Leadership Training


High Performance Programme to Help your Teams
Build a Resilient Mindset, Adaptability and Improve Effective Communication


The Facing the Haka will help you develop yourself into an effective leader with all the tools, techniques and strategies that will enable you to lead your team through change. We know that change is inevitable and it’s time to face the challenge.

We know how important it is for businesses to adapt quickly enough so they can stay ahead of the competition. You need people on board that understand what needs changing and why, but more importantly, how they can contribute towards making it happen.

Our training programmes have been developed by experts with years of experience in high performance and helping companies achieve success through transformation change. We work closely with our clients every step of the way so we can ensure everyone understands exactly what needs doing and why before any changes are made or implemented within your organisation.

Covid-19 has changed businesses, environment, communities, the social and economic fabric of our country. As leaders investing in your leadership and your teams beyond the crisis is crucial in the next normal. Building your resilience, and strengthening the growth mindset will help you and your organisation’s future.

Gary Lin
BNZ SME Business Manager

"Filipo has a great sense of humour plus decades of experience in top level sport as well as in peak human performance. Also love his journey going from top level sport being ex-Samoan rugby captain, to corporate, and now being in business. Filipo ran a series of high performance workshops with our Auckland, Hamilton, and Christchurch BNZ SME Hubs. Our team performances have really stepped up another gear in the past 3 months across all 3 teams, especially Auckland!"

Clark Lewis
Community Rugby Manager

" Thoroughly enjoyed Filipo session that was based on 'Tackling Change' with life after rugby. He was able to personally relate with the players from being a ex-professional Rugby player and being paid well for the game he loved and then realizing that there is life after rugby and the need to be ready for this, and bring awareness around the numerous factors that influence how long a Rugby career can last. The session was fun and the players were genuinely interested and engaging. "

Alex Fala
CEO VEND Tech Company

"Thanks so much for sharing his insights with us. Highly relevant for our business, and lots of great feedback from the team here at Vend."

Kelly McCallum
Lecturer, Former Canadian Rugby Captain

"We had the pleasure of having Filipo as a guest speaker in our AUT Certificate of Sport and Recreation lecture. His unique and engaging approach left a lasting impression on our students. Many of the students found it easy to relate to his stories and experiences."

Lucy Chang-Lorenzi
Managing Director,
Rotary Club of Auckland

" Filipo shared  with us his personal story about how his father, a railway worker, made a brave decision to pick up the family and move from Auckland to Dunedin to pursue a better life. While in Dunedin, Filipo's father studied theology and became a role model for how hope, hard work, & education are pivotal in making dreams come true. Filipo followed his father's footsteps by breaking out of the norm, following his passion, and transforming his life."

" ... a very powerful Keynote that can save and change many people's lives...your message can reach a very large audience. It's not just professional athletes who struggle with mental illness and feelings of loss when its all over, it can be people who fail to get a promotion, people who get fired from a job."
