Unplugged 2016

Here’s what people said after Unplugged 2016:

“Just a quick e mail to say a big Thank You to you and the ComplyWith team for an awesome session yesterday!

Great sessions, engaging, relevant and very timely topics!”

“The Health and Safety sessions were brilliant and super helpful and the Trigger Cards are such a brilliant idea!”

“Thanks for a great conference! I learnt heaps and also met some interesting people.”

See the Unplugged 2016 wrap video here

Health and safety was the theme of last year’s Unplugged, and it's back on the agenda this year.

Feedback from last year’s Unplugged suggested that some help on getting better-buy in to compliance would be very useful – so we have sourced one of Australasia’s leading experts on the topic of getting buy-in for you. Dr Bob Murray will help us all ‘pump up the volume’ on compliance (and on other stuff that matters to you!). 

Come to Unplugged 2017 to: 

About how to get better buy-in from others into the compliance work you do. And the key compliance issues arising from the H&S law changes one year on.

With people who share a common interest in legal risk from a range of NZ-wide organisations – a fantastic networking opportunity.

Hear from members of the ComplyWith community presenting their stories and contributing to the open-mic panel session.

3.5 CPD hours + be the first to receive our awesome new Trigger Cards (& grab some more Health and Safety cards)

I believe that most people in business want to do the right thing. Most breaches of the law are the result of business people flying blind, not properly understanding what the law requires. We are dedicated to changing that for good.
