FACILITATORS

Sally Coddington

Sally is our resident NDIS wonderwoman (also fondly known as our ‘pocket rocket’). Don't be disarmed by her humour, she packs a punch with her huge NDIS knowledge, intellect and energy.

Sally is especially passionate marketing products, services, spaces and experiences for people with a disability.

Sally is a dynamic trainer and presenter, a Certified Practicing Marketer and lecturer in Marketing at the University of Newcastle. She is a Director of the Centre for Universal Design and a past member of the NSW Disability Council. Sally was also the CEO of a disability service provider during the Hunter NDIS trial. And, she finished her Masters at Harvard (did we mention she’s dynamic?). One of Sally's three daughters, Nicky, who passed away in 2018, was an NDIS participant for four years. Sally translates her personal and professional experience into a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities for business.

Caroline Daley

Caroline is one of the biggest NDIS nerds we’ve ever met (and we mean that as a compliment). The NDIA themselves have described her as a pioneer and we see why - her daughter, Siobhan was one of the first Australians to receive an NDIS Plan at the age of 13 and they went on to become the first family to self manage an NDIS Plan. Since then, Caroline has taken on a number of roles implementing the NDIS, including writing the original NDIS documentation and fact sheets on self-management, becoming a qualified NDIS Assistive Technology Mentor and founding planHELP, an organisation that supports families to get great outcomes from the NDIS through pre-planning support and support coordination.

She is passionate, creative and in possession of an incredible amount of NDIS experience and expertise – in short, all the qualities that make an outstanding Support Coordinator (and human).
