Mavis Mullins’ LinkedIn profile lists some 18 jobs – for many this would be too many, but for Mullins it seems about right! 

The second Māori woman (the first was Te Puea Hērangi) to be inducted into the New Zealand Business Hall of Fame, Mullins has an impressive list of accolades and has used her influence to increase self-esteem and pride in the shearing industry. 

Beginning in the whānau company as a wool classer, Mullins’ shearing business became the first in the world to achieve ISO 9002 accreditation – a global quality management system. "People said we were dumb doing that for shearers, but we thought: No. We’re worth it."

Watch this extract from I know a Sheila Like That as Mavis Mullins talks about the evolution of the shearing industry.
