    Communications Project

    As part of our Hononga social strategy, Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Rārua engaged our whanaunga Challen Wilson & Mona-Pauline Mangakāhia from The Sister Consultancy (based in Auckland & Wellington) to develop our integrated communications strategy and toolkit. They worked alongside, whanaunga, Kingi Gilbert from Ignite Studios (based in Auckland & Hawai'i) to develop the new website. The strategy is multi-tiered and has been working on connecting with whānau to understand their aspirations. From the months of February through to October much work has been acheived, such as:

    • Interviews have been captured with the Trustees
    • Research has been conducted, analysed and reported on
    • Whanaungatanga events have been run in Motueka, Blenheim & Auckland
    • Website has been upgraded
    • Social media has become more active
    • A communications toolkit has been developed to support effective communications
