Kia ora,

It’s with a heavy heart that we must let you know that, this week, we have made the decision to wrap up Access Granted NZ.

For the last six years the Access Granted podcast, along with its surrounding events, have been a labour of love, driven by our personal passion and created around our busy professional lives. The incredible people we have met and interacted with along the way has been a real joy. We are really proud of what we have created and have enjoyed sharing it with the world, however changing personal circumstances in recent times mean that it is no longer feasible for us to continue to commit the time and resource required to keep it going.

#WellyTech 2019 - CANCELLED

As a result, this does mean we will not be continuing with the #WellyTech event this year. Although support from the community has been encouraging, the time and resource required to put this together is also more than we can currently commit. For those who have already purchased a ticket – thank you! – you can expect an official notice from the ticketing agency shortly confirming your full refund. To our sponsors and partners, thank you for your support also. We know this is a highly anticipated event for many and we’re sorry to let you down.

Although #WellyTech will not go ahead, we will host a casual “Last Call” to gather one last time before the end of the year. Please keep an eye out for details of this coming soon.

For the podcast, we will continue to release the content we have already recorded through to the end of the year. Beyond this, we will retain the website and content online to keep the memory alive.

Again, we are really appreciative of the support and encouragement we have had from you all over the last six years.
