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.In the Community, News, Student success, Study inspiration | Leave a reply

Welcome back to the ITC Blog. We took a break from publishing content last week in the aftermath of the Christchurch terrorist attack. Our hearts go out to all the victims and their families, and we stand with the Muslim community of Christchurch and New Zealand during this challenging time.
We feel that, now more than ever, it’s important to share stories of hope, resilience, leadership, and community, so we are proud to publish this week’s blog post about one of our most inspirational students, Crissy Briggs. Below, Crissy shares her story of overcoming adversity to become “the leader she always wanted to be”. We are so proud of Crissy and we hope you enjoy reading about her journey.
Some people see studying as a ‘means to an end’ – something you need to do to get a good job.
But studying gives you so much more than just a qualification. Studying can also help boost your confidence, increase your understanding of the world, and improve your communication skills.
This was certainly the case for Crissy Briggs. Crissy says studying at ITC changed her into “a more open, understanding, and sympathetic person”.News, Student success, Study inspiration | Tagged Be Inspired | Leave a reply
