2010 Expos

Corporate Culcha, the Australian Government and the National Rugby League (NRL) proudly presented four Employment Expos in 2010 aimed at connecting NSW Indigenous youth with future employment and careers. The Expos enabled Indigenous job seekers and future job seekers to meet, talk to and connect with a wide variety of local and national employers on the day and provide them with the exciting opportunity to mingle with their NRL heroes.

The follow-up to the Expo’s is and was fundamental to the success of the event itself. Dare to Lead schools had their Aboriginal Education Officers and Careers Counselors liaise with individual students to ensure that careers ideas are matched by subject choices and possible work experience opportunities in the field of interest. Equally, consistent follow-up with Industry participants was also a crucial point of success and unique to events of this kind.

Each Expo was pre-ceded by a Gala Dinner held as a fund-raising opportunity for local Indigenous Cultural development programs. NRL players were involved in the VIP dinner the night prior to the Expo (one seated at each table) and helped announce the Expo program's range of activities. A diverse range of options were included in both the Sponsorship and Exhibitor packages.
