“I've known Kaye - Maree Dunn for approximately 2 years I have always had the utmost respect and aroha for the way she has conducted herself by implementing a 'Tikanga Māori' approach into her everyday life by promoting, uplifting and providing opportunities from within the Tech sector for our rangatahi to pursue their dreams within the 'Tech' industry.  A highly intelligent mana wahine with kaupapa māori values at the very core of whatever she puts her mind too, it's been an absolute pleasure of mine to not only work alongside her as a partner, but also as a friend as well.”
Pita Pirihi, Kaiwhakahaere

“Kaye-Maree is an accomplished presenter that has been involved in many of our webinars. She puts presenters and viewers at ease with her on screen warmth and ensures that insightful questions are asked of presenters to support the learning of all those viewing the webinars. Thank you so much for all the work you have done to support our kaupapa of sharing community based research and knowledge.”
