Abstract

Piri Puroto is an entertainer in the Cook Islands. The Cook Islands are located near New Zealand. Piri''s show is accessible by KIWIS by boat to the islands. Piri is a one man show, entailing climbing up coconut trees in seventeen seconds, peeling and milking coconuts with his bare hands, plaiting objects, cooking meats under the ground, and playing with fire, among other things. Piri is a real entrepreneur, organised among the various hotels in the Cook Islands to perform every night from Monday to Thursday and Friday matinees. If people cannot make it to his show, he will come and pick them up in his own car and bring them to his show. Also, he and his wife began a picnic outing for foreigners and travellers, teaching them how to live off nature. The main problems facing optimistic Piri in this case are marketing and communications and customer service, i.e. how to get Canadians to the Cook Islands and to his show. Also important is the small scope/focus, i.e. Piri must stay small; he''s not international. Piri loves being number one, and if he tried being international he would probably fail.
