This session is designed to provide Native Title Holders and Indigenous corporations’ insight into the opportunities and offerings of the Indigenous Land Corporation and Indigenous Business Australia. The session will explore the development of projects on Indigenous held land through the first-hand experiences of Native Title Holders and collaborators, using two case studies: the ILC's Port Smith Bird Park acquisition on behalf of Karajarri Traditional Lands Association (KTLA) and IBA and ILC's project with Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC) for the strategic development of North Stradbroke Island.

Facilitated by independent Chair, Joe Hedger from Ernst & Young Indigenous Sector Practice, the session aims to equip audience participants with a sound understanding of the life cycle of land based investment projects that generate economic, social, environmental and cultural benefits for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
