Emerging Talent Network 


The Emerging Talent (ET) Network has been established by Infrastructure NZ to develop the next generation of infrastructure leaders. The ET Network facilitates cross-sector networking opportunities for young leaders under the age of 35, provides practical career development advice, and fosters a greater understanding of the wider infrastructure landscape. 


ET Network's objectives

  • Nurture emerging talent – Provide an opportunity for young infrastructure professionals under the age of 35 years to meet and learn from experienced practitioners and develop long standing professional networks across the infrastructure industry.
  • A forum for discussion – Encourage, and provide a forum for constructive discussion around infrastructure challenges facing New Zealand, as well as international trends emerging in infrastructure.
  • Shine a light on infrastructure – Provide young professionals both within and outside ETN an insight into the world of infrastructure, including the various professions involved, the type of work available, and job market characteristics.
  • A voice for young professionals in infrastructure – Provide a medium for young professionals within the organisation to articulate their thoughts on particular topics to the wider industry, under the auspices of Infrastructure NZ
  • Grow the network – Increase the number of young professionals within the infrastructure sector

    This year ET is holding a series of close-knit interactive sessions with industry leaders exclusively for our members. We call it ‘The Inner Circle’.

    An industry expert will provide you with coffee from 8am-9am and lead a discussion on a hot infrastructure topic in their boardroom. Spaces are limited to 8 people so you'll need to be quick to snap up your place at the table. Our vision is that you will participate as well as listen. Bring your questions and opinions along, find out about the experts, and what they are leading in their sector. 

    We will run 4-6 of these sessions this year – topic and speaker suggestions are most welcome. One representative per organisation at each session.

    Off the back of a successful event in May where we heard from two leaders in sustainability, we’re back with our third event with Adrienne Young-Cooper, Chair of Housing New Zealand and Panuku Development Auckland.
