Event Summary

Okta City Tour Auckland will be held on Wednesday, August 17, 2022, in person.

Think about your identity and the future of your business at Okta City Tour Auckland.

Be part of the conversation and see our experts live on stage at Park Hyatt and engage with our fantastic lineup of speakers with an agenda that covers the role of identity in the future of customer experience, privacy, security and environmental change.

Nowadays, identity is entering a new phase. In the era, from "digital transformation (DX)" aiming at the transition to digital, to " digital first " premised on digital. As all businesses shift to AI (artificial intelligence) automation and hybrid clouds, the ideal form of employee and customer identities is changing.

At the Okta City Tour Auckland, we will introduce the voices of industry leaders and customers who actually use Okta in fields such as IT, security, and identity management, and approach the true value of identity in the digital age.

We know that this is a busy occasion, but we look forward to your participation.

10:25 AM - 11:25 AM  | Own your world when you own your identity

“Identity-first” approach to living your best life

World-renowned former All Blacks coach, Sir Graham Henry, and former captain and twice Rugby World Cup champion, Kieran Read, have both played celebrated roles in reshaping the identity of the modern All Blacks.

Kieran was settling into his number 8 role, one that would eventually become legendary, with two World Cup wins, 127 games for his country, and appointment to All Black’s Captain in 2016.  Both have a keen understanding of how owning your identity, and embracing all aspects of who you are, can empower you to write your own legacy.

Sir Graham and Kieran share the stage for a remarkable conversation on how to develop the mental strength and skills needed to perform at your best when the pressure is on.


Sir Graham Henry, Former All Blacks Manager

Q&A with Kieran Read (ONZM), Former All Blacks Captain

11:25 AM - 11:55 AM  | Delivering Business Impact with Customer Identity and access management

When does investing in security give you more than security? Answer: When it is customer identity and access management. 

A modern take on traditional IAM, CIAM goes beyond securing organisations’ customer interactions to give firms the ability to see and understand customer behaviour. This lays the foundation for e-commerce and loyalty programs, and gives companies valuable opportunities to conduct targeted marketing to their diverse customer base. 

Hear Richard Marr, Okta’s Head of CIAM in Asia Pacific, give a round-up of modern digital experiences in APAC, and how technology can enable them. How can enterprises move further with those technologies to set up a Zero Trust Framework?
