Miriama Kamo to headline NZIEC 2018
ENZ is delighted to advise that award-winning journalist Miriama Kamo is returning to emcee NZIEC for the third consecutive year.
Miriama will preside over the 27th New Zealand International Education Conference and Expo to be held at Te Papa in Wellington on Thursday 9 and Friday 10 August.
“The NZIEC conference is always a calendar highlight,” says Miriama.
“It’s a conference that provides learning and networking opportunities – and a lot of fun. I’m so looking forward to seeing everyone again this year.
“I really enjoy NZIEC conferences. With over 600 delegates, you’d think it could feel impersonal but somehow this crowd pulls off the personal with aplomb.
“Always inspiring, always educative, always fun.”
If you didn’t attend conference last year, you’ll likely recognise Miriama from her role presenting TVNZ 1’s flagship current affairs programme Sunday. She also co-presents current affairs programme Marae, is a regular 1NEWS newsreader and is the host on TVNZ 1’s new lifestyle programme, Kiwi Living.
As a reporter for Sunday, Miriama won the prestigious Best Current Affairs Reporter gong at the Qantas Media Awards in 2005 for her investigation into alleged abuses at Porirua Hospital in the 1960s and 70s. She has also spent six years fronting TVNZ 2’s current affairs show 20/20.
Miriama emceed the 2016 and 2017 conferences in Auckland, and we’re delighted to be able to welcome her to the ‘World’s Coolest Little Capital’ later this year as we explore the theme of Inspiring Global Citizens.
With just over a hundred sleeps to go, we’re working hard behind the scenes to deliver a fantastic NZIEC for the industry.
After being inundated with breakout presentation submissions, we’re in the final stages of confirming the conference programme and will be in touch with submitters over the coming weeks to advise them of the outcome of their submissions.
With breakout streams focused on global citizenship, student experience and wellbeing, digital innovation, markets and products, sharing our stories and contribution to New Zealand, the programme will highlight the diversity and expertise of New Zealand’s vibrant international education industry.
We’re also planning some changes to the conference format – stay tuned to e-news for updates on all our conference announcements.
