Frano Botica

A true professional in everything he tackles, Frano firmly believes that the principles he learned as a top-level rugby player can be successfully applied in the business arena.

With 18 years’ experience playing internationally for the New Zealand Sevens, New Zealand Maoris, All Blacks and Kiwis, he has always relished the challenge of producing his best possible effort on every occasion. As a former captain he also has exceptional leadership skills, making him an excellent group facilitator.

Frano’s long career at the elite level of sport has complemented his ongoing business career, enabling him to operate effectively with a wide range of groups and organisations. He has worked with Fonterra, the Department of Conservation, Downer, Carter Holt Harvey and the New Zealand Defence Force, among others.

“I love the fact that I get to work with everyday people and to see the smiles on their faces when they connect with the tools we give them. Their work and personal lives improve so much as they apply the learning and challenge their own ways of thinking.”

He has a passion for leadership development and relishes the opportunity to deliver programmes that create positive change.
