Real People Real Choices Real Solutions Conference


Opal Cove Resort Coffs Harbour NSW October 16-18 2013

The delegates who attended the Community Care Options inaugural Real People Real Choices Real Solutions conference at Opal Cove 16-18 October have voted it a huge success.

Overwhelmingly those who came along agreed that the quality of speakers and the content of the sessions was exactly what they wanted. The mix of topics covered in keynote sessions, the panel on day one and the client stories sessions on day three were just some of the highlights people commented on.

The cocktail party provided an excellent networking opportunity for speakers and delegates alike and the Gala Dinner and Fundraiser on Thursday was such a special evening to be a part of.

To each and every one who participated thank you on behalf of our organisation, our clients, the delegates and more broadly the aged care and disability services sector. It is events such as ours that can assist in creating awareness for what we do and the challenges the sector is facing. Conferences such as the Real People Real Choices Real Solutions are the first step in identifying issues, creating opportunity and inspiring solutions for the future good of all service providers and clients.

This quote from one of the delegates is indicative of the general vibe “Great venue, topics relevant, feeling motivated to succeed.”

The success of our inaugural event has encouraged us to consider hosting another similar event in the future.
