ITC brings Christmas cheer to 7 charities

Posted on 17/12/2019 by

ITC has donated over $4,000 to charities to help those in need this Christmas.

For many people, Christmas is a wonderful time of year – a time of family, friends, food, and celebration.

But, for many others, Christmas can be a challenging time. At Christmas – more than ever – it’s important to give back to the community and help those in need.

This year, ITC has spread Christmas cheer to 7 charities.

ITC chief executive Claire Huxley has kindly donated to each of the below donations ($4,250 in total). 

  • Auckland City Mission
  • Christmas Box
  • The Salvation Army
  • Age Concern
  • Variety Children
  • SPCA
  • Alzheimer’s New Zealand

A representative from The Salvation Army reached out to Claire and ITC to say thank you for the donation.

“Thank you so much for your very kind and generous donation to our Christmas Appeal this week. Your generosity to The Salvation Army has been so gratefully received. It is very much appreciated and contributes significantly to our work of helping people in need, especially at this time of year.”

If you would like to donate to a charity before Christmas, it’s not too late! There are several deserving charities that could use some extra support – and every dollar counts.

On that festive note, the ITC blog will be taking a break until the 7th of January. Have a wonderful festive season, look after each other and keep safe!

– The ITC team :)

Qantas staff inspired and energised after ITC PD day

Posted on 20/08/2019 by

ITC recently hosted a Professional Development day for Qantas call centre staff.

One little-known fact about ITC is that we run professional development days with the likes of Explore Group NZ and Qantas.

Recently, staff from the Qantas call centre came into ITC for a fun day of training and team bonding.

The workshop was led by Daniel Maine, whose main role is short course tutor and marketing support. 

Daniel is known for his enthusiasm, energy, and awesome sense of humour – and this workshop certainly ticked all of those boxes.

ITC helps NZ dance group attend global dance competition

ITC has a long, proud history of supporting community organisations. From raising money for various charities to donating Christmas gifts to the Auckland City Mission, the College supports a wide variety of worthy organisations every year.

So, it’s no surprise that when ITC chief executive Claire Huxley came across a young dance group fundraising to attend a global competition in Hawaii, she wanted to help.

Meet the ITC graduate making headlines

Posted on 09/04/2019 by

ITC graduate Leo Seuula recently appeared on Seven Sharp and the New Zealand Herald.

Does the name Leo Seuula ring a bell? Even if his name doesn’t sound familiar, you might recognise his friendly face – because Leo has been making headlines left, right and centre!

The ITC graduate has been featured on Seven Sharp and the New Zealand Herald, described as “the man living the dream helping thrill seekers jump off Auckland’s Sky Tower”.

Leo works for AJ Hackett, helping tourists and adventure seekers walk around (or jump off!) the ring of the Sky Tower – some 192m above street level.

For most people, this would be a terrifying thing to do once – let alone for your day job – but Leo says he’s living his dream.
