The 2018 FCRC Conference

17-19 October 2018 Pullman on the Park, East Melbourne

This year FCRC celebrated a milestone, marking its 40th year in financial counselling and consumer advocacy. While reflecting on the significant changes that have taken place over the years, we looked at new strategies to take forward into the future. Our conference theme was something meaningful to all financial counsellors and industry partners alike: Empowering People. The Pullman on the Park, was our home for three days of cross-sector engagement, as we considered pathways to empower not only our clients in hardship, but also those who support them.


Our theme: Empowering People

Here's what went down:

  • Presentations to keep you inspired, challenged and engaged
  • A variety of breakout sessions for in-depth discussions
  • Networking opportunities and cross-sector collaboration
  • Our Gala Awards Dinner, reflecting on 40 years of FCRC
  • Even more Speed Dating!
  • Highlights from our host city: Melbourne
  • and much, much more...
