What

ABM Uncensored is a staple networking opportunity at ABM and allows you to connect meaningfully with other ABM Members.

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 prevent it. The goal of ABM Uncensored is to prepare more productive business interactions among ABM Members.

How

ABM Uncensored participants examine topics in a talking circle and engage 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.

“ABM Uncensored was a space to be vulnerable and to push past barriers and misconceptions of doing business with Indigenous peoples. It was a space of respect, of learning, and of courage. ABM Uncensored made my experience in the following days more worthwhile.”  Jordan Ewart, Saskatchewan Trucking Association
