What do we do? The short answer is whatever you need. Life is about learning and good business should include positive learning opportunities for staff, boards and members of any organisation. If you are looking to expand your knowledge on Indigenous Cultural Competency, Anti-oppression and other issues and you are 'done to death' with being lectured to, let Sharp take you to a different level of learning.
