Dhinawan, a descendant of Gamillaroi Bigambul tribe, AKA Mick Baker, is one of Indigenous Australia's most engaging, articulate and entertaining public speakers and one of its busiest cultural ambassadors.

Known for his spontaneous, straight-from-the-heart cultural commentary, Dhinawan's keynote speaking style has attracted high profile organisations such as Telstra, Foxtel, Oxfam, Australia Council of Educational Leaders, The King's School, Fosters Group Limited, Quicksilver, and Tourism Australia.

When not spearheading anti-bullying programs in primary schools and painting boards for pro surfer Kelly Slater, Dhinawan travels regularly overseas to perform in the UK, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Scotland, and Italy.

In recognition of his work, Dhinawan received the 2010 Premier's Encouragement Award for Excellence in Aboriginal Communities in 'Education, Knowledge & Learning'.

As an educator, Dhinawan is a respected cultural ambassador and adheres to the NSW Aboriginal Education Policy guidelines. His teaching schedule includes school children of all ages, as well as students and teachers at some of Australia's leading educational institutions.
