Our new Brisbane CBD office had its official opening on 9 September 2022.
We were privileged to have received a Welcome to Country by Songwoman Maroochy representing the Turrbal People, Traditional Owners of Brisbane. Maroochy is an accomplished opera singer who has performed at the United Nations in New York. Maroochy’s Welcome to Country included a traditional song, a detailed cultural awareness on the Turrbal people and surrounding tribes’ history, a beautiful rendition of the Australian National Anthem in Turrbal language, and a blessing song in Turrbal language. It was a wonderful experience, with many saying Maroochy’s performance gave them goosebumps. For some of our overseas-born staff, it was their first Welcome to Country.
Karl Goulding and Alex Massignani cut the ribbon to officially open the office.
