Abstract: As has been a tradition since all the way back to 2016, the Chair of the NZIF conference committee is given the undoubted honour of writing ‘The last word’ following it. Unaccustomed to this type of writing, I thought it would be appropriate to use this opportunity to reflect on some of the insights I learned from the speakers and delegates at this year’s conference. I am delighted to say that the 2017 conference was a resounding success. This event was the culmination of a substantial effort by a wide range of people and having it behind us feels like a significant weight off our collective shoulders. The speakers were excellent, the field trip ran smoothly, and the beers were served cold. In my opinion, the diversity of the conference programme was its most appealing feature.
