I am delighted to present you with the brochure for our 2018 conference. As you can see, our conference this year will be from Saturday 1 September to Monday 3 September, back in the glorious surrounds of Queenstown, New Zealand.
Our keynote speaker this year will be Lord Mance, until very recently the Deputy President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom. He will be joined by other senior members of the judiciary from England, Australia and New Zealand, including Lady Arden of the Court of Appeal of England and Wales, Ward CJ in Eq of the Supreme Court of New South Wales, and Glazebrook J of the Supreme Court of New Zealand.
We will also hear from leading industry figures from Australia and New Zealand, including David McLean, the Chief Executive of Westpac New Zealand, and Matt Whineray, the Acting Chief Executive Officer of Guardians of New Zealand Superannuation. Other speakers from industry and the legal profession will also share their knowledge and insights on key issues that are or will be affecting the banking and financial services industry in Australia and New Zealand.
Our Conference Planning Committee has again put together a wonderful program, and I am confident that our 2018 conference will be a tremendous success. I look forward to seeing you all in Queenstown.
