What our delegates say
  • Allan Waters
    General Manager - Residential Services & Retirement Living, Baptist Care NSW/WA
    “During my first trip, I made some enduring friendships, from the second trip I formed business relationships, those friendships and business association links are critical to the success of the business I work in. The tours are really well-organized and structured and you get to meet people and visit facilities that you would never be able to do on a private trip.”
  • David Frost
    Board Director, Benevolent Living Rockhampton QLD
    “The UK Sage tour had a profound influence on our CEO Alison Moss . It was a catalyst for establishing our new arts community as part of our Rhythm of Life development.

    We now have a world class facility in a regional Queensland town - thank you Judy.”
  • Sasha Andrews
    CEO, Woolgoolga & District Retirement Village
    "I cannot recommend Judy Martin and the SAGE Study Experience highly enough. It was my first tour but won’t be my last as the learnings have impacted me deeply and will influence the operations of my organisation, now and into the future.

    In the words of Molly Meldrum “Do yourself a favour” and in the words of Sasha “Book yourself into the next Sage study tour, you won’t regret it”.
  • Elizabeth Carroll
    CEO, Barunga Village
    "I found it very worthwhile experience- we confirmed a lot of our own thinking, plus got lots of great new insights and ideas, which we are keen to share with the Board and Management. We also developed a great network with the other delegates, who we now can reach out to and share with.

    Jude was so professional and friendly, helped the delegates come together. We all had a great time whilst learning so much."
  • Andrew Larpent
    Former CEO, Southern Cross Care
    “In South Africa I saw some of the most primitive conditions of aged care that I have ever experienced, but what I also saw in those places was some of the best person centred care I have ever seen. We have so much to learn and relearn from South Africa about how they support and look after older people in their societies with few resources.”
  • Anonymous
    Aged Care Provider, Australia
    “I think it was a great trip and I can identify many benefits. My main reason for coming was to gain ideas and see in action how things could be done differently and I have come back with many ideas and as an extra bonus I have made some great professional contacts with new people which I am sure will continue. Thanks for all the work that went into the tour I would certainly recommend it to others and also consider doing it again.”
