Tipu Ngapo

Tipu joined The Learning Wave after living and working in Europe, North America, Australia and Asia, where he learned and built his skills in consulting, training, facilitating and coaching.

He focuses on enhancing leadership for leaders, and building stronger communication and team capability in all areas of business. He works with corporate clients in industries as diverse as advertising, banking, construction, finance, government, insurance, IT, logistics, manufacturing, media, pharmaceutical, professional services and retail.

His diverse cultural and business experience has helped business leaders and their teams in some of New Zealand’s leading organisations, including Sky TV, Te Whanau O Waipareira and Zoetis. He injects fun, relevance and utter professionalism into his sessions. He will also challenge participants to ensure they gain absolute value from start to finish, and leave with key takeaways to build success immediately.

Tipu is a master NLP practitioner, holds a bachelor’s degree (with honours) in computer science, a Cert IV in Workplace Training and Assessment, and is accredited in DiSC and Myers Briggs behaviour profiling. He is also a professional certified coach specialising in the neuroscience of leadership, taking a whole-brain approach. He is known for his ability to both push the boundaries and champion his clients.

“I love when people tell me during or after a session that they ‘get it’, and share their ‘aha’ moment. It’s great to help people lift their capability and self-confidence, and challenge their ways of thinking, so they accelerate changes to meet and exceed business objectives.”

One measure of his success is when participants ask if he actually works in the company! You can expect to be inspired, motivated and encouraged to think differently after one of his sessions.
