ARPA Conference – May 2014

Delegates from IPAR will be attending the upcoming Australian Rehabilitation Providers Association (ARPA) Conference, taking place at the Sheraton on the Park Hotel, Sydney, from the 4th to 6th May 2014.

The theme of the 2014 Biennial Conference is ‘Next Practice in the Modern Workplace’, featuring international and Australian speakers to discuss:

What’s Possible? Next practice – with best practice becoming the bench mark, next practice is the step beyond, where real innovation is found.

Inspiring Business: Innovating ways and shifting our paradigms in the way we deliver services, conduct business and communicate with customers.

Generating Change: Next practice involves creative thinking and a robust analysis of what’s possible. This stream is about inspirational thinkers and researchers at the forefront of transforming abilities.

We look forward to seeing you there!
