Marcus Akuhata-Brown is a gifted communicator, an emerging leader and an inspiring young speaker with a powerful message!
Marcus Akuhata-Brown grew up on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand. His father is from Te Whanau o Tuwhakairiora of Te Araroa on the East Cape, also the iwi of Ngai Tahu and Kahungunu. His mother is a fifth generation New Zealander with European ancestry. An experienced educator and gifted communicator, Marcus has led a number of innovative programmes around the world.
In New Zealand his work has focused on addressing the learning and developmental needs of youth at risk and young offenders. From 1996 to 2004 Marcus travelled all over the world as a diplomat, international representative and delegate to multilateral meetings. Marcus was a Director on the international board of CIVICUS as well as being an ex-official member of the Commonwealth Youth Caucus.
Marcus will be speaking to the staff and students at Mount Aspiring College on the 4th of February at 10:45am. He will stimulate, entertain and inspire our students with his powerful message and creative style of delivery – he tells of how glass lids of low expectation and achievement were lifted off his life and how, through positive encouragement, intuitive goal setting as well as having the courage to break out of comfort zones, led to a life of excitement, adventure and purpose. Marcus motivates and inspires people to hit higher levels of performance and they leave his presentations with a fresh perspective on life.
He then will be addressing our community at 7:00pm at the college.
We warmly invite you all to come along and hear Marcus speak about the learning and success of our youth based on his own experience through inspiring hundreds of young people here in New Zealand and overseas.
