what our clients say

These are just snippets of references received from clients and stakeholders. We would be happy to share the full letter of reference.

We would like to forward our vote of support to the Auaha Event and Conference Management team who have provided their services to our regional organisation (Aotea Māori Performing Arts Committee) which our kapa haka roopu are affiliated to.  Auaha are very professional and deliver a very high standard and caring quality of management.  Auaha's consultation and reporting measures are very engaging and always values the input of everyone involved which contributes to the great sucess of the event management which I am aware Auaha produces time after time.  I would highly reccommend their services.
On behalf of Te Reanga Morehu O Ratana Kapa Haka roopu ki (Aotea)

Just a fabulous event - everything had been thought of. Couldn't have asked for better.
Toni Joblin, PricewaterhouseCoopers

I have used other Event Management organisations before Auaha and can honestly say Auaha have delivered the best service to date. The Organisation was outstanding - they have the ability to think outside the square in a way which is conducive to achieving the outcomes required. They are friendly and helpful team with the skills and ability to deliver. Auaha has a good knowledge of Kaupapa Māori which is an attribute when working within Māori Education and with the Māori sector.
Lisa Rangiaho, Senior Advisor, Ministry of Education

Well organised function, and the attention to detail was great. Everyone loved the way the theme was incorporated right down to the folded serviettes and chocolates that were on the table.

Joni Horton, PricewaterhouseCoopers

From initial planning through to final delivery of this event, we have been impressed by Auaha's creative thinking, attention to detail and professionalism and the results speak for itself - A tremendous event that truly engaged the Waitara community and spirit, an event that ran without a hitch, on schedule and on budget.

Nigel Dee, Pohokura Execution Manager, Shell Exploration NZ Ltd

I have found Auaha to be extremely professional at all times and provide a service that is second to none.

Bry Kopu, Manager Community Development, New Plymouth District Council

Feedback has been excellent and we have been overwhelmed by participant's positive comments. Many have asked us to personally pass on their appreciation and thanks. Your organisational skills, expertise and advice made all the difference and I can truly say we couldn't have done it without your help!

Carol Malpas, New Plymouth District Council

I was impressed by the professional and insightful way Auaha managed both the lead up and the actual conference. Sandra remained clam, suggested workable options and gave clear signals around time frames and constraints. Her effective communication skills ensured the organising reference group were involved in decision making.

Petra van den Munckhof, National Coordinator, Healthcare Aotearoa.

Your support and efforts made the level of success achieved possible and we are very grateful for that. The advice you gave and that you were prepared to assist us even with last minute details was very much appreciated.

Bill Takerei, Group CEO, Poutiri Trust

"We are very impressed with your organisational and reporting skills that clearly outline your accountability in project managing this important event. We appreciate and acknowledge your continued commitment and quality performance in ensuring our conference is successful."

Syd Jackson, Chairman, Te Matarau Ltd

Auaha Ltd stood out as an organisation with the structures in place, visionary policies and leadership that provide excellent opportunities for the support and development of staff.

Gloria Campbell, Regional Commissioner, Work and Income
Tokatumoana (Kevin) Walden, Regional Director, Te Puni Kokiri

We have found your work to be highly professional and reflective of the principles of Hauora Taranaki and its strategic direction. The extra effort you have made to ensure that our Board and providers have an understanding of the meaning of the logo has been very much appreciated.

Brenda Rea & Hayden Wano, PHO Management, Hauora Taranaki

You have achieved a great deal, and shown all of us what Maori women can do in business. You are also making a positive contribution to New Zealand's business economy. Thank you for that.
Hon Ruth Dyson, Minister of Women's Affairs

I would suggest that much of the way we do business originates from the culture of whanau, hapu and iwi. To tangata whenua, business is about whanaungatanga, about alliances and allegiances formed with others. In this way the strategies and assistance you are providing in all aspects of business management seem to be a really effective way of supporting Maori business development, and I commend you for this mahi.
