Queensland conference banner


Early-bird registrations are open for NDS’s Queensland Conference 2020, Futures in Disability, 7 and 8 May. 

The former paradigm of disability service provision in Australia has changed forever, creating unprecedented impetus for transformation. Demands upon service providers are at an all-time high to adapt business models, create alternative services, meet increasing demand, reimagine what is possible and create new visions for organisations, while simultaneously improving quality and safety of services for all people with disability. 

National Disability Services invites you to join with leading local, national and global thinkers and participate in a critical dialogue about how to work across multiple horizons and align our business strategies and systems with our visions for change. 
Some speaker highlights include:

  • Inaugural UNESCO Chair of Futures Studies and world leading futurist, Professor Sohail Inayatullah
  • Emeritus Professor Lesley Chenoweth, The Hopkins Centre | Menzies Health Institute Queensland, Griffith University
  • Dr Ken Baker AM, Strategic Advisor Employment, National Disability Insurance Agency
  • Professor Bruce Bonyhady, Exec Chair and Director of Melbourne Disability Institute, leading the establishment of the new National Disability Research Partnership
  • Leading Expert in Intellectual Disability Medicine, Queensland Centre for Intellectual and Development Disability, Professor Nicholas Lennox
  • National Quality and Safeguarding Commission, Inaugural Commissioner, Graeme Head
  • Independent Expert on NDIS economic policy, UWA, Professor David Gilchrist
  • Queensland Human Rights Commission, Inaugural Human Rights Commissioner, Scott McDougal

Register now to participate in additional conference sessions including the Disability Royal Commission Breakfast and the NDIS Rural and Remote Service Provision: The cost of doing business. Limited places available for these two sessions.

Visit the National Disability Services conference page to access the Preliminary Program; to register for the conference; and for event details.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Queensland Conference on 7 and 8 May 2020 at Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre
