Silent Leadership Challenge 2015 coming soon!

April 10, 2015

The Silent Leadership Challenge is coming soon…please save this date in your diary - Friday August 7 2015. An amazing event that every leader should be involved in. For further information call 0800 867 446 or click here.

You'll undertake 4 communication challenges while wearing hearing protectors to simulate deafness - and experience something of the frustration and isolation that's a reality for the 700,000+ New Zealanders, or 1 in 6 of us, with some type of hearing loss.

This great fundraising event is your opportunity to sustain the Foundation's efforts in vital advocacy, prevention and support work.
