Kāhui Tautoko Consulting Ltd’s approach to our communities allowed us to do things our way and their respect for the fact that te reo is our first language was obvious and supported. We have been able to learn at our own pace. We have a close relationship with Kāhui Tautoko Consulting Ltd and we intend to maintain this relationship for a long time as Kāhui Tautoko Consulting Ltd is now part of our wider whanau”
