The 3 exciting speakers set to inspire attendees at the first Figure Fest are:

  • Chris McDowall, the co-author of We Are Here: An Atlas of Aotearoa, 2019’s breathtakingly beautiful data visualisation book
  • Anya Satyanand, CEO of the Prince’s Trust and a true champion of rangatahi / youth in Aotearoa.

With a theme of “using data to thrive”, the kaupapa / purpose of this free event is to:

  • fill the audience with inspiration and ideas on how to use data to thrive, and why we should help others to do the same
  • share the kaupapa / purpose of Figure.NZ with people who care about New Zealand
  • give back to Figure.NZ’s supporters
  • launch Māori business and community as areas of focus for Figure.NZ.

Attendees are a dynamic mix of folks from the worlds of business, government, and not-for-profit. Places are limited to 100 and registrations are filling up fast, so register now to avoid missing out.
