KEYNOTE Presentations:

Find Your Stroke Of Genius - Peter Dempsey

Peter Dempsey is a remarkable young man who has been forced to overcome incredible adversity. He is by anyone’s definition a walking, talking miracle. Not expected to live beyond his 5th birthday by doctors, Peter has faced more physical, mental and emotional challenges than most. His remarkable story of resilience and courage has inspired audiences of all ages to adopt his never give up attitude and to face the challenges of life with a new resolve and inner belief in their own abilities. Peter’s ability to defy the impossible time and time again has been transformed into an inspiring mantra that’s being used by his clients and fans (I’m Possible of Anything). 


Recent labour market trends and what employers are looking for in job seekers - Ivan Neville

Ivan Neville, Manager of the Labour Market Research and Analysis Branch in the Australian Government Department of Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business, will present on recent trends in the Australian and South Australian labour market and how the world of work is changing. Ivan will draw on extensive analysis and research undertaken within the Department, including insights from employers on what they are looking for in job seekers, and how job seekers can better connect with employment opportunities.

Employment Options


Employment Options is a community-based charitable organisation which provides high quality services for over 28 years to people in our local communities, especially to young people, unemployed people, or those who are disadvantaged. Employment Options is a Public Benevolent Institution (PBI) and have Deductible Gift Recipient status (DGR). Employment Options helps disadvantaged people to plan and achieve employment and education goals. We believe in a community where everyone can achieve their working future. Evidence based research clearly demonstrates that access to sustainable employment is the most critical factor in people being able to achieve their life goals, and to contribute to society to their full potential. People who don't have school or post-school qualifications have disproportionately high rates of joblessness and employment which is erratic, low paid and low skilled. Consequently, they are also more likely to experience financial distress, homelessness, family disruption, and social exclusion. Employment Options addresses this through a variety of services, including alternative learning centres, support and mentoring, involvement in a range of industries including arts and cultural and career education and case management. “Together, we help people grow, feel good about themselves and hopeful for the future.” – Michelle Braham, CEO
