That's a wrap
 Generations Digital Conference now available on demand

Kia Ora
Dear Contact

The Generations Digital Conference was an absolute standout week with 1553 viewers engaging in industry leading content, valuable expert insights, shared wisdom, and healthy political debate from 120 speakers  participating in 35 sessions over three action packed days.  It is hard to believe the conference is all over, after so many ups, downs, changes of dates and formats but the highlights and positive feedback keep rolling in. 
Conference Highlights and FSC on Demand
From buying a news media company for $1 to using swiss cheese to save the country from the spread of a pandemic to timely advice about the importance of mental wellbeing, our closing keynote speakers ended the daily main plenary discussions with inspirational stories of their journey to success.   

The opportunity to hear Sinead Boucher CEO, Stuff Ltd, Dr. Siouxsie Wiles, and mindfulness ambassador Jase Te Patu speak on the Generations stage was a privilege. Thei insights were truly thought provoking and challenge us all to think outside the box and find our own paths to success.

Our Main Plenary political speakers made the most of their  opportunity to be heard pre-election, presenting their policies, opinions and arguments. The Generations line up included Hon Kris Faafoi, Hon Grant Robertson, Andrew Bayly, Paul Goldsmith, James Shaw and Emma Mellow who all presented a cross section of policies that are affecting the future of the sector.

Industry figureheads Toby Fiennes, Head of Financial System Policy and Analysis for the Reserve Bank and FMA CEO, Rob Everett detailed insights into the regulatory changes going forward. While our expert panels got to the heart of our conference themes of guardianship, sustainability and wellbeing with a focus on retirement and establishing a strong economy for future generations.

Our breakfast breakouts and sundowner session truly represented all sections of the sector, providing high quality, curated content covering insurance, investment, FinTech, superannuation, LADUCA, professional advice, trustees and supervisors, workplace savings and looking ahead to providing a sustainable industry for future generations.

Both Tech Alley and Pitch Perfect profiled the latest Kiwi FinTech innovations. It was fantastic to hear about the ground-breaking platforms and how they will impact the future of the sector.  Congratulations to Invsta and Taxoshi who were voted winners of Pitch Perfect 2020.

We have captured all 35 sessions and these are now available to view on demand for those that registered for the conference. If you missed these sessions and are interested in viewing them again, feel free to dip in via the Virtual Attendee Hub

Launch of the Financial Resilience Index 3
On Day 3 of Generations, FSC CEO Richard Klipin launched the Financial Resilience Index 3, yet another conference highlight.

The research shows that despite the last six months being one of the most challenging periods in recent history, New Zealanders have remained remarkably resilient and confident when it comes to financial matters.

The Financial Resilience Index is a major tracking survey of New Zealanders’ views on five key financial resilience indicators; financial confidence, literacy and preparedness, job security and wellbeing.

Delegate Feedback
A taste of some of the glowing feedback the conference has received:
“ The digital option was fantastic. I really hope this is continued in future years. Normally having 3 days out of the office is disruptive to work, so being able to pick and choose what I watch while answering the odd email was great. Also, the ability to watch recordings of sessions meant that I could always catch up on a session that was on at the same time.

"The overarching theme - kaitiakitanga - speaks volumes about our industry. So important to all Kiwis"

"Outstanding topics, professionally ran, something for everyone."

"Wow I have not been so entranced with a session like that in a long time. Who would have thought Politics could be so interesting.

"Amazing speakers, content  and format – just spot on."

"A plethora of topics, amazing presenters and overall a very successful event."
"Loved the honesty across a couple of the panel discussions and the learnings for all of us.   
Conference with a cause
And finally, most of you would have viewed the day 2 session with our conference charity partner, Voices of Hope. The work that they do is so vital to breaking the stigma around mental illness and helping those that suffer from it. We are sure that you will agree that their work is incredibly important and we are proud to be able to support them during such a tough year. Please do take a look at their website and donation page.
Last chance to give us feedback
If you joined the conference, please take the time to complete our survey and share your experience with us. This will only take a few minutes to complete and will close tomorrow evening.
Thank you to all the sponsors that made the conference possible
