Anthony will be answering questions from our facilitator, Whaimutu Dewes, reflecting on his experiences within both Māori and corporate governance from his various board positions, before opening it up to the floor for further questions.

Questions may include:

  • Can you tell us a little about how you got started in governance and how you became involved within non-Māori entities?
  • When you have joined a board that does not uphold tikanga, how have you introduced it?
  • Has there been pushback from other board members, and if so, how did you work through this? What were the outcomes?
  • Do you find that shareholders and board members are conscious of the changing expectations from customers in relation to tikanga/values?
