For people who give a damn about the care industry

For those of us who are ready to turn passion into action 


We all have different journeys. The journey of a care leader is no different.

The care industry is in need of leaders (just like you) who want to support each other, 'do' new ways of thinking, and lead our communities. 

Join us in Melbourne, Sydney, and Perth as we explore the journey of your local care leaders in an intimate setting. 
How do others 'do'? How do we support each other? How have others become leaders?
Be inspired and connect with those who are passionate about our industry's future.

Each event is limited to 30 people only.
Tickets are $30p.p
Early bird tickets ($20p.p) are available but extremely limited.
