Te Ao Māori the point of difference for Sir Ian Taylor

May 18, 2022, 3:47 p.m.

Sir Ian Taylor came from humble beginnings. He told Kūaka Mārangaranga host, Joel Bristow, that his footsteps began in a house without electricity. Now the businessman, innovator and television personality is to receive an honorary doctor of commerce degree from the University of Otago for his contribution to business and Dunedin.

He says the Te Ao Māori is key to his many successes and wants tamariki to know that they are the descendants of great scientists and leaders.

Taylor says "It's about the mokopuna"
