Wayne Herbert, MC

Wayne has undertaken a number of speaking opportunities throughout Australia to present issues of disability, diversity and human resources.  He is a solutions-focused thought leader.  He knows all too well that as a country, Australia cannot let the skills and talents of people with disability go to waste.

Wayne has a unique, humorous, thought-provoking, and challenging insight into the issues facing people with disability. He too has a disability, but is well-known for forgetting about it.

“Is it wrong that I forget I have a disability? I just get on with things; I’ve got shit to do.”

Wayne has experience in all aspects of client relations, human resources, and business administration. He has a keen interest in social and employment policy that ensures the talents and expertise of people with disability are recognised in the workforce and community more broadly.  His work is focused on ensuring that full participation in both work and community life is realised.
