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”.
