Case Studies

I really value being part of The ICEHOUSE League. It is a mutual, multi-layered relationship. This year The ICEHOUSE is helping The Sutton Group open up markets in Asia. Last year I was able to lobby ministers at Parliament about the economic benefits of educating business owners to grow internationally capable companies. I also presented alongside Andy Hamilton at the BNZ Leadership Forum. By actively engaging with The ICEHOUSE, I have been able to lead my own business to the very best of my ability and contribute to the broader success of growing New Zealand businesses.”
