The Yalagan Story.
Our Story.

Our success comes from our ability to deliver.

From People and Training through to Mentoring and Print, we deliver robust, viable solutions to businesses across Australia.

Since our first training packages, Yalagan Group has undergone a period of rapid learning, achievement and growth.

Yalagan Group is a leading Supply Nation certified Indigenous group of companies and was born in 2016 from the meeting of Yuin man, Nathan Martin and Sean Wilson. When paired as mentor and mentee in Tribal Warrior’s ‘Never Going Back Program’ the two discovered a shared vision to create a business that would make a difference for the community. Having just been released from prison, Nathan was determined to not only change the course of his own life, but to build something that would provide that same opportunity to his community.

Since that fateful meeting, Nathan and Sean have worked tirelessly to grow Yalagan to what it is today – a leading national Registered Training Organisation and Group Training Organisation. With a core mission of creating economic and social prosperity through Indigenous lead training, education and mentoring, the business has achieved significant success and earned a reputation for quality service delivery during its last 6 years in business. Nathan himself going on to win Young Indigenous Entrepreneur of the Year for Supply Nation in 2021.

After many years operating and delivering quality training and mentoring programs across Australia Sean, Nathan and the Wilson family bring their knowledge of this unique market to their clients through their ongoing partnerships and Yalagan Group as their driving force.

In 2023 Yalagan Group welcomed our new CEO and partner Peter Lett. Peter has worked around Australia having owned and operated a strong business over last four years, was a perfect match for our growing community.

Peter Lett is a proud Muruwari/Yuin man and respected business and community leader. His career has grown over 20 years, and during that time he has shared and led in many opportunities that have empowered others in their own journey, it was this that inspired the team to bring him into the Yalagan family. With a shared passion and commitment to improve the lives of Indigenous and Non-Indigenous people alike Peter, Nathan and Sean got to work.

With strong ties to his country and an unmatched passion for creating opportunities for our communities, Peter is a tangible asset in increasing Yalagan’s future growth and success across our thriving industries.

Together, we work towards improving the wellbeing of those we come in contact with, through empowerment, support and trust. We ensure that we’re giving our people the resources, encouragement, training and care that they need to better their lives and provide stability for future generations.

As a company, we’re committed to championing our people.
