A quick breakdown of all our offerings

Manaaki Mentor - Kōrero with Manaaki Experts

Every person in Aotearoa is about two degrees of separation away from anyone else. For our small business whānau, we’re bringing them even closer together, thanks to our mates at 2degrees Business.

If you’re a small business owner, you can catch up with a Kiwi business expert just by clicking ‘Book a time’ below. A kōrero with one of these legends could be the start of something big.
