1st National NDIS Conference at Pullman King George Park Hotel in Brisbane

ICS Australia offers exciting opportunity for carers and peoples living with a disability to attend the 1st National NDIS Conference at Pullman King George Park Hotel in Brisbane on December 11-13, 2018.

ICS Australia and L’Accor Group of Hotels have negotiated a competitive rate with various 5-star venues for the price of 4 star costs for all our 2019-2020 conferences.
A change in regulations has meant we have had to shift our event from Brisbane Marriot Hotel to the Pullman Brisbane King George Square Hotel. Our new venue, the Pullman Brisbane King George Square Hotel is Brisbane’s largest and most versatile conference hotel with easy access to the city’s major attractions, as well as buses, ferries and trains via nearby Central and Roma St stations. The Pullman Brisbane King George Square Hotel also has reduced mobility rooms, wheelchair access and reduced mobility facilities which is more suited for conference participants.

Furthermore, an added incentive for the NDIS conference is the one-off 2 registrations for the price of 1, which is ideal for those delegates who need a support worker or carers to attend and be with them during the conference. These opportunities effectively makes the conference, except its travel component, more than half of the original cost to attend. The conference agenda is now finalised with great line up of deadly speakers from all throughout Australia, namely:

Dr. John Gilroy & Lee Ryall of University of Sydney

Loretta Kingston-Brown, Senior Manager ECEI of Intereach

Evelyn Mackay & Susan Stanford of WA Individualised Services (WAiS)

Jillian Paull, NDIA Branch Manager, ATSI Service Improvement

Libby Massey, Director of Research & Education at the MJD Foundation

Denyse Wilcox & Taki Peeke of IDEA Specialist Services IHC New Zealand

Mark Baigent, CEO of Early Childhood Early Intervention Victoria

Heidi Sturk, Deputy Director of QUT’s Centre for Children’s Health Research

Dr Clare Townsend of Synapse, Griffith & JCU University

Dr Paul White of Department of Communities (Disability Services), Specialist Disability Services Assessment & Outreach Team, Brisbane, Queensland

Ron Weatherall of the National Disability Insurance Agency

Sheryl Lawnton of Charleville and Western areas Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Community Health

Perrin Whimpress, Trainer/Compliance Coordinator for the Cairns Regional Community Development and Employment ATSI Corporation

It is so pleasing to see both government and non-government organisations partnering, participating and sharing knowledge & strategies in an atmosphere conducive to stimulating new ideas within communities. Australia has a wealth of talent in our First Nations communities, all striving to further enhance the quality of life and well-being for Indigenous peoples nationwide. It just goes to show we do not have to re-invent the wheel to succeed but share our experiences and exchange ideas and information which goes in line with the philosophy of the conference of strength through inter-agency cooperation at a local, state and national level.
