Ko Miriama Tilly Turner taku ingoa

I am a wife, mother of 8, mum inlaw of 8, grandmother of 26 grandchildren (mokopuna), great grandmother of 4 great-grandchildren (mokopuna tuarua).

Whanau centred well-being is how my whanau has lived since 2017. The stories I want to share are how we utilised traditional types of story-telling as frameworks to build our whanau capacity and capability, to build our whare and to now experience experiential business growth. I attribute this legacy leadership and a modern understanding and appreciation of our Māori worldview
