Presenting gives you an opportunity to:

  • influence practice
  • build relationships with others in the sector

Memorable presentations are:

  • engaging
  • useful for the audience
  • supported by evidence

Can you do this? Of course you can!

Mentoring available!

Never presented before?  Want to know how to include a person with disability as co-presenter?   We will support you to develop your ideas for a presentation – contact Jonathan Goodwin at  to be connected with someone who can help.

 Draft presentation streams:

  • Individualised funding
  • Health
  • Employment
  • Supported decision making
  • Community participation
  • Transitions
  • Aging / Older adults
  • Legal issues
