Bridging the Gap Seminars 2015

Our Bridging the Gap seminars have a reputation for imparting a broad range of practical cross-cultural skills; Skills you can then use to be effective in your work, EITHER if you need to understand Indigenous ways OR, as an Indigenous worker, if you want to better understand mainstream culture.

We have developed our seminars over many years. They are designed to give you insight, confidence where needed, and you can draw on our long established experience during the Q&A sessions.

Past seminar attendees report that our seminars really do make a difference, especially when they are faced with difficult or challenging situations.

“I learned so much that is essential knowledge for us who work in Indigenous communities but it seems that governments and agencies don’t think we need any special knowledge at all”, said an NT Medic at a recent seminar.

We find that many people have so many unanswered questions when it comes to Aboriginal culture and working appropriately.

Bring your curiosity, your struggles and your questions and hear from our team of people who have lived and worked on the ground in Aboriginal communities for over 40 years.

You will find you are much better equipped to:

  •  Understand the struggles of Indigenous people across the world
  •  Have a shared and positive experience/dialogue with the Aboriginal people you engage with
  •  Effectively use newly gained personal communication and cross cultural skills and information
  •  Stayed motivated and passionate about working cross-culturally and reduce the chance of burn-out – and
  •  Assist Aboriginal people to bring about their own dreams
