Poster Presentation, Canterbury Earthquakes Symposium, University of Canterbury, November 2018.



The 2010-11 Canterbury earthquakes challenged organisations to adapt and innovate in the face of extreme disruption and uncertainty. It was a steep learning curve for many organisations.

The Resilient Organisations research group has followed Canterbury organisations over the past six years to capture the rich and varied lessons learnt so that organisations across New Zealand are better prepared for the next event.

The lessons have been translated into a wide range of tools and resources to help organisations and communities become future ready.  The poster highlights a snapshot of how the devastating impacts of the Canterbury earthquakes have been turned into positive resilience building opportunities.
