Letter from the CE: Celebrating our success

Over the years, ENZ has been working with the sector to build awareness of New Zealand’s international education offerings and to attract students to study here. Often we forget to stop and celebrate our achievements but recent awards tell us we are doing high-quality work.

Following our terrific success at the New Zealand Direct Marketing Awards, we have now had some international award successes.

Our Director of Student Acquisition, Euan Howden, has won a Marketo Revvie Award for Fearless Marketerfor leading ENZ’s database marketing transformation, and our Communications team has won a prestigious Gold Quill Award for ENZ’s efforts to build a greater understanding of international education in New Zealand. 

We’re in good company – being internationally benchmarked alongside global heavyweights.

But this work has not happened in isolation. We owe it in large part to our collaboration with many representatives from across New Zealand’s international education industry. These awards are also a result of your much-valued ongoing support and assistance.

We had a clear purpose behind our approach: to provide the best support we could to New Zealand's education sector. Importantly, this work is well-aligned with the goals of our International Education Strategy and is a great reflection of our commitment to achieving sustainable growth, delivering an excellent student experience and fostering global citizens.

We want to continue to deliver value to the sector, and always welcome your feedback. I encourage education providers and regional partners to attend ENZ’s ongoing industry engagement events and workshops. It’s a fantastic opportunity to connect with our talented team, pick their brains and find out how we can help you in your efforts, from recruitment through to advocacy.

I hope you’ll join me in congratulating our teams who led this work.

On behalf of ENZ, we look forward to continuing to work together to make New Zealand a special study destination for students from all around the world.
