The  Project Connect Event Series is a collaboration between AUT, Wynyard Innovation Neighbourhood and the US Embassy of New Zealand, bringing together the respective successes of AUT’s  Project Connect event programme and Wynyard Innovation Neighbourhood’s_
_WINTalk events.

The partnership represents over six years of combined experience, goodwill, market presence, and thought leadership; as well as the ability to attract top, international, subject matter experts to New Zealand for keynote, masterclass and exclusive executive briefings.

Equal parts inspiration and enlightenment,  Project Connect events offer a rare chance to meet the global change agents that are spearheading the strategic, creative and commercial implementation of digital technologies and business innovation.

At each event, attendees will gain a better understanding of today's opportunities and tomorrow's possibilities, as well as crucial insights into new business ideas, models and strategies. They will meet future business partners, collaborators and co-conspirators and be exposed to ideas that will re-invent their approach to… everything.
