Associate (NDIS Participant)
Linda Blaik considers herself a diamond in the rough, but given her exposure on national and international disability platforms, we think her natural state is very polished indeed. Linda is an experienced and credentialed facilitator, having convened a range of Disability Awareness sessions for Deakin University, TAFEs too many to mention and a range of corporate clients such as Mercure and Quest Apartment chains. Linda has regular speaking engagements nationally and internationally including at the International Initiative for Disability Leadership (IIDL) conference in 2019 in Boston, USA. Linda was also the first person with lived experience of disability to be selected as a member of the Committee for Geelong, on the Strategy and Policy Sub-committee. She has also been engaged in a number of research projects in recent years. Linda’s resume is so extensive, we can’t fit it all here! She lives in Geelong with her husband David, and Guide Dog Daicos and we are very excited to have her on our team.
