TPM: TCC Workshops information and participants

The workshops were hosted online via Zoom on the afternoon of 6 October. These were led by independent facilitator John Hancock, in one ‘Zoom room’ alongside experts from Transpower Murray Henderson (Principal Markets Advisor) and Conrad Edwards (Senior Strategy Advisor). Members of the TPM Development project team viewed the workshops from another location but did not participate in the workshops.

Invited guests, attending from their own locations, had the opportunity to put their ideas and questions forward for discussion and debate. These people represented not just their own organisation but others that might have similar responses to the TCC, and we encourage those not invited to contact a relevant attendee in the list below to discuss your thoughts and ideas should you so wish.

The invited attendees are listed below. Those in italics were intending to participate, but unfortunately were unavailable on the day.
