The 2019 Joint Conference Welcome Reception will be held at Brisbane City Hall which is one of Queensland's most significant heritage and cultural icons and has social and historical importance for locals, particularly those whose families helped in its design and construction. Since its opening in 1930, Brisbane City Hall has been a symbol of civic pride and over the years it has become one of Brisbane's greatest icons and community meeting places. The building has played an important role in the lives of our local community in times of war, peace, celebration and refuge and has rightly earned the title of the 'People's Place'. Brisbane City Hall is home to Brisbane's civic, community, artistic and social life and has hosted many famous guests. The BCEC is situated alongside the Brisbane River (indigenous name Maiwar) and a 20 minute walk to Brisbane City Hall. Coaches will depart BCEC at 6.15pm and 6.30pm for a 5 minute drive to Brisbane City Hall for those delegates who would prefer to ride. Finger food and drinks will be served, plus the opportunity to network informally with fellow delegates, sponsors and exhibitors. Coaches will return delegates to the BCEC at 8.15pm and 8.30pm.

In many Majority-world (developing) countries, the profession of speech therapy is in its infancy. Whilst volunteering, Australian Government placement programs and student mobility programs are on the rise, barriers and facilitators of these services especially in regards to sustainability exist. There are many considerations in the provision of services in Majority-world countries with respect to the community receiving the service (such as sustainability of the service, gain and impact on the community) and the individual participating in the activity (such as motivation to participate, cultural preparedness, and short and long term life-changing effects). The aim of this presentation is to present the experiences and models of capacity building speech therapy services implemented by Australian Speech Pathologists in some Majority world countries and highlight the ways they have ensured sustainability. The gains of volunteering and working in a global context and the barriers and facilitators to service delivery will be highlighted. Please collect your lunch prior to attending this session.

The Guild Insurance Conference Dinner will be held in the Plaza Terrace Ballroom of the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, and it will provide a superb end to the Engaging Collaborating Empowering conference. As speechies we are called to help others, and the theme for this year's conference dinner is 'Unleash your superpower'. This theme is the chance to embrace our SP/SLT superpowers and to celebrate the heroes in each of us. So why not come dressed as someone (or something) that empowers you? Or come dressed to impress as a hero that inspires you: fictional or real, past or present! You can dress as simply or elaborately as you like. Entertainment options for the night include the photobooth (sponsored by Guild Insurance) so be sure to capture your old and new collaborations here! For those trivia buffs, brush up on your general knowledge and be ready to engage with those around you for an Australia vs New Zealand quiz. Finally, get ready to be empowered with music entertainment by Chris Tamwoy. Chris is nationally and internationally recognised for his music, and after spending his childhood with his family in the Torres Strait Islands, he is now a proud ambassador for his Culture and Country. Chris will provide entertainment during dinner with his unique playing style and sound. After dinner, it will be time to put on your dancing shoes and bust some moves on the dancefloor with DJ Diggler. Be ready to unleash your inner superhero and embrace your speechie superpowers in a fun-filled night. The 2019 conference dinner is one not to be missed!
