Wonderfully presented

We partnered with Mary Dimond at Taimana Training to develop our national Te reo Māori workshops. Mary creates an engaging and positive learning environment where all participants not only gain confidence in their use of te reo but develop deeper insights and appreciation for indigenous languages and cultural diversity. Our relationship has been a great success over the years and is one we value greatly as we continue to develop and imbed the use of everyday te reo within our business.

Meaningful and Insightful

Mary has been guiding the BDO Christchurch team on our discovery of both te reo Māori and tikanga Māori for the past 2 years. Mary makes the learning interactive, fun and achievable bringing te reo Māori alive with history, customs and traditional values ensuring the process is both meaningful and insightful.

Head of People and Culture, BDO

Grown our confidence

Mary is an insightful facilitator, walking us through a comprehensive program that has not only enabled and grown our confidence in everyday use of te reo Māori, but has also given us some deeper insights into how Māori culture shapes thinking and behaviours, and we would highly recommend her program.

Research Consultant, Sheffield

Expert teaching methods

SchoolDocs engaged Mary Dimond from Taimana Training to provide a bespoke series of intensive classes aimed at boosting the confidence of our team to use more Te Reo when working with our kura around the country. From the moment she arrived, Mary engaged our team with her knowledge, charm, and expert teaching methods to deliver super practical and useful learning for us. Our team feel so much more confident and empowered in both our daily use of Te Reo and our pronunciation thanks to Mary's fantastic classes.
Jane Gregg,
General Manager, SchoolDocs

Tohaina ō painga ki te ao

Share your gifts with the world.
Mary has been wonderful to work with and has made the gentle journey into Te Reo for beginners fun, informative and more importantly non-threatening. Learning Te Reo as a business has also been great for culture and confidence and we hope to build on these skills even further with Mary.
Lynette McFadden, Harcourts gold

Professional and Authentic

Grant Thornton has found Taimana Training extremely valuable. Team members at all levels of the business have been provided with an excellent start to their Te Reo Māori journey. Mary brings a professional and authentic facilitation style to her workshops and creates a collaborative team environment for practical and theoretical learning experiences.
