olympus testimonial about kapa haka performance

We had guests from our overseas Olympus offices as well as customers from the medical, scientific and industrial fields from throughout NZ, all of whom were thoroughly impressed by your team last night. Our guests were so moved by what you shared of our culture, with some quite emotional afterwards, even shedding a tear or two, and our senior management team are still talking about it today! Some of our NZ guests had never had the opportunity to see our culture that close-up and it emphasised with them how unique, strong and proud our Maori culture and heritage is.

I wanted to take this time to properly connect, the USANA family felt the aroha that's for sure and that's exactly what I had hoped for too! Some cried, many got emotional and some blown away literally! The emotions that were spoken forward were a connection hundreds if not all, hadn't felt in a very long time and ignited a ripple effect of hope and a sense of belonging too! Thank you very much.
