Hilton Hotel, Sydney, Australia
Below, you will find archived presentation materials from the 19th Annual Alliance Meeting, the 2011 Ask The Experts event and the 9th Annual Allied Professionals Forum.
We have shared materials from all presenters who gave us their permission, and the information is organised by event.
For the Alliance Meeting, most links will prompt you to download the PowerPoint file used during the presentation; there are also video and media clips where possible. We were fortunate to have video on-site for the Allied Professionals Forum, so we have provided links to YouTube videos of each presentation.
Feel free to browse, and if you have questions, send an email to the Catherine Cummings, Executive Director, for more information.
