Posted by Paul Holman of AHA Creative Strategies on May 25th, 2012

In today’s AHA Fast Take Friday, Ruth is on Mou Waho Island in New Zealand talking about how important it is to make an experience personal for people.

Below is a video of the magical experience of tea with a buff weka! (Watch as she tries to eat our food and take a camera case.) There are only about 100 buff wekas in existence and we were the only ones on this island. As you can imagine, it truly was an amazing personal experience!
