About CALDWays 2017:
When: 28-29 June 2017
Where: Rydges Parramatta, Sydney
CALDWays 2017 has been designed to help aged care and disability service providers market their services to an increasingly culturally diverse audience (especially within the new competitive consumer-directed marketing environment).

It is a hands-on workshop that will be led by seasoned marketing and research experts, such as Eliane Miles from McCrindle Research and Thang Ngo from Identity Communications. Our speakers will explore Australia’s changing demographics and give delegates tips for marketing their aged care and disability services to a culturally diverse audience.
• Discover what is on the horizon, from top global futurist Dr Keith Suter.
• Hear from social researcher Eliane Miles from McCrindle about the latest cultural trends likely to impact aged and disability care services and marketing tactics.
• Learn how to attract more culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) consumers using strategic communications.
• Participate in a Facebook workshop with social media guru Samantha Jansen. This hands-on workshop will provide delegates with great advice on how to influence, dominate, and monetise Facebook.
The cost for attending the workshop is $590 per registration. If delegates register two or more people, they receive a $95 discount per registration – bringing the cost down to $495 per person.
