This workshop is suitable for those working in any organisational setting who want to improve their understanding of biculturalism in New Zealand, and particularly for senior leaders who want to implement the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi into the workplace.
Kereama’s delivery style is relaxed; he puts people at ease and provides an uncomplicated introduction to the Treaty, including its history, its contents, its relevance for today, and what it means for Māori and Europeans living side by side in New Zealand.
We also look at the Te Whare Tapa Whā model of wellbeing and build an understanding of how it can improve mental health and enable culturally appropriate behaviours in all settings.
The workshop includes informative and interactive sessions that are designed to support individuals, groups and organisations to achieve their bicultural vision and goals.

- have a better understanding of Te Ao Māori concepts and how they influence workplace culture
