NDS and McGrathNicol are pleased to invite you to a breakfast briefing to discuss identifying, gathering and preparing information for Disability Royal Commission information requests.

The briefing will be held from 7am (for a 7:30am start) to 9:00am on Wednesday, 5 February 2020 at Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. 

A light buffet breakfast will be available, consisting of fruit, yoghurt, wraps, pastries, juice, coffee and tea.

Darren Hopkins, Partner, McGrathNicol, will be joined by Alison Choy Flannigan from Hall & Wilcox legal, a service provider prospective from Centacare, and Henry Newton from NDS to discuss and offer practical advice on:

  • Understanding the key events and dates of likely interest in relation to your organisation
  • Identifying the types of information, the format of information and the physical and electronic location of the information
  • Preparing your Information Map and addressing any gaps
  • Steps in capturing, preparing and analysing your information in a Master Database to support the work of your legal advisors
  • The strict protocols involved in supplying complete information to the Royal Commission on time and in the format required
  • The relevant roles and responsibilities within your organisation
  • The value of scenario-planning to test in advance your response to any Royal Commission Notice to Produce information

We invite you to come along, ask questions and participate in this valuable conversation. This event will be of interest to executives preparing their organisation for the Disability Royal Commission.
