The Impact of Te Kaa
"Te Kaa provided an interactive learning window into a culture that I knew very little about.
Now I have a new found respect and a passion to keep learning about all things Māori".
- Suzy Clarkson GM Corporate Communications IAG NZ
"Te Kaa was probably the most impactful and meaningful structured learning investment I have experienced. It was exceptional. It has driven change in all of us and I am very appreciative of the opportunity to fill some real gaps in my understanding but more importantly some meaningful evolutions in my belief system. The Te Kaa team have put together a very good quality programme and I felt enriched by it.
"Also not to be underestimated is the positive impact on team cohesion. I think we all came out of Te Kaa closer and in an even better position to work together as a team within Southern Cross."

"Fantastic leadership and facilitation from Precious. She operates with real Mana, authenticity and pragmatism and really pushes people to generate a deeper level of understanding, but is also open to challenge and enquiry.
"She has an ability to shape the conversation, balancing the need to ‘go down a rabbit hole’ vs getting through the content. Great at making linkages between the content and sessions. Good at managing the group dynamic and energy levels. She really got the best out of people."
"Te Kaa is a well led programme utilising subject matter expertise across each module. Groups are purposely small to ensure active participation at a pace that is supportive of varying degrees of understanding of Te Ao Māori.
"Its unique approach to exploring all things Māori is well-constructed and promotes rich discussion across the roopu. I have thoroughly enjoyed my journey and recommend Te Kaa to those wanting to establish a better understanding of Māori concepts and establish meaningful relationships with Māori.”

"Like a lot of people, learning Te Reo is on my to-do list. But what I am learning through Te Kaa is that putting Te Reo into a full cultural context is the real game changer.
"The depth of understanding that I have reached in just a few sessions has shifted how I think of myself as a New Zealander on a profound level. Precious and her fantastic contributors weave dialogue and experiential learning together in an inclusive and refreshing way.
"Consider this as mandatory to those wanting to lead in an exciting NZ future."
