Take the experience to the next level with this limited seats - half day session

For those wanting more, we have created a cutting edge half day workshop dedicated to discovering what the brand new Health and Safety International Standard: ISO45001:2018 is all about, where it came from and what it is trying to achieve.

Engagement and Leadership are at its very core and we are enviting executive coach, Ted-X speaker trainer and public speaking expert Michael Philpott of Smart & Wise to join HSPNZ founder Matt Jones on this first of its kind ISO45001:2018 Masterclass.


Be prepared to be inspired, refreshed and re-energised to take your new appreciation for health and safety to your place of work.

 A rare opportunity not to be missed

Learning outcomes will include:

  • Foundation understanding of ISO45001:2018

  • Greater confidence in public speaking

  • Key skills in generating engagement and discussion opportunities in the workplace

  • An appreciation for what makes a great leader


We're flipping the table on the traditional conference model by getting to know our speakers before the event.

We are recording interviews with our keynotes, guest speakers and sponsors.

The videos will all be made available here - on the HSPNZ Conference 2018 event page!
