The Cultural Connection Code is one of Australia’s leading Aboriginal Consulting and Coaching Companies.  We specialise in creating the cultural connection needed to accelerate business and leadership in organisations and communities across Australia. 

We are so excited our paths have crossed and thank you for taking the time to find out more about how we could possibly work together to create good things!  

Co-Founded by Kia Dowell (a Gija Women from Warmun Community in the East Kimberley of Western Australia) and Chantal Harris, THE CULTURAL CONNECTION CODE is a creative, collaborative and intelligent social purpose, for-profit consultancy.  

The good news for you is that our consulting, coaching and trainings are all infused with “THE CODE” - a carefully crafted combination of neuroscience and Traditional Aboriginal wisdom that accelerates business and leadership whenever corporate culture and Aboriginal Culture are merged together. 

We are all about genuine social change through sustainable economic development to give people new choices and a foundation of independence for their own futures!

Our Team is passionate and deeply committed to working with Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal organisations and their communities to create the special kind of cultural connection that not only encourages, but accelerates, business and leadership development.  We honestly believe that we can all contribute to positive social change from our economic opportunities in a way that shows respect and cultivates achievement through community and commercial endeavours. 

What makes us different from other consulting companies is not necessarily what we do but how we do it … and, of course, the amazing people we have on our team!  

You will be happy to know that we are a majority Aboriginal owned company and 90% of our team are Aboriginal people who are based in their own regions, highly skilled and trusted in their respective fields of expertise and connected to the aspirations of their own Communities.
