His personal life goals saw Ngahihi o te ra achieve success by the age of 26, only to find he had turned his back on his own indigenous Maori Culture. While he had worked hard to attain the relevant  Business knowledge and skills and was employed in the Business world, he had lost his identity as an indigenous Maori of New Zealand. He did not know what it meant to be Maori.

Ngahi realigned his personal goals and based them on identity. These personal goals took him into the Education sector where he retrained and qualified before being employed in the Primary, Secondary and Tertiary sectors of Education. His employment in the Education sector has included teaching at the Primary sector in a Maori Total Immersion school, teaching and managing in the secondary sector, developing programmes and lecturing in the tertiary sector before becoming a tertiary senior manager.

These life experiences make Ngahihi o te ra a unique and authoritative speaker. His real life experiences and appropriate qualifications ensure Ngahi has the keynote speech and workshop to meet your requirements.

Ngahihi o te ra Bidois has helped many Business Leaders, Educational Leaders, Sports Leaders and Community Leaders to increase their spheres of influence. He has presented in various countries including Malaysia, Singapore, America, England as well as conferences and seminars throughout New Zealand. Applying Ancient Wisdom from his indigenous culture Ngahihi offers pieces of wisdom in an inspiring and informing manner.

Ngahihi o te ra says “I believe the most important resource in many organisations are their people. If people feel valued and are appropriately developed their continued contribution is priceless. One of our Maori proverbs outlines this: He aha te mea nui? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata. What is the most important thing? It is people, people, people. I help organisations to develop their people.” 

Ngahi says: "My professional experiences in the business and education sectors prove to me that it is people that make a difference to profits. If you develop people at all levels of your business, you will improve your profits. One of our well known indigenous Maori proverbs speaks of people being the most important resource in this world.

This is just one of the concepts of ancient wisdom from my indigenous Maori culture which I talk about and could become a modern solution for your personal and professional lives.”
