I love to promote Australia's Entrepreneurs and First Nations communities at home or abroad. If you would like an entrepreneur who is working hard on a grass-roots level to make a massive difference in our community, and did it with no financial support from his family or network (self-made and down-to-earth), please fill out the form to your right and let's discuss further.

P.S. 100% of the speaking fee goes towards closing the economic disparities between Indigenous and non-Indigenous in Australians. Barayamal is a registered charity (ABN 136 1848 7139) and donations over $2 are tax-deductible.
