme of ‘innovation that’s good for the world’ is a noble cause and one that aligns closely to Beca’s purpose: Make everyday better. But what does innovation mean in the context of accelerating global disruption based on innovation, technology platform, brand, design and business model and not lose sight of the fact that it has always been for the betterment and evolution of the human experience? Join Beca’s Thomas Hyde as he discusses the pace of the current technical revolution while pointing to the past and the place for pragmatism and common sense in a changing world.

Making the Future Less Scary: The velocity of innovation today is unparalleled in history. We are rapidly exposed to new technologies, often hyped beyond tangible application. Join Savannah Peterson direct from the USA for a discussion separating future tech myths from those that will make your service/product more user friendly.

Beca is delighted to invite you to a 2-hour session of informative presentations and discussions about a pragmatic and tech myth-busting world where innovation is good for your business – and the world.

 All ticket proceeds will be donated to Beca's charity partners. Book your tickets today, click here
