Celebrating 10 Years
It is with somewhat amazement that this “good idea” for running a workshop and inviting other OTs to come along, has morphed into a business (and continues to run 10 years on). It has been such a wonderful journey, having made some amazing friendships with presenters and therapists/ workshop participants, as well as a whole host of people behind the scenes that have assisted me with providing high quality workshops that run smoothly … printers, couriers, caters, venue staff etc. I am very thankful for the positive feedback and support I have gained over the years, and for the ongoing relationships with the therapists that have returned to participate in various workshops.
I have been reflecting on some of the amazing statistics that have been achieved over the years (apologies if I have forgotten anything, as these are just off the top of my head):
- 3 cities – from local workshops in Brisbane, we have expanded to Sydney and Melbourne (with the ultimate goal being to facilitate that workshop at the Eiffel Tower)
- 8 venues – learning quickly which venues have the best catering and support
- 17 presenters – all of them amazing, as clinicians, teachers and sharers of their knowledge and skills
- 25 workshop topics – from handwriting, anxiety, toileting, coaching to speech sounds, Autism and anxiety
- 48+ workshops and more than 3000 workshop participants.
There are still a few places available at our upcoming Brisbane DCD/Dyspraxia – What is the Occupational Therapy Role workshop. I am also pleased to announce that the registrations are open for two of our upcoming workshops – Executive Function in School-aged Children with Learning Difficulties (Sydney – July) and Addressing rest and sleep in Children from an Occupational Perspective (Brisbane – September).
We have also received sufficient expressions of interest to proceed with further planning for the following workshops, hopefully we will have some further information soon:
- Leadership in Occupational Therapy (Brisbane – October 2018)
- Using Sensory Approaches for Adults and Young People in Mental Health Settings (Brisbane – February 2019)
