Pragmatic Idealist

Sue Pieters-Hawke is a recognised lay authority in dementia and ageing circles. Her years working with her mother, leading advisory bodies,  and sharing experiences with so many people across the sector have grounded her firmly in the realities and constraints of the sector as it currently operates. Yet her wide reading and discussions, especially regarding innovation and new evidence, plus her tendency ‘to think outside the box’, make her one of the most exciting yet practical thinkers in the realm of what is possible as we move forward to meet challenges in the aged care sector and in ageing generally.

Consultant to Aged Care Industry

Her expertise is regularly sought by aged care providers and professionals in the health and aged care industry. Sue has an innate ability to contribute to conversations about dementia, dementia care and positive ageing – whist always looking for practical ways to implement latest thinking that can be tailored to meet specific client needs and agendas.
