MUCH loved celebrity Andrew Daddo will MC Australia’s largest disability event, the 2015 possABLE IDEAS Expo at Penrith Panthers in Sydney on July 24-25.
Andrew will entertain the Expo crowd on Friday with his wit and warmth as he introduces the many speakers taking centre stage, including keynote speaker, the incredible Rachel Callander as she talks about the Super Power Baby Project.
Rachel has turned the heartbreak of losing her daughter to the disabilities that shaped her short, yet powerful, life into a photographic art book that provides inspiration to thousands.
The Expo will also see Andrew facilitate a panel discussion on the subject of Dreams v Reality. For many people with a disability, a discussion on dreams and how to make them a reality is especially poignant when others have determined many of their dreams and realities.
Panelists will discuss their own dreams and the steps they took to make them a reality and how all people living with disability now have the power to do the same with the changes and empowerment that the NDIS will bring.
NSW Minister for Disability Services, the Hon John Ajaka MLC, will introduce the Dreams v Reality panelists and will discuss the power and agency that the NDIS and its rollout for 0-17 year olds in the Nepean and Blue Mountains regions will bring.
The 2015 possABLE IDEAS Expo will be held at the Penrith Panthers Club on July 45 from 10am – 4pm and on July 25 from 10am – 3pm.
The Expo is a FREE event and ample parking is available. Registration is essential and can be completed by going to http://register.possableideasexpo.com.au/.
