The Mana Moana Experience

It makes us very excited that this new Pacific leadership initiative has been launched. Focusing on mid-career Pacific candidates, this year-long specialist programme will develop effective leaders through the vitalisation and mobilisation of indigenous Pasifika language, knowledge, values, culture, ways of knowing and viewing the world.  

The inaugural 18 participants were joined for the first retreat by Leadership New Zealand staff and key speakers.

More information about the programme on the Leadership NZ website
