What we’re about
Mar 2023 - Hi! I'm Mike and I've inherited this group from the previous organisers. I'm keen to restart and reinvigorate this group as a place for IT Architects to meet, trade ideas, mentor and network. But I need your help! I'm looking for your support and assistance to help with the running of the group, offer to share your knowledge with others, provide venues for us as a way to promote your organisation, and anything and everything else. Or to simply come to our events and show your support that way! Come chat to me at our next event or give me a yell in meetup or LinkedIn chat.
The Wellington Architects Forum is a community for all IT professionals who either have 'architect' in their job title or practise architecture in their day-to-day jobs (which really is nearly all of us). Its goal is to provide a community support network for architecture practitioners of all specialties and skill levels, and networking opportunities for career growth.
As the name suggests we are Wellington based, our members practice all forms of architecture and many of our members are from wider New Zealand (and beyond).
We are active on LinkedIn and Meetup, search for the "Wellington Architects Forum" on either platform or go to

- A Consultant-, a Supplier- and an in-house Architect walk into an office...Z Energy Corporate Office, Wellington
Are you considering a new role, or wondering if the grass is greener over the fence? Want some insights into how others in the IT and Architect ecosystem work? Then this talk is for you.
Mike Gilbert ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/mrgilbe1/ ) has had a diverse career, in various roles as consultant, contractor, supplier-based Architect and in-house Architect. Each one brings with it different advantages, pain points and challenges. What is each role like? What suits your personality best?
Mike dislikes boring monotone lectures almost as much as writing about himself in the third person, so come along prepared for a seminar style discussion. Bring your perspectives on your current and past roles and what advice YOU would give fellow IT professionals in different roles and places.
Everyone is welcome - if you are in an IT/Digital role or considering one, you do architecture and you should come along and meet us. This talk will be particularly useful for folks considering an Architect role or want to know what Architects do.
