About Liz Forsyth
Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
Qualifications and Experience:
SROT, Post Graduate Diploma of Social Science in Rehabilitation and a Master of Business Administration (MBA).
Liz joined Brain Injury SA in October 2018, coming from a background in leadership roles within the community and disability service sectors.
Commencing her career as an Occupational Therapist, Liz brings extensive experience in both rehabilitation and management through positions held in England, New Zealand and Australia in the not for profit and commercial sectors. Always committed to supporting people achieve their aspirations through pushing boundaries, and challenging the status quo. For thirteen years she ran an innovative employment service for people living with disabilities, and subsequently held CEO roles in community and women’s service sectors, developing services and campaigning on issues that matter, both as a leader and as a volunteer.
Liz joins Brain Injury SA with appreciation of the value of developing specialist and quality services to meet the needs of people living with acquired brain injury, and commitment to strengthening the accessibility and contribution the organisation can make to the rehabilitation and support of its clients and their families. She recognises the importance of collaboration across the service sector at times of considerable change to service access and provision with the roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and values highly building new and growing older relationships the organisation has with other service providers.
Says of her role at Brain Injury SA:
“It is a great privilege to work with such a dedicated team to drive more and better services for the brain injury community. I love the variety of people I meet in my role and the challenge to see what we can achieve together.”
