What People Are Saying
This conference was both timely and highly relevant to our current needs. Knowledgeable speakers and intensive content made it value for money.Chief Executive Officer, casa Central Australia
The NDIS especially the SDA in principle, I am sure one day will be one of Australia’s proudest initiatives. However, right now it is a minefield due to its infancy, complexity and uncertainty surrounding the long term structure.
