On FireIMG_8439

‘On Fire’ is the brand assigned to a custom built Leadership Program, delivered to high school students. 

‘Kaitaia On Fire’ was delivered to the senior students of Kaitaia College in New Zealand. 

This leadership program focusses on success principles and resilience tools of 3 to 4 real life career role models and uses multi-media and experiential methods to insill learning. 

An online community bolsters support post the workshop and can be used as a forum for virtual mentoring, billeting and work experience opportunities for students, as well as a forum for sponsorship and fundraising opportunities for the school. 

Talent comes from multiple sources and is exhibited across many roles and industries. When you tap into the ‘how’ from that talent (role models located globally, nationally and locally), learn from and support each other and make doing so fun and accessible, an entire community can ignite and be awesome. 

This workshop is relevant for all high schools and their senior students. It is tailored for your community.
