  • (1888PressRelease) June 27, 2018 - As an addition to the previously published list of high-calibre First Nations keynote speakers, ICS invited Jessica Dean, Principal Lawyer of Legal Aid Queensland's Children and Young People Team whom will be speaking about responsive, targeted and child-focused legal information, advice and representation. Legal Aid Queensland is an independent statutory authority that provides legal assistance to financially disadvantaged people throughout Queensland with services provided across a range of areas of law including crime, family, child protection, child support, domestic and family violence, consumer protection, employment and anti-discrimination.

    Similarly, international keynote speaker, Dominique Waltower, an investigative children's social worker, high school dropout prevention mentor, job coach, violence prevention advocate and dynamic motivational speaker from San Diego, California USA will share his personal journey through domestic violence from being a victim as a child, becoming abusive as an adult to what was necessary for him to not only change his behaviour but to change his thinking about abuse. He will speak about a difficult topic with a candidness and sensitivity that promotes thought, understanding and introspection from the audience. Dominique provides listeners with a rare first-person view into the mentality of a former abuser. His authenticity about his experience is very powerful and thought provoking.

    Furthermore, the post-conference masterclass for these conferences will be facilitated by Margaret Saunders, Deadly Thinking Program Facilitator whom will be conducting a half-day workshop on Deadly Thinking which is a social and emotional well-being and suicide prevention workshop designed by Indigenous people for Indigenous people which will teach workers how core social and mental well-being issues are addressed in an open, respectful and comfortable forum.

    With great line up of resource speakers and delegations coming from all states and territories of Australia and internationally, the conference will indeed present a unique networking experience for workers to form new alliances at the same time gain an intricate working knowledge of presented successful community programs and efficient strategy implementations.

    We’ve also negotiated a special conference rate that can only be availed by registered delegates booking their hotel rooms directly at the Brisbane Marriott Hotel by quoting E3I group code. Furthermore, it has been proven time and time again that events such as this empowers and reinvigorates workers with new ideas and with enthusiasm, with a greater feeling of support and contacts that may be utilised for the betterment of their own or local community. With all this in mind, we invite you to actively participate in these conferences. REGISTER NOW!
