Vaughan founded V Formation to focus on helping small businesses achieve their potential.  Along the way he has become a passionate spokesperson for the owners of the hundreds of thousands of small businesses in New Zealand. In this interview we talk all about that and what is keeping him busy these days, but we also start off back with his childhood and learn about what has led him to get involved in this.  We also hear about his working for Japanese companies and what he learned from that, the important legacy that comes from exploring his Whakapapa and family origins and what makes a good storyteller.  I really enjoyed this conversation and am sure you will as well. 


This is one of almost 200 interviews so check out the others at
