2016 More than a Sign Annual Conference


The 2016 More Than a Sign Annual Conference and EDT (Employment Disability Toolkit) is here to assist employers in understanding and meeting legislative imperatives as well as increasing employment opportunities for people with disabilities.

It is hoped that through the understanding of what “disability” refers to within the work environment and what is expected from legislation, that the employer and employee can work on creating a better and sustainable working environment.

Each delegate will walk away with a 73-page EDT which has been designed to support and encourage employers to apply best practice when recruiting, retaining and upskilling people with disabilities.

Each speaker is a professional in their field and bring to us a wealth of knowledge and understanding.
