Directors’ Breakfast - Backed by BDO

06 July 2018

On Tuesday 3rd July, BDO Auckland hosted their second Directors Breakfast event on the topic of Maori Business investment

Key points from the breakfast include:

  • When working with Māori be authentic, be genuine, building relationships take time
  • Long-term decisions are values based
  • The success of the hakathon was due to the power of millennials, the culture of the region hosting the event, for international guests the ‘wow’ of the panorama, purpose and collaboration; characteristics that can be transferred
  • The Māori tech sector is an incredible success story
  • Opportunities for investment locally and internationally are rich

For additional insights which guest speakers Mavis Mullins and Barry Soutar kindly shared with Kylee Potae (BDO Partner and Maori Sector Leader), check out the below video.
