Aunty Jean Receives Rave Reviews on Her Welcome to Country

Aunty Jean Williamson recently delivered a welcome to Taungurung Country at a Department of Human Services conference presented recently at Kilmore.

Aunty Jean Williamson at Conference

Here is some of the feedback from the organiser of the conference.

What an amazing woman Aunty is and you have to know that she drew everyone in the room close to her with her beautiful natural Welcome from the heart. There were a lot of people from large Organisations and Managers from the Department of Human Services who have all seen a lot of Welcome to Country's - but Aunty impressed every single one of them with her honest and sincere Welcome. I spoke with a number of the delegates from the meeting both at the conference itself as well as back here at the office yesterday and every single one of them smiled and said how amazing Aunty Jean was - hearing Aunty talk of her personal life was just so refreshing, and wow, you should have heard the roar of laughter when Aunty made a funny comment, she captivated everyone's attention.
