About Event

Life isn’t always accessible and inclusive for a person with disability. What would your organisation achieve if it welcomed every ability?

Zack Alcott, the Principal Consultant for Get Skilled Access, will be sharing about GSA’s vision of – “inclusion, choice and control for all people with disability, achieved through living our purpose of creating a new generation of disability inclusion that is equitable for all”, through insights about Australia’s first disability inclusive music festival “Ability Fest”.

Zack has been the project director for many of GSA’s major clients and projects since starting GSA in 2016, which was founded with his brother, Wheelchair Tennis Grand Slam Champion, Paralympian and disability advocate Dylan Alcott OAM.

Since 2018, Zack has managed Australia’s first disability-inclusive music festival, Ability Fest, which aims to use music as an inclusive platform to normalise disability inclusion. It has also been internationally recognised for its access and inclusion. Zack has also managed and supervised the MCG, Tennis Australia/Australian Open, Australian F1 Grand prix, Live Nation/Ticketmaster, access and inclusion programs, allowing him great understanding and insights.
