Our Team

Banaam Kyle

Kyle Slabb is a Gudjingburra Bundjalung descendant from the Far north Coast of NSW. He has been involved in cultural consultancy and education for more than 20 years.

Working on developing young indigenous leaders for the last 10 years has taken him and his team all over the country, from urban aboriginal communities to some of the most remote.

Kyle believes that every aboriginal person has a right to a cultural education, and the value of that education is a huge asset to their communities, also their employees, and our society at large.

This belief has been at the heart of developing many initiatives and businesses over the years. Successfully applying these cultural frameworks in many areas including Cultural Tourism Operations, Manufacturing and Leadership has been central to Kyle’s many successful initiatives.
