CCBR Business Review

13 Tuggerah-based print management, pro- curement and software development com- pany, E-Bisglobal celebrated a significant milestone and turning point in their business journey on Monday, November 9 with their transition to an Aboriginal owned business. The 30-year old family business marked the occasion, aptly held during NAIDOC Week 2020, with a flag raising and tradi- tional smoking ceremony conducted by Darkinjung Elder, Uncle Gavi Duncan and attended by staff and a number of invited guests, including Member for Wyong, David Harris, MP and members of the Barang Regional Alliance. Speaking at the event, Mr Harris com- mended Mr Freeman for taking this impor- tant step to becoming an Aboriginal com- pany and, in so doing, raising much needed awareness within the Central Coast and broader communities. Mr Harris’ portfolio includes Aboriginal Affairs and Treaty, for which he is Shadow Minister.

Mr Freeman said, “We aim to work closely with Bara Barang through their employ- ment, training and career pathway pro- grams, which connect young Aboriginal people on the Central Coast with the right employers.
