Meet your new NDIS gurus.
Sally is our resident NDIS wonderwoman (also fondly known as our ‘pocket rocket’). Don't be disarmed by her humour, she packs a punch with her huge NDIS knowledge, intellect and energy. Sally has diverse experience across financial services, human services, B2B, B2C, for profit and for purpose industries around the world. Sally is especially passionate marketing products, services, spaces and experiences for people with a disability.
Sally is a dynamic trainer and presenter, a Certified Practicing Marketer and lecturer in Marketing at the University of Newcastle. She is a Director of the Centre for Universal Design and a past member of the NSW Disability Council. Sally was also the CEO of a disability service provider during the Hunter NDIS trial. And, she finished her Masters at Harvard (did we mention she’s dynamic?). One of Sally's three daughters, Nicky, who passed away in 2018, was an NDIS participant for four years. Sally translates her personal and professional experience into a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities for business.
Based in Newcastle, Charmaine has been working with NDIS participants since the beginning of the trial sites and has made it her quest to learn everything that she can about the scheme. Prior to this, she worked in Early Intervention for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Developmental Delay. Charmaine is the Director of Aurora Coordination and the mother of two children, the eldest of whom has autism and she is a very powerful advocate for inclusion and self management.

We want to maintain the intimacy of our face-to-face sessions and allow people to feel free to share their concerns and challenges so we’ve decided not to record the sessions. But we’ve created a recording of all the content (without any attendees) so you can catch up if you miss a session for any reason.
(Note: we will make an exception to this where someone requires the recording for accessibility reasons, but we’ll make all efforts to anonymise the content and remove sensitive information).
If your internet drops out, you’re welcome to join the same session at a later date. We’ve also made recordings of all of the content that you can watch at your leisure.
