The presentation from Dr Palatasa Havea.

“You will succeed in science, just don’t forget your roots.”
Come meet the Tongan Scientist! The senior Fonterra dairy scientist took three years to get out of Year 10 in Tonga, and only really learnt to read and write properly in his last year at high school. He overcame those setbacks to hold the island nation's first food science PhD, pioneered the use of whey protein in a variety of products in this country and now regularly advises the New Zealand government on policy issues in the Pacific Islands.

The opening presentation from Paora Ammunson, Deputy Chief Executive, Learner Success - Ōritetanga Directorate, Tertiary Education Commission at Hui Fono 2019.
