I have collaborated with David Liddiard and Andrea Harms for much of the past decade and watched them build impressive networks that will help change the social fabric of Australia and establish a much brighter future for all of our children. Aboriginal elders, whole communities, schools, educators, corporations and government representatives have been connected in innovative and highly effective programs. I see CorporateConnect.AB as a vital part of Community Building.Dr Jeff McMullen AM,
The community‐based projects are the most evident demonstration of the commitment of CorporateConnect.AB (CCAB) to sustainable business development initiatives. Our company has also made a commitment to at least one of these, and we see this as an opportunity to play a role in supporting indigenous economic development as it aligns with our core business. CorporateConnect.AB (CCAB) understands the issues in communities which impact on and hinder economic enterprise, and they are playing a strategic role in assisting community in overcoming issues of lack of skills and expertise by engaging the corporate sector to develop relationships with specific communities, send mentors and skill share.Alf Capito,
Compass Group has worked with David and his team for almost two years now. As an individual we are really impressed with the way in which CorporateConnect.AB has diversified it?s business services and products to enable us to align our intent to support Indigenous participation objectives in mutually beneficial ways. At the forefront we are strongly supporting the CCAB Indigenous designed coffee cups, but are continually working on other core product developments that represent exciting opportunities for our business.
David, is without doubt, an incredibly passionate advocate for Indigenous people in Australia and we as a business admire the ways in which he is able to draw others into the same space.
His cultural sense, his dedication to the development of Australian indigenous business coupled with his network of professional relationships in this regard, is highly valued by us.Shaun Hodgins,

He is very passionate and energetic, qualities that really impact those he comes into contact with. Highly recommendedBruce McQualter,
Our experience of working with CCAB was very positive. They clearly demonstrated a high level of understanding of indigenous Australia, the issues, culture and community dynamics as well as the required tasks needed to be delivered. They had in place made sure that all stakeholders were well informed about the progress of the activity, utilizing an inclusive approach which involved a range of community, agencies and local organisations as part of the planning and participation. The schedule of reporting was adhered to, timely and of real quality that met the terms of reference outlined. We were impressed with their organizational capacity, cultural and community sensitivity and professionalism.Felicity Taylor-Edwards,
