The Best Head for  the Hills Retreat 2017

Our annual Disability Employment Think Tank will be again held by the Yarra River, Warburton. Open to a limited number of participants, we'll be examining the theme "Advancing Employment and Provider Transition in the New NDIS / DES Paradigm". Last year's was an outstanding success with considerable outcomes achieved. This year's promises to build on those outcomes and generate new directions and innovative solutions. A relaxed open vibe supported by working in the open by the river fosters inclusive innovative rich discussion.


What do you need to know right now?


Date: 23-26th October inclusive (we meet on the Monday night, before getting busy on Tuesday morning).


Venue: Oscars on the Yarra, Warburton, VIC.


Accomodation: Maximum room capacity of 22 rooms on site. Twin share or single at your cost.


Meals: At your cost and included in your accommodation pricing (we've arranged a great meal package and the food is very, very good). We cover the cost of a BBQ lunch on the last day, as thank you for your contribution to the discussions.


What to bring: a comfortable outdoor chair if you wish, an open mind, a hat and a willingness to share and discuss ideas.

The USA Study Tour is done and dusted for 2017. Suffice to say it was an outstanding, if not exhausting adventure. We've been releasing bits and pieces from it on our Facebook page, but nothing captures the real learning and relationships built like being there.

We're looking at repeating it in 2018, so stay tuned for updates when we get over this years activities. 2018 is likely to be East Coast based.
