Turn your flaw into a ‘SUPERPOWER’

Conference this year will include a keynote presentation by Seamus Evans, an Ambassador of the Tourette Syndrome Association of Australia Inc (TSAA).  In this role Seamus raises awareness and understanding of Tourette Syndrome within schools and among the general public.  

Overcoming adversity is something our rural and remote families do everyday, and Seamus will share his journey of acceptance, passion, determination and overcoming his own hurdles.  

Your adversity can either be a setback or a gateway… so turn your ‘flaw’ into a ‘SUPERPOWER’
