"One should try to optimise for impact. There is a way to do well and do good."
- Neil Blumenthal
The primary aim of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is to provide Australians under 65 years of age, with a permanent and significant disability, the individualised support and the flexibility to manage their supports and enjoy a good quality of life.
Within the next five years, the NDIS will provide more than $22 billion a year to 500,000 Australians who are eligible for the NDIS as participants. Presently, the scheme supports 467,000 people with disabilities and a quarter of a million workers/11,600 NDIS Providers.
For organisations providing services to people with disabilities (NDIS Providers), a fine line must be walked in order to capitalise on both the economic and social impact opportunities; navigating the complexities of the scheme and acquiring the necessary business acumen needed to lead and run a quality and safe guard-compliant, participant-centred business.

I am very lucky to have found Chris. He is an NDIS industry expert with in depth knowledge and a lot of working experience in the field. It has been a pleasure interacting with him, his thoughts are helpful and I find him a great listener. Working on my strategic planning session with him was really insightful. And he helped me establish myself within one month by getting clients. What I found most helpful was that he helped me establish the foundation of my company.
