software development company E-Bisglobal celebrated a significant milestone and turning point in its business journey in Naidoc Week 2020: its transition to an Aboriginal owned business.
The theme of Naidoc Week
was “Always Was, Always Will
Be”, which acknowledges and celebrates Australia’s history, which dates back thousands of generations, not just the 250 years since the arrival of Europeans.
The theme was particularly significant for E-Bisglobal founder and executive director Paul Freeman, who discovered
was the last remaining native Australian woman in the Liverpool district in the 1880s, and that his family belonged
to the Cabrogal Clan of the Dharug Nation, which occupied land along the Georges River for 30,000 years.
The ceremony was also attended by three generations of the Freeman family, including Freeman’s daughters, Emma Powney and Catherine Gibson, E-Bisglobal’s sales and marketing director, along with his grandchildren.
Gibson and the three children raised the Aboriginal flag, which
takes pride of place beside the Australian flag outside the entrance to the premises at Tuggerah Business Park.
Noting the significant milestone, Freeman said, “Being formally recognised as an indigenous company will be an enormous benefit to our long- established government clients who are required, as part of
the Reconciliation Action Plan, to spend a percentage of their outsourced project funds on indigenous businesses.”
Freeman is planning to retire from the business but remain chairman of the board. 21
