Speaker on Aged Care & Disability Care
Our goal is to help raise the standards of care in Australia by sharing our knowledge on the areas of opportunity and improvement with care sector providers, professional services advisers, sector bureaucrats, and invested stakeholders.
A research report prepared for Australia’s Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety (2018 – 2021), comparing the care systems of 22 countries, found Australia scored poorly on a significant number of comparisons.
With the release of the Royal Commission’s recommendations in 2021 and the Tune Review recommendations on the NDIS in 2019, there are numerous opportunities for sector stakeholders to raise Australia’s international standing in the provision of aged and disability care to its citizens.
In our more than three decades in the sector, we have worn various hats and speak from the experience of:
Running a national care business
Building a national not-for-profit
Lobbying all levels of government
Analysing the impacts of legislative change on all operators in the sector.
Benefit from our breadth of experience, our current work on the frontline, our monitoring of legislative developments, and our ability to connect with audiences.
Range of Speaking Engagements
Care sector updates, presenting sector changes and their impact to a range of stakeholder groups including financial advisers, care accredited financial advisers, accountants, estate planners and estate lawyers.
Industry conferences, with experience presenting at CPA Australia Conferences and financial planning industry groups.
Professional service firm conferences, with experience presenting at national accounting firm conferences.
Employee forums, presenting helpful information and guidance to employees shouldering care responsibilities and those likely to have that role in the future.
Finance Industry & Community Groups
Our message is that the key to quality living in your senior years is to plan ahead and get your affairs in order well before a life event occurs. We discuss the importance of planning for your own ageing needs and accommodation, having the hard conversations, and getting your legal documents in order.

"I wanted to touch base with you now that the FBA "NSW Celebrate 17" is done to say a huge thank you!
With the current absence of a NSW State Manager, you have taken such a lead and been hugely involved in the formal part of the evening as MC. Those of us in Head Office who have been overseeing the event 'from afar' are incredibly grateful of your 'over and above' support and contribution.
I've had feedback from Alex, the Swaab team, and participants that it was a great event and a wonderful way to finish up a very busy year! I really did appreciate all of your support, it was invaluable!"

Family Business Australia
"Thank you so much for coming to present at our annual Fiducian Client Briefing today.
There were over 200 clients in the room and the overwhelming feedback was that your presentation on how to access both home and residential care, was both informative and relevant.
They were particularly interested in your explanation of the changes to home care that will come into force in February next year, and your tips and recommendations for navigating the complex aged care system."
- Jacqui Irwin, Financial Advisor
Fiducian Financial Services
"As a trusted advisor to many retirement aged clients, it is important to always have a solution to people’s problems. Sometimes your own and sometimes by referral to others.
My business is substantially family business advisory, so it was lovely to hear the genesis of both DIAL-AN-ANGEL and DR Care Solutions stories when you spoke the other day at Hall & Wilcox Lawyers.
I am now comfortable that I know where to go when it comes to review and implementation of in home care solutions when the need arises."
