Testimonials for Natasha Short
Natasha Short speaks from the heart, authentically from a place of deep knowledge and experience. Inspiring, entrepreneurial, and eloquent, Natasha will deepen your understanding of indigenous culture, connect you to the issues of the day and most importantly, engage you in the conversations that are imperative if we are to prioritise the 'greater good' for all Australians.
Natasha is one of the most gifted communicators that l've ever met. She draws from deep wells of personal experience, decades of community development work and the many Kimberley Elders that guide and advise her. Her presentation (in any forum/format) is compelling and authentic. I highly recommend her for any organisation interested in understanding the real and tangible steps they can take to support social and economic empowerment for First Australians.
Thank you so much for presenting at our International Women's Day event on Sunday. Uou're an incredible speaker and your speech was thought provoking and empowering. It gave me goosebumps listening to you.
