    Our guest speaker who has dementia will be in conversation with Professor Susan Kurrle. In this impactful session, they will share reflections on the changes and stories of bravery that have touched their life and those around them since diagnosis. 

    This conversation is a personal one and we are privileged to have their honesty and trust in us. They ask this International Dementia Conference to listen, as they share what they want us to consider in building a brave new world not only for them but for their family and others with dementia in all four corners of the world.
