Plan Management explained: Disability Loop NDIS workshop 5 of 6 (Bendigo)
Event on 2017-02-22 09:30:00
The Australian Federation of Disability Organisations (AFDO) Disability Loop project is very fortunate to have received support through the Victorian Government's NDIS Transition Support Package to run the six NDIS Understanding workshops directly for people with disability and families across key regional areas in Victoria, now in Bendigo. NDIS Understanding Workshops Over three days from 20 February 2017, people with disability and their families in the Bendigo area will be able to get detailed information on the NDIS in a series of free half day workshops. These workshops will also be available early 2017 in Horsham and Wodonga. Make sure you are subscribed to the Disability Loop eNews so you find out where they are coming to next. The NDIS Understanding series are workshops that provide the information and resources people with disability and their families need about the NDIS. These are particularly important now that the NDIS is beginning to fully roll out across Australia. If you want more information about the NDIS, this series of workshops is a must. Do I need to pay to attend the workshops? These workshops are free for people with disability and their families. If your organisation would like to assist multiple people with disability and/or families to register, please contact AFDO Disability Loop on (03) 9662 3324, or email before registering.
 Workshop 5 of 6: Plan Management explained All Participants need to manage the money part of their NDIS Plan. This session discusses the pros and cons of the options available. Be better prepared to choose the best option for you, and maybe think about a transition to self-management. There are six (6) half day NDIS Understanding workshops: How does the NDIS work? Improve your understanding about how the NDIS works. This session provides an overview of the NDIS with a focus on access and planning. [flyer] Reasonable and necessary It can be hard to understand what ‘reasonable and necessary’ supports means in the NDIS. This session helps explain it clearly with examples and activities. [flyer] Planning and standing strong The NDIS Planning process is important but can be complicated. This session breaks down the steps so you can get ready for your NDIS First Plan. [flyer] I have my Plan, what now? People with disability have choice and control over how they use their supports in the NDIS. This session talks about making all the decisions needed to put a Plan into action. [flyer] Plan Management explained All Participants need to manage the money part of their NDIS Plan. This session discusses the differences, as well as the pros and cons of the options available. [flyer] Is self-management for me? Self-management of an NDIS Plan is not as hard as many people think. It could be a good choice, and this session helps you come to a decision. [flyer] The Bendigo workshops will be held over three days 20, 21, 22 February 2017 at Quest Bendigo Central as follows: 20 February 9:30am – 12:30pm Workshop 1 How does the NDIS work?

