Participation from GIS professionals like you makes the New Zealand Esri User Conference much more than just another technology event. It’s a place to collaborate, connect, and get inspired by the work of your colleagues and peers. We encourage you to share what you know to help GIS professionals of all experience levels better leverage the power of geospatial technology.

Presenting at Conference?

Usually public speaking ranks highly on the list of people's greatest fears so Claire Thurlow spent forty minutes in a webinar running through some tips and tricks about presenting. These tips will hopefully enable you, the presenter, to effectively present your Conference paper with confidence and in a way that your audience will clearly understand. Take some moments to listen to the video recording of this webinar.
