Episode 64

Play episode

Host Mundanara Bayles is guided by Aboriginal Terms of Reference which is the accumulated knowledge that Aboriginal people developed over the tens of thousands of years of living in this land, now known as Australia.

Relationships are at the core of Aboriginal Culture and Society and in our whole history of living in this country we never invaded our neighbours.

An Aboriginal Terms of Reference introduction is based on “Who you are and not what you do”, this way of introduction has been practiced by Aboriginal people since the first sunrise. From an Aboriginal perspective this way of introduction reinforces our humaness, we are much more than our job titles.

This episode is proudly sponsored by Indigenous Business Australia who serves, partners and invests with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who want to own their own future.

On episode 65 of the podcast I interview my third guest of the IBA partnership series. I yarn with Kabi Kabi and Birri man Isaac Harrison, an Indigenous Entrepreneur with a background in renewables and marketing. Since founding and successfully exiting Bunjil Energy in Melbourne, he now resides on his Grandfathers land here on Kabi Kabi/Gubbi Gubbi country, QLD.

Isaac now spends his time consulting to other businesses and occasionally dropping an episode here and there on his podcast Deadly Discussions. In addition to this Isaac plays Yidaki for a house band called Rivertribe. You can find the podcast and the band on Spotify.

With business interests all up the East Coast, Isaac is always on the move. When not busy working, he spends his time with his wife, and two children and their pugalier. Isaac tells us about his experience attending the inaugural IBA Futures Forum and his 50 year vision for the Indigenous business sector. A really interesting yarn!
