Studio Managers Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Are you a senior manager or owner of a NZ game studio? This is your chance to share knowledge, experience and connections with your peers in a supportive, private environment. 

Facilitated by NZGDA Board members, come prepared for a group discussion rather than presentation. 

Some of the discussion topics you have suggested we discuss include:
  • Meet the new NZGDA chairperson and board
  • Recruiting and developing talent
  • Working with Immigration NZ. War stories and tips
  • GDC 2018. Would you partner with NZGDA to run a recruitment campaign Dec-Feb and a recruitment and biz-dev event at GDC 2018? 
  • Are you doing business in China? Chinese publishers like Tencent are interested in NZ.
  • Government relations update. The NZ Film Commission and some political parties are investigating support for the games industry.

This is an invite-only workshop for established games businesses. However, if you run a start-up games studio and would like to upskill email stephen@ingame.co.nz to ask.

Please RSVP to stephen@ingame.co.nz. 1 or 2 other senior business staff from your studios are welcome to attend as well.
