Awards Steering Committee

E ngā mana puipuiaki, e ngā reo tongarerewa, e kore e mimiti te puna wai i tā koutou mahi rangatira nei. Ahakoa te mahi uaua, kia ū tonu ki te kaupapa nui nei. Tēnā koutou katoa.

To reflect the size and stature of the Awards, the Business School is advised by a steering committee of successful and respected people from across the Māori world.
