How does it work?

The Essentials series are online, live-streamed masterclasses. Each session is interactive. We’ll be listening to your comments, concerns and feedback. Let's use the power of our ‘hive mind’.

Tickets include ongoing access to an on-demand platform, so if you can’t make a session, recordings and complementary resources will be available for 3 months. Please note: you will need to register to access the on-demand platform.

Who should attend?

The series is specifically for middle managers, senior managers, and CEOs in the disability sector who want to stay up-to-date on key issues and emerging themes, and the work underway to address them. More than 500 delegates are expected.

The Essentials series is designed with flexibility in mind, so that even the busiest managers in our sector can stay on the pulse.

Our first session will be an opportunity to hear from Laurie Leigh, Interim CEO, NDS and other members of NDS’s management team, on the hot topics that are keeping providers awake at night. NDS is pleased to offer this session FREE to all NDS Members, Organisational Associates and Industry Supporters when any other briefing or masterclass ticket is purchased (one briefing ticket per transaction).
