Business consulting, book publishing, and more...
Mātanga Hāpai was created to help Māori individuals and teams succeed in business. We have a compelling track record of working with Māori entrepreneurs and professionals across Aotearoa New Zealand.
We also published an international award-winning business book called: Survive & Thrive: Entrepreneurship Frameworks That Work. We will soon publish a contemporary business novel.
Natasha and Paul are a husband and wife team who are equal partners in Mātanga Hāpai. Natasha is Māori (Ngāti Khahungunu and Waikato Tainui) and Paul is from the USA. Natasha focuses on the human side of the the work with our clients, and Paul focuses on the business side.
Natasha has a Masters in Consulting and Coaching for Change from INSEAD, and it working on a Masters in Mental Heath Counseling. Paul has a Harvard degree, is a career professional entrepreneur, and was a professor of entrepreneurship and family enterprise at INSEAD for a decade (he still teaches courses on international business, leadership, crisis leadership, corporate entrepreneurship, innovation, and strategy).
We could do one-on-one mentoring or group trainings.
We can fit what we do to the shape of what you need.
We can help you with pie charts and spreadsheets if that is what you need, but we would much rather help you unlock your personal best in business. Every session with us can be built around what you actually need; we can bring the topics to you or you can tell us what is a burning need for you to puzzle through. Our only agenda is your success.
