This year our conference will take place across three days at Te Papa Tongarewa the Museum of New Zealand (Face-to-Face Conference ONLY), located near the heart of Wellington at the edge of the capital’s stunning harbour.


Our theme, “Changing Management Values and Practices for a Sustainable Future”, speaks to the fundamental shifts occurring in and required of management and organisations today, as they seek a sustainable future and to adapt to the challenges of rapidly changing business environments. We invite you to contribute to the conference by providing new insights that address the evolving needs of different stakeholders, as well as incorporate and learn from a broader set of values and practices.


On behalf of ANZAM and the Wellington School of Business & Government, we invite you to join us in generating novel perspectives, promoting innovative management scholarship and
