I find the conference communication very professional, culturally appropriate and helpful. I sensed the high communication skill – John Whop, Torres Strait Islands

The coordination and organisation was excellent and staff were professional and helpful - Anthony Cain

You guys did an awesome job, we really enjoyed the conference from the workshops on Monday and Tuesday to the pre-conference drinks to the conference proper. Great food (very important to Maori people), good venue, good 'wairua' - the spirit of the people who were there - Arapine Walker, Kura Kaupapa Maori, New Zealand

It was really good for us to discover the great diversity in language revival/maintenance situations around Australia and overseas - Rebecca Youdale, Nyamba Buru Yawuru

Being a relatively new employee at VACL, the Conference gave me a great opportunity to listen to and learn from the ideas of delegates, presenters and fellow stallholders – Jenny Gibson, Victorian Aboriginal Corporation for Languages

The conference was valuable on all levels - the strong emphasis on grassroot realities and community development I think made the conference an education in competency based training as opposed to text book training - Julie Walker, Wangka Maya Pilbara Aboriginal Language Centre

It was great to see what other communities are doing and other presenters. We are hopeful to present at the next Puliima - Michelle Jacquelin-Furr, Playful Beginnings Aboriginal Corporation

Great ideas to bring back to the office and into classroom and community situations - Gareth Seymour, Māori Language Commission

The ability to share my observation of other language successes will assist me in training other staff and planning and providing relevant activities for various programs in my community - Tessa Atto, Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre

My highlight was the coming together of language activists and workers to promote, discuss, support, raise the profile of Australian languages - Virginia Westwood, Murdoch Uni - Madjulla Inc

One of my highlights was having my kids participate in a presentation and using their language in a meaningful way - Lele Sanderson, Inhaadi Adnyamathanha Ngawarla

The Talent evening was fantastic. Also very inspired by the keynote speaker Daryl Baldwin from the Myaamia Centre – Brooke Joy, Playful Beginnings Aboriginal Corporation
