Keynote Speakers











Kelly Seymour



Volunteering Bay of Plenty

We engaged Ron as a strategic consultant to help us develop a new strategy. To sum up the experience ‘I have never felt so inspired’. His skills and knowledge not just as an experienced Director and Strategist but as a teacher lead us to developing a fantastic strategy with a clear vision and direction for our organisation. The whole team is engaged and excited about what lies ahead.

“Due to Ron’s extensive Directorship experience the Governance Course was delivered in a very pragmatic and relevant way which provided an excellent learning platform for me.”


Donovan Clarke


Executive Director

Maori Health for Southern DHB, Nga Korero (Ministry of Health)

“The training was extremely well received and, according to the feedback from participants, one of the aspects of the training they found most valuable was the way the training ‘goes further than typical governance training might and acknowledges the importance of those strategic discussions and networking opportunities with other Mana whenua groups. Everyone was left wanting more”.
