The Manawatū Te Au Pakihi Māori Business Network and the Central Economic Development Agency hosted a breakfast hui at Wharerata, at Massey’s Manawatū campus on Wednesday with presentations by College of Business associate dean Māori and Te Aho Tāmaka Manawatū leader Dr Farah Palmer and Te Au Rangahau co-director Dr Jason Mika about their recent work and travels.

The breakfast was also Dr Palmer’s official welcome into the Te Aho Tāmaka programme, an initiative led by the agency that acknowledges and celebrates the region’s most accomplished leaders across many fields, including academia, business, arts, sport, culture, theology, who are recognised for their work nationally and globally.

Dr Palmer was presented with a leader’s award by Manawatū District Mayor Helen Worboys and Palmerston North Mayor Grant Smith. She expressed her support for the kaupapa of the programme and pleasure to have been asked to become a leader.
