SPEAKER HIGHLIGHTS

Alice Vanderpol, 2018 Pharmacy Guild of Australia/Maxigesic Pharmacy Assistant of the Year

“My first experience of APP opened my eyes to how big the pharmacy world really is - so much more than my small patch of pharmacy that I work in! I would highly recommend all pharmacy assistants to go at least once. This experience will broaden your knowledge of the industry, get you thinking outside the box with community engagement strategies and open your eyes to future innovative changes that are happening right before us. Not to mention the free products to trial & bring home to your local pharmacy. You won’t regret the investment in yourself and your staff!”

Frank Uccellini, Proprietor, Uccellini Group - TerryWhite Chemmart Browns Plains, Priceline Pharmacy Browns Plains, TerryWhite Chemmart Chirnside, TerryWhite Chemmart Robina

“APP is a really important part of my professional development; getting up to date on critical industry matters and most importantly, catching up with so many people that I don’t get a chance to catch up with throughout the year.”

Gary McGraw, Pharmacy Owner, Foote's Pharmacies

'APP is the one pharmacy event each year I never miss. It’s a great place to catch up with friends and colleagues whilst also getting a feel for the key issues affecting the industry. In particular I find the Pharmacy of the Year session fills me with enthusiasm and ideas to take back to my own pharmacies.'

Marta Stybowski, General Manager | Pharmacium

“The APP conference has been a significant event on our company’s calendar for well over a decade now. Attracting a broad spectrum of key industry decision makers it provides the ideal platform to network with both existing and prospective clients, making it the premier not-to-be-missed event we are pleased to continue supporting with both of our company’s business divisions; Willach Pharmacy Solutions and Pharmacium.”

Rosie Batty knows pain no woman should have to suffer. After her son was killed by his father in a violent incident that shocked the nation and the world, Rosie became an outspoken and dynamic crusader against domestic violence. Before her recent shift to focus on less public-facing advocacy work, Rosie ran the Never Alone campaign which led the push to put domestic violence victims at the centre of all decisions. Rosie is now Chair of the Victim Survivors’ Advisory Council for the Victorian Government, which is in response to the country’s first Royal Commission into Family Violence. In 2015, Rose was named Australian of the Year. She has also been named as one of Fortune Magazine’s top 50 world’s greatest leaders and has been inducted into the Victorian Honour Roll of Women.
