Intent is not enough when incorporating Māori Culture – EXECUTION is key!

Day 1 - 11:40am - SME&E Classroom

As a Māori Business who helps organisations build and execute their cultural strategy, we often see the intent is genuine, but the execution still looks like a tick box exercise.

In this 45 minute wānanga with Michael Moka and founder of Indigenous Growth Limited we will demistify 3 beliefs - that get businesses who care in trouble:
- The Snow Ball Effect: Starting small and hoping to gain momentum
- Top down approach: Developing the leaders and owners first
- Cultural Tax: Using your Māori staff

At the end of this wānanga you will get a simple model that will help you know what your role is in incorporating Māori Culture into your business and the first step to executing your strategy with excellence. Executing your Intent Excellently!
