Ash Puriri HBT

Event Details





For Ash Puriri, completing his doctorate from the University of Waikato is a far cry from his days as a renowned Barry White impersonator.

In his mid-50s, Dr Puriri has accomplished a lot – he is a veteran of global cruise ship entertainment, an opera singer and songwriter.

Of Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāti Rongomai-wahine and Ngāti Porou, he is graduating next month with a doctorate that has broken new ground in business research.

“My PhD is an absolute first in terms of exercising an emancipated indigenous methodology for a business doctorate.

Coming from humble farming background in Hawke’s Bay, he left in 1998 and always gravitated towards learning and wanted to understand business and commercial law, with a focus on economic development of indigenous people.
