Don’t miss this opportunity to elect your 2018 local committee* and meet Scott Campbell of Campbell Squared, who scooped three PRINZ Awards in 2017 including PR Consultancy of the Year.

*Please note the PRINZ Southern AGM will take place prior to this event. If you are attending both the AGM and this event, please register for both events.

Hear first hand about their journey to develop a programme that reconnected Te Wairoa whānau with their iwi, ensuring their Treaty settlement was signed with the support of a significant number of engaged stakeholders.

The campaign – Now is the time! Building a better future for our whānau – was described by their clients as a major factor in the overwhelming success of their Treaty settlement journey “…teaching us to move beyond our cultural constraints.”

The campaign also won the new PRINZ Awards category “Communicating in Diversity”. PRINZ Awards Chief Judge, Lisa Finucane (FPRINZ) described it as “an excellent campaign [that] demonstrates the way ethical public relations can be used to engage communities and decision makers... a clear two-way flow of information, reaching people and groups that may have been missed in the past, and helped achieve an outcome with real benefits to stakeholders.”

This event is kindly hosted by Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu and Ngāi Tahu Tourism.
