  • ABOUT US

    Horoeka Creative works at the intersection of strategy and creativity

    to address complex challenges and nurture collective action.

  • OUR FOCUS AREAS

    Collective Action

     

    Breaking down siloes

    One of the ultimate buzzwords of the last 10 years - yet Collaboration is at the heart of how we will tackle more big challenges in the world, and generate more value for businesses, governments and society. We craft experiences, workshops, programs and more, to build people's capacity and capability for collective action.

    Environmental Restoration

    Trees for life

    Society is increasingly disconnected from the natural world, and it's causing untold problems. At the root of so many problems, we see nature disconnection. We're building a practice which helps people reconnect and work on huge challenges like biodiversity loss, climate change and more.

    Agency

     

    Lighting the flame

    We need more people working on complex problems, not selling more toasters. We work on processes and experiences which help people understand their purpose, connect deeply with it, and work out what they can do from the position they're in to make the world a better place.

    Wellbeing

     

    Beyond the spa

    Wellbeing is about much more than wellness retreats and yoga in the park. People who experience elevated levels of wellbeing are more likely to build their skills, resources, and tackle big problems in the world. We work with wellbeing frameworks like PERMA, 5 Ways & Te Whare Tapa Whā to help people thrive.

  • WALKING THE TALK

    Horoeka Creative is rooted in action, not consultancy-at-a-distance, with projects such as:

     

    Kanopi, Lifehack, Enspiral, Collaboration Cafe & more.

     

    When I get to work on other people's problems, I bring everything I've learnt with me.

     

    I have an open-source ethos, sharing our work so others can use it. Periodically I release resources and ebooks - check our latest one below:
