Calling New Zealand’s Top 100 Leaders

Calling New Zealand’s Top 100 Leaders

New Zealand Ceo’s to Go Deaf in Silent Leadership Challenge


The National Foundation for the Deaf is calling upon the Top 100 CEO’s and leaders from around New Zealand to take part in this year’s Silent Leadership Challenge on 1 August 2014.

With 34 key influencers registered so far, the challenge requires inspirational participants to undergo three challenging communication tasks in the workplace and one at home, wearing bright yellow hearing protectors to simulate deafness. Participants registered include senior politicians from three parties and leaders from 2 Degrees, Westpac bank, Fairfax Media and ATEED so far.

The Silent Leadership Challenge aims to increase nationwide awareness to the importance of noise-induced hearing loss prevention, and to raise funds for the Foundation’s work and support for those with hearing loss or deafness. The challenges will include communicating and participating in one to one meetings in the workplace and watching television at home whilst wearing the provided ear protectors.

“Hearing impairment affects many New Zealanders, and by getting involved, organisations will be privy to understanding how noise injury can impact their workplace and employees.” says The National Foundation for the Deaf CEO, Louise Carroll, who is also participating.

“Are you an inspirational New Zealand leader? We need you to help us lead urgently-needed social change. Without you, New Zealanders will continue unabated down the slippery slope to reaching the predicted 1:4 or over one million with some type of hearing loss by 2050”.

To take part, leaders need to register online at www.silentleadershipchallenge.com and should endeavour to raise funds by seeking sponsorship donations from people in their professional and social networks.

“The Silent Leadership Challenge participants will be creating a world of difference for the future of New Zealanders”.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
