Connect is Supply Nation’s annual flagship event for the Indigenous business sector. The event brings together Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses, corporate organisations and government departments to foster strategic opportunities and celebrate the success of the sector.


All industries have been forced to navigate the challenges associated with the pandemic, however as restrictions ease, I was so happy to be apart of the first ‘in-person’ Connect event since 2019.


This year, Supply Nation transformed the format of Connect into a one-day event focused on networking opportunities and showcasing the calibre of diverse Indigenous businesses in May 2022.


The official theme for Connect 2022 was ‘Reconnecting’ – Join me as I do just that, with over 30 guests in a face-to-face environment at the Indigenous Business Tradeshow.
