Walk the Talk is a conference that invites dialogue, debate and conversation about ending the abuse of older people wherever it occurs in aged care residential settings, at home or in the systems and processes that surround us. The issues, ideas and challenges raised during Walk the Talk will encourage all delegates to continue their work, to drive change and to be voices for action.
Driving change requires a big picture perspective that challenges the status quo, political trends and understands the social and economic impact. Do we have an economy that cares for its citizens? What is the economic value to reducing elder abuse?
Our keynote speakers will be joined over the two days by esteemed and honoured guests including:
Anna Bligh, Chief Executive Officer, Australian Banking Association
Ian Yates, Chief Executive Officer, COTA Australia
Dr John Chesterman, Public Advocate, Office of the Public Advocate (QLD) and many more.
