Welcome to Licencing Executives Society (LES) – New Zealand chapter

Hello everyone and welcome to the Licensing Executive Society’s first New Zealand newsletter. We’re back and bolder than ever and ready to deliver an exciting line up of events for 2021.

I am delighted to announce that we have a new NZ regional committee. The team brings a wealth of experience from various disciplines in law, intellectual property protection/enforcement, business development from start-up level to commercial business and professional experience from working in academia, crown research institutes, government and corporate sectors.

Introducing the NZ regional committee:

  • Melissa Wong (Chair), Lincoln Agritech
  • Dr Christine Egan, AJ Park
  • Dr Roslyn Murray, Waikato Link
  • Wilson Huang, Plant & Food Research
  • Katie Wei, AJ Park

You can read more about our committee members here.

We’re working on building events for 2021 and there’s plenty on the horizon with LESANZ’s annual two day conference, indigenous IP workshop and speaker series, workshops on IP valuation, and the IP protection on trade mark and software including AI/machine learning.

We’re here to deliver informative sessions and learning opportunities for all our members and associated networks. See our 2021 event calendar here and as events are resolved, they will be loaded to our formal events calendar where you can book.

If you have specific topics you’d like us to deliver, you can reach out to me at melissa.wong@lincolnagritech.co.nz 

We welcome new members and guests to our events, if you think someone may benefit from a LESANZ membership, you can read more about the rates here.

We look forward to meeting you at our future events.
