Maori Business Conference Serving up Success in Whanganui

Maori Business Conference Serving up Success in Whanganui

Maori success in business is on the menu this year at the 27th annual Federation of Maori Authorities National Conference. The conference boasts a superb banquet dinner designed by the MasterChef 2014 winners Karena and Kasey Bird. The dinner is one of the special evening events at the conference that will be held at the Whanganui Hall and Conference Centre from 26 – 28 September.

The talented sisters Kasey and Karena, who live next door to each other in Maketu, got their own taste of success in May this year winning the grand final of the popular television show MasterChef New Zealand. Although they lost the first challenge of the final, the determined young women came back against opponents Arrowtown friends Becs Stanley and Jamie Stodler scoring a full 20 points for their entrée, a highly intricate and complex version of a ham, cheese and tomato sandwich.

The girls (who have Ngati Whakaue and Ngapuhi affiliations) have come up with a mouth-watering menu for the main conference dinner which has been generously sponsored by Silver Fern Farms and Aotearoa Fisheries Limited. They will also be speaking at the dinner about their experience of success on Master Chef 2014.

Maori business success will be celebrated in a number of ways during the three day conference including a special presentation to Hon. Tariana Turia for her contribution to Maori development, and presentations from 2014 Ahuwhenua Young Farmer of the Year Wiremu Reid and members of Te Rua o te Moko Ltd, the winners of the Ahuwhenua Trophy BNZ Excellence in Farming Award 2014 for dairy farming

Federation of Maori Authorities Chief Executive Te Horipo Karaitiana says that celebrating success is an important part of the annual conference, “Success is happening across the board in Maori business. It’s important to acknowledge the dedication and hard work that these winners have shown. Our conference dinner is always a highlight and I know we’re all looking forward to sampling some of what has made Kasey and Karena so successful on MasterChef this year.”

Conference registration details and full conference programme information can be found at http://federation.conference.maori.nz/index.htm. Conference registrations close at 5pm Friday 19 September.
