To celebrate Asia Savvy’s 10-year anniversary, New Zealand Asia Institute (NZAI) have ‘savvied-up’ with two new offerings:

The conference will also:

  • explore the relevance of cross-cultural differences and how they impact our future global careers
  • identify the key skills needed to succeed in this global and inter-connected world


Students will be able to engage directly with experts working across different cultures and share their valuable experiences.

  • Learn about the personal skills, work habits and strategies that have helped our speakers succeed internationally.
  • And what these cross-cultural experts wished they had known earlier in their journeys

Your chance to speak at the 2020 Asia Savvy Conference

ASIASAVVYx is a new opportunity for a limited number of students to give a short Ted-style talk (8-10 minutes) at the conference on a topic on your own experience of cross-cultural interaction.

This could include situations such as during local/international work experience; being part of a diverse term such a as a club or travelling.

This would be a great opportunity for SEA CAPE programme alumni to share their experience(s)
