What

ABM Uncensored is your first networking opportunity at ABM and allows you to connect meaningfully with other delegates.

It is a dialogue forum to foster interpersonal exchange, creating a deeper understanding of each other’s roles, backgrounds, priorities and motivations. This enhanced knowledge supports productive business development on the trade show floor.

Why

ABM Uncensored is designed to take the conversation below the surface of political correctness in business negotiations and is based on the belief that differences contribute to the success of a relationship rather than preventing it.

How

ABM Uncensored participants examine topics in a talking circle, engaging in courageous conversations with the explicit goal to change the way Indigenous and non-Indigenous people live and do good business together.

This workshop is not for the faint of heart. The dialogue can be disturbing. Cringing is a part of the experience.
