HakaHiva Ltd originally stemmed from an idea to put together a stage show that would tour schools delivering a variety of positive messages to children through a uniquely Pasifika performance.
HakaHiva Ltd is all about ‘Keeping Culture Alive’. It aims to build confidence and self esteem, develop a sense of belonging and positively contribute to academic achievement. We teach a range of Pacific Island songs and dances according to age, ability and objectives set by the school. We deliver a structured program that incorporates basic language use, history and background of items. Where possible we use specialist tutors for specific dances.
The success of my business to date has been primarily contributed to, by my business mentor Kim Hill of Stratigi. Kim’s personality accompanied by her skills, knowledge and experience, naturally supported my development and growth as a small business owner and budding entrepreneur.
Through the early stages when it was crucial to get the right advice and encouragement to press forward and make something real out of an idea, Kim was there.
The mentoring sessions with Kim were exactly what I needed at the time to get my business off the ground. With Kim’s support I was able to focus on my priorities, set and accomplish realistic goals for myself and my business, develop good habits and build from a solid foundation from the beginning. My intention was to build the business to a high standard, while maintaining the integrity of its aims, vision and goals.
Kim’s greatest talent, in my experience, is her innate ability to help you to help yourself. It’s an intrinsic part of her nature. Without telling you she leads you to draw your own conclusions and draw up your own plans for success according to your vision. Her infectious vitality and passion for life is motivating. I don’t think you can put a price tag on that. Thank you Kim and the team at Stratigi for being such an inspiration to me and my business.
