Working with Indigenous Employees – Open Workshop

Apr 13th 2015

Keogh Bay delivered its first Working with Indigenous Employees program open to the public on March 31st, 2015. The program was delivered by Sharyn Derschow and Matt Wrigley from Keogh Bay.

The program was well subscribed with participants from government, oil and gas, mining as well as two accountants, a historian and a university researcher. They were a particularly knowledgable and experienced group and took the discussion in many new and interesting directions.

Their feedback was overwhelmingly positive and constructive. Here are some quotes from the feedback forms:

  • “Thank you so much for being so open and willing to answer all of my questions!”
  • “The booklet is a great resource to take away!”
  • “The program was very good – A, A, A, A, A, A”
  • “Learning how many people feel that they have to “act” to fit in was very useful”
  • “Sharyn just nailed it, I have never heard those things put so clearly before – things I experience in daily life.” (from an Aboriginal participant).

If you were not able to attend this time, don’t worry! You will get another chance.
On the back of this success, Keogh Bay plans to run a further public workshop on Thursday the 14th of May, 2015. Stay tuned for updates or contact Matt Wrigley at or mobile 0419763101, for more information.
