MA's 2023 Annual Report

MA's 2023 Annual Report.

2023 saw me complete four years as CEO at the MA and it was the first year since starting that wasn’t disrupted by Covid. It’s amazing how quickly we take for granted having a year without disruption and on reflection it allowed us to plan and implement with confidence – and what a difference that makes! 

What was really noticeable in 2023 was the level of engagement we had with members and the enthusiasm NZ marketers had to learn and network. In 2024 we will be implementing the next stage of development for our digital platform and we believe this will transform the digital and web experience for members. We are also upgrading our training facilities at the MA head office and I believe we will arguably have one of the most advanced training rooms in NZ including the ability to live stream around NZ.
