Leaders agree to go deaf for day on August 2, 2013

Influential leaders from around New Zealand are going deaf for a day to raise awareness around hearing impairment.

Twenty Aucklanders are among 42 high profile leaders who have signed up for the Silent Leadership Challenge on August 2. 

All participants will tackle three communication challenges in their workplace and one at home while wearing bright yellow hearing protectors to simulate deafness. 

Some of the leaders include Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) chief executive Brett O’Riley, NZ Lotto chief executive Wayne Pickup and Professor Peter Thorne, Professor of Audiology at The School of Population Health, University of Auckland.
