If you are interested in delivering person-centred disability services with high client satisfaction, great jobs for your employees, and a solid organisational performance within tight budgets and prices, this workshop is for you.

Individualised social care schemes like the NDIS have proven to be a big challenge for providers, but also a catalyst for innovation. With the need to become more effective and efficient in delivering person-centred services, providers look for delivery models that help them achieve this while also staying true to their values and be good employers to their employees.

Since 2015, NDS has been researching and sharing knowledge of successful international ‘high-performance models’ that achieve the above and supporting disability service providers to test their own high-performance models.

Hear from experts on successful international high-performance models like Buurtzorg from the Netherlands, Wellbeing teams in the UK and from Australian disability service providers who are testing and trialling their own models inspired by these international examples. You will also get the chance to work with them to consider how you could implement these 'high performance' models in your organisation.

Presenters include:

  • Rosie Lawn, Avivo
  • Kathy Wonderley, ACES
  • Yumi Stamet & Alan Hough, National Disability Services
  • Scott Thompson, Google

Scott is employed at Google Australia in customer solutions and innovation across Asia Pacific. He will present on how Google creates a high performance team culture, how leaders lead in this culture and how performance measurement supports this culture. He will also share some of the innovation that has come out of Google's high performance teams that could be of benefit to people with disability.

Who should attend?

  • CEOs
  • Senior managers leading change in their organisations
  • HR managers
  • Service delivery managers
