Why Attend


The financial services and retirement savings industry is undergoing a significant period of change. The 2018 conference programme will allow delegates to learn about global political changes, technological changes and regulatory changes from high profile and quality keynote speakers, whilst learning best practice from existing members.

The national conference is the event of the year for the sector, bringing together financial services business heads and strategy, operations and technology leaders.


The Financial Services Council and Workplace Savings NZ are proud to be supporting Voices of Hope with the annual national conference, Shaping Futures. Voices of Hope is a relatively new charity in New Zealand on a mission to provide hope for those struggling with mental health issues by promoting mental well-being, empowerment and recovery. Voices of Hope was founded in 2014 by Genevieve Mora and Jazz Thornton. Both being mental illness survivors they felt the need to use their past experiences alongside their passion for creating content to provoke and bring change. They do this by creating videos that target mental illness issues as well as writing blog posts on different topics. Since the launch of Voices of Hope, their content has received both national and international recognition and has caught the attention of companies wanting to support their vision.
