Speaker – Andrea Comastri Founding Director of Hotel Etico Australia. Andrea is focussed on establishing Hotel Etico as a leading example of innovation in the sector, providing opportunities to young people with intellectual disabilities as well as challenging the wider community to see both the human and economic value of an inclusive society that focuses on abilities rather than disabilities. Andrea is a passionate believer in the transformative power of the social enterprise sector.

Speaker – Trevor Graham is the writer/director & co-producer of Chef Antonio’s Recipes for Revolution. He’s been a filmmaker for over 35 years, producing works that inspire social inclusion and change. He fell in love with the people in this film and travelled to and from Italy over a 3 years period to direct it.

Speaker – Tracylee Arestides’ passion for coffee, inclusion and advocacy for people with disability, lead her to share a cuppa with the Italians founders of Hotel Etico (Italy) in 2015. A visit to the Hotel in Asti the following year convinced her that this model of social inclusion – working, learning, living and community – was a perfect fit for Australia. With 20 years’ experience working in the disability sector, and as the parent of a young woman with Down syndrome, Tracylee turned her energies and commitment to being part of the team that brought this game changing social enterprise to Australians with disability and their families.
