This highly-regarded event provides leaders from across the Australian disability services sector with analysis of national policy directions and advice on key management issues.

This year’s program features presentations from leading experts on subjects including innovative data use, brand strategy and service provision in remote communities.

Andrew Means, a world leader in using data to help the social sector improve its impact, will provide guidance on how social purpose organisations can use data, research and analytics strategically to advance their cause. Andrew is head of the US organisation beyond.uptake, Co-Founder at The Impact Lab and founder of Data Analysts for Social Good. He will speak both in a plenary session on the first day and in a half-day workshop with limited numbers on the second day. Conference delegates (or senior staff of member organisations) wishing to attend the workshop are advised to register early.

We are also thrilled to bring you Adam Ferrier, a leading Australian consumer psychologist, brand strategist and authority on behavioural economics. He is an award-winning advertising creator and founder of the agency Thinkerbell. Adam is a regular on the ABC’s Gruen series and has featured on The Project, Celebrity Apprentice and ABC Radio. Adam will enlighten, entertain and challenge you to think about what motivates consumer choice and how to communicate your brand in the new market for disability supports.
