Who we are

20 years of developing people and business the way nature intended.

Our Story  

Jon and YoshimiTetraMap was developed in New Zealand Aotearoa by Yoshimi and Jon Brett. 

A Japanese/American veteran school teacher (Yoshimi) meets Jon, a Kiwi teacher turned sailing adventurer and – the love story begins. They lived out aligned passions around learning, technology, health and the environment.  

Instead of rearing children, Yoshimi and Jon gave birth to TetraMap. They looked to nature to create a learning model that increases personal well-being and team cohesion.  Combining lessons from ancient Chinese philosophy about Nature’s Elements with Buckminster Fuller’s scientific approach to ‘make the world work’,  the model has a unique approach and appeal.   

“My vision for TetraMap is world peace, where everyone respects each other and our fragile planet.”

Jon Brett, Co-Founder 

We do what we do because we believe: 

  • We are all connected and inter-dependent, and we are all part of nature.   
  • We can all learn to do more with less and reduce waste – both human and environmental. 
  • Understanding how our differences and diversity add value to the whole is not taught in school. 
  • Leaders need guidance and tools to help others reach their potential.
  • People have a right to be happy and fulfilled in their job and this impacts everything.
