Not every organisation is in the same place. We pick you up exactly at the step your organisation is at and guide you through the remaining journey.
Our approach is tailored to your needs and delivered through our sub-brands and partner organisations that are focused on a specific area in your journey:
Digital Moana is a digital platform for raising cultural awareness in organisations. Digital Moana delivers snackable messaging on digital organisational channels to upskill deskless and office workers in an easily accessible way.
Through its repetitive and snackable delivery, it allows easier retention and educates without overwhelming.
Digital Moana shares important Māori and Pacific milestones with the whole organisation silently and unobtrusively. This opens and inspires minds and gives Maori and Pacific workers a feeling of inclusion and pride about their cultures.
