How? In a very unique and powerful way, with Haka, the famous ritual of the All Blacks.

Face your challenges head on!
Our Haka workshops have been the catalyst for energising events and inspiring teams for some of the world's leading companies.

Haka is the winning secret of the All Blacks, the world's best performing sports team and is now being adopted by some of the world's top companies. Give your team the same competitive advantage as the All Blacks.

Why haka workshops are for your event?

  • Engage your audience - Haka generates excitement as our Maori warriors storm the stage with a Haka performance.
  • Energise your team- Bring your team and event to life – our warriors teach your team Haka chants, actions and share the deeper meaning of Haka - unity to overcome adversity and win! 
  • Communicate key messages - Your values come to life – whether its unity, passion, trust, communication, innovation or facing your challenges – our speakers emphasise the link between your event themes and the lessons from Haka. Drawing on knowledge of the All Blacks and Maori culture to inspire and unify.
  • Build team unity - We get your team performing Haka with passion, with vigour, with commitment and as one team together. Not only that but Haka really is for everyone - women, men and all ages!

A fun event remembered for a long time with some important messages to take away.

How It works:

Haka Performance – Our Maori Warriors storm the stage in traditional costume. Our performers are Maori, and the best proponents of Haka outside New Zealand. 

Presentation – What is Haka? Who does it? Why we do it? What is the deeper meaning? Why do the All Blacks do it? – To connect to legacy, to identity and to unite your team to commit to purpose.

Learn Haka – Expertly led by our Haka facilitators (in groups where possible), we teach Haka words, actions and then once confidence grows, expressing Haka as a team with shared energy and passion.

Haka Team Performance – Haka performances, in groups as each team performs for their peers creating an element of competition. And then unified as one team for a Haka finale.

Final messaging: 

“Haka is the being of team”

  • Identity and legacy “Ko te taurahere o Hinengakau” The rope that binds us together (our identity and purpose) comes from the legacy of the ancestors
  • Putting Team before individual - “Ehara taku toa I te toa takitahi” “This victory is not mine alone, but has come through the efforts of the many”

Our Live Haka Performers also offer:

  • Haka Performances – Haka performances to bring power, energy and the spirit of the All Blacks and Maori culture to your event.
  • Key Note on the All Blacks Winning Culture – What gives the All Blacks their winning edge? How Maori culture and its emphasise on unity, identity, whanau/ family, and humility has helped create one of the world’s greatest sports teams. Important lessons for leaders. Designed to complement and lay the ground work for a follow up Haka workshop.
  • Haka Composition workshops – Capturing your company values through composing your own Haka. Half day facilitated workshop exploring your team’s values, capturing them through metaphor and story, creating Haka chants and actions, sharing lessons and performing as a team. A unique and very interactive workshop that captures and embodies team values.
