About TechTALK:

TechTALK’s mission is to help to close the STEAM skills shortage gap! We do this through various activities, including planning tech-centric events with multiple speakers followed by networking sessions, running industrial workshops, and collaborating with other organisations to enhance learning and development. We want to increase the technical knowledge level of everyone in New Zealand and all around the world.

At this event, we are partnering with The Centre for Automation and Robotic Engineering Science, UOA, to take the TechTALK events to the next level, co-organising a Techweek event and focusing on AI, robotics, automation and how technology will affect the future of work and will help growth, resilience and sustainability.
