Aotearoa New Zealand Business

Our consultancy seeks to bring two worlds together to solve problems and find solutions.  Our logo is
reflective of our approach to find similarities or commonalities, whilst also acknowledging and upholding the integrity of each individual worldview. 

In our view, what makes Whetū Consultancy Group an Aotearoa New Zealand consultancy is our intent to uphold in all our expressions, the values of aroha and whakapono, through our tikanga of whanaungatanga, manaakitanga, kaitiakitanga and kotahitanga.

Our Tikanga

In addition to our foundational values of aroha and whakapono, our Tikanga or Code of Conduct, will ensure we achieve our expressions of the following Māori principles:

Whanaungatanga 
That in our efforts to make connections, we will always aim to build lasting and enduring relationships.

Manaakitanga
That we are both servants and host to our clients and wider community, and that we take responsibility for our actions so that people feel content and looked after.

Kaitiakitanga
That we see ourselves as kaitiaki, whilst also supporting other kaitiaki, in seeking positive outcomes for our environment and communities.  We acknowledge that while we are focused on future generations, we are also present in the now.

Kotahitanga
That, in our capacity, we aim to bridge relationships between Māori and non-Māori through a variety of measures so as to bring awareness and understanding.  We will always aim to find solutions and/or solve problems that bring win-win outcomes, and believe in the merits and benefits of working together in a collaborative manner.

Whakapono ki te Atua i runga rawa, ā ki roto ki tēnā, ki tēnā o tātou.

Trust and faith in a higher being as well as in others.
