We are committed to helping Queenslanders learn more about consumer issues. Learning about these issues is the best way to protect yourself and understand your rights. Our staff are happy to present as guest speakers to community groups, businesses, organisations and schools on a range of topics.

We have offices throughout Queensland and are happy to consider requests from regional areas. This includes visits to your town as part of our Outreach program.

All our presentations are offered free of charge.
