      Kia OraI’m just wounder whether the team at Manaaki could help me with the growth of our family run company?Here’s a bit of a back story of my journey so far. My name is Norman Kete, I’m an Owner/Director of a Workplace Health & Safety Training company, but our predominantly focus is on crane training & assessing. We are based out of Taupo but travel up & down the country. I’ve been apart of the crane industry for over 15 years, & during that time, I was also a crane operator. But at the end of 2013, due to a non work related injury, I lost my right eye. So because of the fact that I had monocular vision, I couldn’t go back to operating the 100 to 130ton cranes I was once operating. I ended up on ACC for a year or so, but was approached by a training company to become a crane trainer /assessor. I worked for that training company for 3 years before I decided to go out on my own. So my wife & I started Leverage Training Ltd. We’ve had a really great start, especially over our first 2 years & managed to gain a great client base; but that was pre Covid-19. Post Covid-19 has seen our sales drop around 40%.Anyway, we’ve been struggling with our Leverage Training presence online & I’ve had quite a drop in the way of gathering new customers, especially since Covid. My loyal customers are keeping us going, but I need to reach out to new companies to secure move work.So again, I was hoping Manaaki might have some suggestions to help us grow in this current climate. Cheers! Kind RegardsNorman KeteLeverage Training Ltd.

      Hi, how can I reach new audiences without spending lots of money? I have an ecommerce business selling quality goods for cats and their people (fangandfur.co.nz). I’ve done paid social media and google advertising in the past, but the returns have never really been worthwhile. looking for new ideas!

      Growing!

      Question submitted 02/02/21 @ 07:40am

      Kia ora! I’m a freelance web designer and developer that has recently re-branded myself as a digital agency (beingstudio.digital) with the intention to form a ‘satellite’ style agency with other talented Māori and Pasifika in tech. Currently, my target market is ‘socially-minded small businesses’ (including a wide range of industries across social enterprise, Māori development, holistic practitioners/wellness space). I have worked in these spaces and am familiar with their business/impact needs, cultural practices, and my customers appreciate the intentionality of the ‘tech-for-good’ spirit behind my business, I believe that is a unique CVP in the digital agency space which is already very saturated. Although January was relatively quiet (as to be expected) I was averaging around 2-3 new clients per month for branding design, web design, and web development since launching in October, most of which were referrals. I know I need to stretch and grow into the digital marketing space but am feeling a little overwhelmed on where to start. I am currently balancing my business with a steady income from some contracting at a start-up, but am aiming to take the plunge and go full-time in my business by the time my contract ends in 4 months. I am hoping to be able to hire a business coach to help me with managing my day-to-day as my business acumen needs some growth. What are some of the things I should focus on in the next few months to drive more growth in my business and develop my skills as a business owner? Ngā mihi!

      Question submitted 27/08/20 @ 10:10pm

      Kia ora, I currently work in the early year’s space focusing on early childhood development and in particular have a passion for the acquisition of te reo Māori as foundational for Māori health and wellbeing. I have been researching a gap in the education landscape for the provision of quality bilingual and immersion EC options for whānau/family. Whānau are currently having to wait for available spaces to access local Kura Kaupapa Māori placements, drive long distances to access quality providers, or place their children in English medium.Home-based EC care is the fastest-growing section of the EC sector, constituting 65% of total growth in the market since 2007. Whilst the provision of home-based care offers more options, inconsistent quality is a major issue.  70% of providers have no formal teaching qualification, 22% have a lvl 3 qualification and only 7% of providers are fully trained.  The Minister for Ed, C. Hipkins, announced in 2019 a number of policy changes to regulate the home-based market.  The policy requires home-based providers to work toward a level 4 EC qualification & submit to ERO review.Without sufficient support to level up, many home-based providers will struggle to meet these requirements for ongoing funding.  Māori providing bilingual or immersion services will be most impacted as the equivalent qualification is the level 5 kōhanga reo qual.  Formal teacher training opportunities don’t cater well for home-based providers who don’t get relief time to study or can’t afford it.  My business idea is to create a hub called Kainga Tupu (HomeGrown), which aims to develop the Māori home-based EC care provider workforce and enable continuous improvement. The hub would support Māori providers to link to teacher training options through micro-credentialing so they can meet the policy requirement of working towards a level 5 qualification. The hub would also be a digital platform to access: peer-to-peer support; professional teaching supervision; subject matter knowledge around child development; experts in te reo and tikanga; assessment & audit support to meet ERO standards, etc.The long-game is to impact Māori health and wellbeing by growing quality te reo Māori learning environments for pēpi and tamariki Māori to have early access to their language, culture, and identity.  The toxic-stress on whānau Māori would reduce from having readily available options. The growth in Māori practitioners to provide te reo based EC options will meet the growing demand for te reo Māori language acquisition.  Digital badging supports workforce development to address the qualification gap. Digital servicing through the hub will mean that service quality is flexible and accessible; it also provides for business continuity in the current Covid climate. So what advice do I need from the gurus at Manaaki?  Well, if I was to develop an investment proposal around this idea, where would be the best place to take it? Should I try to attract philanthropic investment to support the initial development & test/evaluate it as a model for quality improvement over 2 years?  Are there government funding options for this type of initiative? Other funding streams? If the model works locally could it be scalable nationally & beyond?  Kia ora and thanks for your advice/assistance.