Dawn Chasers – 12 Hour Night Trail Run, Wimbleball Lake

Dawn Chasers – 12 Hour Night Trail Run, Wimbleball Lake
Event on 2017-04-22 18:01:00
The stunning Wimbleball Lake on the edge of Exmoor is home to our very first Dawn Chasers 12 Hour Night Trail Run on the night of Saturday 22nd through to Sunday 23rd April 2017. This 12 hour endurance race is open to Soloists as well as Teams of 2, 3-4 and 5-6 people running in relay; making it an accessible yet challenging event for people with wide ranging levels of fitness. We start at 6.01pm, running in the light to familiarise yourself with the routes before night falls when your head torches will lead the way through to Dawn. Official sunrise at 6.01am marks the end of the race and then we come together for a well-deserved breakfast and prize giving. The aim is to complete as many laps of the course as possible within the twelve hour timeframe. Soloists can run continuously for the 12 hours or take breaks. Teams run the race in relay with one runner out on the route at any one time. There are two routes to choose from to keep things interesting and varied – one 8km and the other 16km (which will count as two laps). We welcome hardcore competitors as well as those who are just with us for the great atmosphere or to support a charity close to their heart – so long as everyone in the team has completed at least one lap, walking or running, that’s good enough for us! Places in this inaugural event are limited to 400 runners. The Event Village overlooks the lake and will be a place to come together and socialise overnight if you’re not getting some sleep between your stints on the course. The hub of the Event Village is our main marquee where we want to create a place where competitors can chill out, warm up, re-fuel, stretch and generally hang out. Inside, you can access live updates from the event – so you can keep up to speed with how many laps you have completed and how the other competitors are faring. Just to keep things spicy! Also inside is our all night cafe will keep you supplied with unlimited hot drinks in your Dawn Chasers mug as well as selling soup and snacks. Download the Participant Information Pack here. Race entry For an entry fee of just £70 per person, you'll receive an incredible package: – Dawn Chasers neck tube/buff – Finishers medal – Breakfast (choose three items from a selection of MOMA porridges, fruit salad, Stapleton Yoghurts as well as awesome croissants and pain au chocolate from the local Bawdens the Bakers!) – Dawn Chasers mug and unlimited hot drinks throughout the event (we'll be serving quality ground coffee and teas all night long) – Toilets and hot showers – Camping in one of the South West's most stunning locations which is a Dark Sky Reserve (and in an exclusive area overlooking the lake) – Parking for two days – Water/feed station and toilets on the route – Chip timing and live updates on lap progress IMPORTANT  REGISTRATION INFORMATION:  Soloists should select the "Individual" registration option. Teams of 2, 3-4 and 5-6 should select the "Team" registration option. The first person to register from your team will be the Team Captain and they will need to set up a Team Name and password. That person should then complete their own information and pay for their own place before inviting fellow team mates to join their Team. You can send invitations by viewing your tickets in Eventbrite and clicking on "invite team members". The remaining team members can then follow the link in the email received, enter the password and complete their personal information/pay for their own place online.  Only one team member can register/pay at a time – due to the legal implications of filling out the personal information and medical/risk declarations, it must be read and completed by each individual.  The venue The breathtaking Wimbleball Lake is one of the South West’s most stunning locations and has been nominated to be the first Dark Skies Discovery Site on Exmoor. Exmoor National Park has been designated an International Dark Sky Reserve, the first place in Europe to achieve this prestigious award and only the second in the world. Telescope hire is available from the Outdoor & Active Centre so you can enjoy superb stargazing opportunities. It’s the perfect venue for a night running event! If we are lucky enough to get a clear night then we will enjoy unrivalled views of the stars above, maybe even the Milky Way, and hopefully a stunning sunrise over the lake. Charity fundraising By pushing through the night, we are showing solidarity with those facing their darkest hour or their own struggles; whether it is the long road to recovery, coping with the loss of a loved one or fighting illness. We hope our runners may take the opportunity to raise money for charity. We would love runners to get behind our Charity of the Year, North Devon Hospice, and you can choose to raise sponsorship for this fantastic charity during online registration. We are also delighted that there will be many other charities represented on the night by runners supporting causes close to their own heart. Spectators Friends and family can come along on the Saturday or Sunday (daytime only) and simply pay for parking at the meter. Alternatively,  they can purchase our Spectators Package for £20 per person which includes parking for two days, camping, a Dawn Chasers mug with unlimited hot drinks and a choice of three items at breakfast. Children aged 2-12 years are £10 which includes camping, unlimited hot/cold squash, a choice of two items for breakfast with a carton of juice or bottle of water. Under 2’s are free and they can have a choice of one item for breakfast, if required. Breakfast is by pre-order only with this Spectators Package – there will not be an opportunity to purchase breakfast on the day, but the fantastic Duck Cafe will be open from 10am and serve a wonderful range of food, drinks and snacks. Click here to find out more. Volunteers needed The Dawn Chasers 12 Hour Night Trail Run can not run without a team of fantastic volunteers. If you are taking part and your friends and family are coming along, could they volunteer? It's a great way to get involved and save the cost of the spectators package too! We are looking for people to help across the whole event – during the day on Saturday, through the night and on the Sunday morning. Roles will be either Event Village based or out marshalling on the course and shifts will be approximately four hours long depending on the role. In return, you’ll get a Dawn Chasers mug, unlimited hot drinks, camping, parking, soup/bread and/or breakfast depending on when you are volunteering with us. Please visit our website for more information and to register as a volunteer or get in touch if you have any questions. Click here to find out more.

The format of each event is very different – whether in terms of budget, fitness, training commitment required or the level of challenge.

Inside the Mind of a Venture Capitalist

Inside the Mind of a Venture Capitalist
Event on 2017-02-18 09:30:00
This intensive venture capital course, taught by leading venture capitalist J. Skyler Fernandes, covers everything from the basics to the more advanced details of venture capital. Venture capital is like the Wild West of finance, where investors look to identify the “next big thing” when companies are at a very early stage in their existence. The return potential is huge, but the risk is also great (with a possible loss of 100 percent of invested capital in 50–75 percent of portfolio companies). This course, designed for both entrepreneurs and investors, introduces the process of investment evaluation, develops the theory of due diligence, and explores various issues related to valuation and investment structures. Learn how to source deal flow, to review investment opportunities and conduct due diligence, and to calculate the valuation of a company and internal rate of return using a waterfall analysis. Other course topics include the differences between angel capital, venture capital, corporate venture capital, and private equity; venture capital fund structures; case studies of real start-ups and early-stage growth companies; cap table analysis; exit analysis; VC portfolio theory; and more. YOU'LL WALK AWAY WITH The ability to source deal flow The ability to calculate the valuation of a company IDEAL FOR Entrepreneurs Corporate officers, sole proprietors, firm partners, and investors who seek to develop familiarity with the sources and techniques of venture capital INSTRUCTOR J.
