Māori Values and Leadership Inclusion

“Indigenous values and paradigms are even more relevant in a world where we need to think holistically, collaboratively and in a diverse way.”


Michael is Director of Indigenous Growth, on a mission to be the world’s leading organisation in developing people with indigenous values in an indigenous way, empowering indigenous globally to enhance their mana (confidence, strength and power), play their roles personally, professionally and culturally in order to conquer the poverty cycle mind-set.


A compelling speaker who has appeared at many events, including TedX and the 2019 Diversity and Inclusion Summit, Michael is a natural educator with a genuine and holistic approach to indigenous engagement.


A proud husband, son, brother, cousin, uncle, whānau member Role-Māori and cycle breaker.
