Founded over 10 years ago by Sarah Pickthall and Jo Verrent, two disabled leaders in the UK, the Sync Australia program is a new online leadership and coaching program exploring Deaf and disabled leadership in arts, culture, heritage and media.


The disability-led program combines leadership theory with one-on-one coaching and support for participants to reflect and progress their leadership potential.

“Never has there been a more important time to capitalise and invest in the natural skills and ingenuity of Deaf and disabled leadership than now. Working with this fantastic new cohort of ambitious empathic leaders in Australia, we aim to do just that”.
