Erin Black



I'm so pleased to be partnering with Height to support the delivery of this very impactful kaupapa. The whakatauki comes to mind "Poipoia te kākano kia puawai - nuture the seed and it will blossom". There is a great deal of potential in the Māori economy, I'm looking forward to working with pakihi Māori and Pasifika to realise this awesome potential.
