Guest Lectures

In April, Mr. Maddox Ahuja from Grey Lynn delivered an excellent lecture on the New Zealand Privacy Law. Privacy interests are protected by legislation in many specific areas, and in recent years a general tort of invasion of privacy has developed. Support for the recognition of privacy as a right has been given


by two Supreme Court judges, and in August 2011 the New Zealand Law Commission released the final stage of its Review of the Law of Privacy, throughout which it makes many recommendations of changes to privacy law in New Zealand. Students were able to relate this lecture to their learning in class. Mr. Ahuja encouraged students to ask questions that would facilitate them in doing the assignment.

In May, our Guest Speaker, Mr. Maddox Ahuja, familiarized the students with the New Zealand Legal System. The primary sources of New Zealand law are statutes enacted by the New Zealand Parliament and decisions of the Courts of New Zealand. At a more fundamental level, the law of New Zealand is based on three related principles: parliamentary sovereignty; the rule of law; and the separation of powers. As a former British colony, the New Zealand legal system is heavily based on the English law, and remains similar in many respects. There are also important differences, which reflect the unique legal culture that has developed in New Zealand. Students were fascinated to find out that certain aspects of New Zealand law is not written but it is however understood by all the relevant stakeholders and thus follow it.

Strategic Management Lecture

One of our esteemed Local Advisory Committee (LAC) member and the Chief Executive office (CEO) of Total Networks, Mr. John Sherwood presented a well prepared presentation on the formulation of Strategy and Strategy Management in organisations.

John highlighted how strategic management is critical to the development and expansion of all organizations. It represents the science of crafting and formulating short-term and long-term initiatives directed at optimally achieving organizational objectives.

The lecture was valuable because students were given real-life examples and his experience as a CEO in strategic management. Further, he highlighted that although making good strategy is the major responsibility of an organisation’s owner or CEO, both managers and employees must be involved in strategy formation, implementation and evaluation activities. Students were able to link the lecture to their current learning and have promised to feature their understanding in their assignments.

Student Employment Opportunity

From time to time, college invites prospective employers to educate students on future openings in the New Zealand industry.


Mark Richardson, Managing Director of Sellutions invited our students to express their interest in working at his organisation. Sellutions Limited is committed to promoting a positive and productive work culture that attracts top business professionals. Students can find employment as field runners, kiosk and business sales representative. Successful employment of students from previous batches has encouraged Mr. Richardson to seek further students from ICNZ.

Let it All out Session


Every two months, students and the management participate in a session "Let it All Out". During this session both students and management discuss valuable suggestions and feedback. In this session, one of our Senior Tutor Mr. Nalin Gupta shared an interesting video

titled “Who moved my cheese?”. The video highlighed how individuals need to adapt to their changing environment with change in time. Students were happy to relate to the message received.

Time to Celebrate


One the special occasion of Easter, ICNZ’s Academic Manager, Ms. Vera Barboza shared chocolates with the students, which they delightfully enjoyed.

Birthday Celebrations

There is inside all of you the potential to be whatever you want
to be — all of the energy to do whatever you want to do.

Imagine yourself, as you would like to be, doing what you want
to do, and each day take one step towards your dream.

And though at times it may seem too difficult to continue, hold
on to your dream.

One morning you will awake to find that you are the person you
dreamed of, doing what you wanted to do, simply because you

had the courage to believe in your potential and to hold on to
your dream.

May all your dreams come true.

Happy Birthday!
