Cultural Professional Development

Programme Concepts and Content:

Tailored for organisations that have Maori clients, we offer a one day professional development course that gives the participants relevant information and teachings to increase engagement and produce more effective results.
This programme is specifically designed for professionals required to meet the needs of their Maori client base. The programme is not generic; it will deal with real examples and experiences that will give the participants solutions that can be effectively used within the workplace and caseloads.
We will assist you identify the gaps then purpose design the training, making it relevant to your organisational goals and aspirations.


The programme is delivered on the Otakou marae capturing the beautiful and tranquil setting that is our Otago Peninsula. A powhiri is given by the manawhenua of Otakou fully exposing the participants to our world, while at the same time, supporting them throughout that process with speakers and waiata provided.
If required, one organisation can exclusively book the course which will then be tailored to suit their specific needs.
