IEEE Leadership Workshop

Registrations closed—all places have been filled!

The University of Auckland IEEE Student Branch, jointly with IEEE Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) New Zealand North, proudly present a Leadership Workshop, to be held Thursday 24 June at 6pm, specifically targeted to students and young professionals in fields related to electrical, electronic and computer engineering.

Overview and Biography

Good leaders are not just born, but they are made.  The first step to becoming a good leader is to learn from others’ experience to see how you can improve your own skills.  This workshop provides an excellent opportunity to take this first step towards better leadership.  Today’s employers value leadership skills extremely highly, and so attending this intensive workshop would be a great addition to your CV.

This workshop will be conducted by Loreen Ozolins, who has over 20 years of leadership experience in the technology, retail and customer service sectors including microelectronics, banking, aerospace, energy, airlines, telecommunications, pulp and paper and fast moving consumer goods. Loreen specializes in expert delivery of large and complex strategic programs with significant change management components, in particular for the Senior Executive Management level. She is both flexible and innovative in her approach to managing multi-vendor environments, with specialist expertise in aligning and mobilizing large cross-functional teams.

The University of Auckland IEEE Student Branch is pleased to announce that the inaugural IEEE Australia and New Zealand Student Congress (ANZSCON), hosted by the IEEE Victorian Section, will be held in Melbourne from 24–26 November 2010.  Registrations of interest only are now open—see below for details.


ANZSCON 2010 is looking to include:

  • Employers’ forum and talks
  • Professional skills seminars
  • Poster and project competition
  • Getting the most from your IEEE membership
  • A cocktail function on the first night, and a formal dinner on the second, when you can get to know the other attendees

A core objective of ANZSCON is to improve the network of students from campuses across Australia and New Zealand, as well as provide exposure to employers from the two countries.  Volunteers from 15 universities, including Auckland, AUT and Canterbury are involved in organising this, so it’s sure to be an event for students from all campuses.

You can check out the full programme at  Our programme’s still tentative at this stage, so watch this space!

Registration of Interest

To register your interest, fill in and submit the form at  Also, please e-mail us at to let us know you’re interested.  This would not be a commitment. Even if you’re just thinking about going, put your name down, just so that we have an idea of who’s interested in going.  We’ll be sending detailed updates to IEEE members and other people who register interest.


The registration fee is set at A$100 for IEEE members (currently ~NZ$125).  We’re trying to push this as close to zero as we can with sponsorships; if we succeed, there will be a rebate on accommodation (which is not part of the registration fee).  There will be a higher fee for non-members, but you can join the IEEE at any time before fees are due.  You don’t need to pay the registration fee yet; if you register interest with us we’ll tell you when you need to.

The University of Auckland Student Branch will be organising group accommodation in Melbourne with the University of Canterbury Student Branch—details to come.


If you want to go, we do recommend that you book your flights ASAP, as flight prices tend to increase with time.  You should aim to arrive on/before the afternoon of Wednesday 24 November (evening at the latest, but you’d miss the cocktail function), and leave on or after the morning of Saturday 27 November.  Of course, you might consider staying in Melbourne for longer than just the Congress.

If you’re not a New Zealand citizen, or an Australian citizen or resident, you may need a visa.  If this applies to you, flick us an e-mail at and we’ll be glad to help you out.
