This is a critical time for the NDIS and for every person it impacts. The NDIS is doubling the national investment in disability support and as it expands to additional sites, the industry needs to establish how it’s working in its current sites, with a keen focus on all the key players in the system; consumers, carers, service providers, government bodies and key associations. The 8th Annual National Disability Summit will review the progress and initiatives in supporting people with disabilities and their families to maximise independence and social and economic participation by creating greater choice.

Marketing Yourself into the NDIS Future
Be tactical, consistent and active.
An industry savvy, interactive presentation delivered by members of the Professional Practice Academy Team, Dr Jodie Goldney, and Ms Jackie O’Connor.
The Professional Practice Academy (PPA) is Australia’s largest industry led professional organisation for the community services sector in Australia and beyond.
Bring your real-life marketing and social media concerns, and have our team work with you on-the-spot to create social media storyboards, write blogs, and create marketing frameworks for your organisation in the new world. Limited to 18 places.
- The workshop begins with a brief overview of social media platforms, addressing how your business can best interact with and leverage those.
- We also touch on email marketing, and explore how you can enhance engagement with your audience.
- From here, we will move to providing an overview template of our unique social-media strategy and process.
- Using an interactive approach, we will then work with individuals and small groups to massage your key messages into this logic.
- Our methodology facilitates a regular, and agile social media push-out across all media platforms. It also moves away from rigid strategies which are inadequate to the needs of a rapidly changing environ, or assume that every platform suits every business.
