I was privileged to speak at The MOKO Foundation's Leadership Summit at Waitangi in the weekend, and to attend the dinner the previous evening to launch the 2017 Hawea Vercoe Leadership Programme. The young people who are the 2017 recipients of these scholarships, that partner them with amazing mentors, were impressive - as were the citations of their achievements already, and their aspirations! I was even more inspired however, by their probing questions of those of us who spoke at the Summit the next day! They certainly kept us on our toes, as they should.
Congratulations to The MOKO Foundation and everyone involved - the mentees, the mentors, the MOKO team, particularly Dr Lance O'Sullivan and CEO, Deirdre Otene. I was inspired!
