National Leaders' Forums are designed as interactive one-day strategic sessions, and are aimed at CEO and management personnel.
They are a chance to meet with the board and staff, and to address topical sector issues and developments with colleagues from across the sector.
Forums are members only.
Traditionally, we host two forums per year.
“The one day forum is perfect…Worth the investment.”
Date: 2 May 2019
Time: 9am to 4.30pm, followed by networking drinks 4.30pm to 6.00pm
Venue: QT Canberra Hotel
Over the past few years, Disability Employment Australia’s Leaders’ Forums have been more important than ever with a focus on the future of DES, the intersection of DES and the NDIS and, even more than that, the future of disability employment. The May 2019 DEA members-only Leaders’ Forum again presents as one of the most important gatherings the sector will be offered in the first half of this year. Make sure you bring your team along.
We will be 10 months into the new DES by the time the DEA Leaders Forum takes place!
The March stars milestone will have passed and we will be on our way to the first public release following the June stars
Significant actions to boost employment supports in the NDIA are finally taking place (and the DES sector is critical to its success)
The jobactive review is in full swing – the DES sector must influence the review to ensure jobseekers with disability are assessed to the appropriate program
And then there is the small matter of a federal election due in May
There is more than enough policy and program activity for us to have a deep and engaged set of presentations and discussions, which is what the DEA Leaders’ Forum is all about!
DEA is ever mindful of how to improve employment outcomes, how to continually improve (evidence-based) best practice across the sector and how to collaborate in a competitive marketplace. Our members, who represent the best of the DES sector, will gather for this important forum to listen and debate, to take note and to challenge and most importantly, to network.
