INSIGHT is an ambitious undertaking and the first of its kind. Never before has there been an online summit designed to reach a global audience. We are doing this to provide an inspirational and informative platform to help unite a global audience with something bigger!

We have already received a hugely positive response from speakers willing to give their time, organisations wanting to connect and people with Parkinson’s who have already registered.

Help us to create the biggest global audience of Parkinson’s ever!


Shake It Up Australia Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation established in 2011 and in partnership with The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) promotes and funds Parkinson’s disease research in Australia aimed at better treatments and ultimately a cure.

The foundation was established by Clyde Campbell, a father of three and business owner who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2009 at the age of 44.


Make sure you check out the program and speaker list – you will not be disappointed. There is something there to appeal to everyone over the eight different topic streams and additional opportunities for live Q&A discussion sessions.

Get the premium ticket option and you will be able to stream the sessions at your leisure over an additional 30 days.

INSIGHT is about providing hope and connection. Hear from the researchers, clinicians and influencers who are leading the field in Parkinson’s. We are looking outward to the future where adventure awaits…. Do not miss this opportunity.


Not only does this Summit provide you with a fantastic opportunity to hear from world leading presenters all in the one place, the Summit itself is a world first for global collaboration in Parkinson’s.

Here are five reasons you cannot afford to miss out on the 2018 INSIGHT SUMMIT

  1. One place, three days, 30 expert speakers at your finger tips
  2. No associated travel or accommodation costs. This summit is direct to your living room!
  3. Eight topics streams that we know you want answers on
  4. Insight and hope to inspire a better life.
  5. Your opportunity to be part of something bigger


Online summits are delivered like a normal conference, except that they are delivered completely online and virtually. You can view the content directly from your living room, or from your phone when you are out-and-about. Once you have registered for the Summit you will receive a unique login to access the content over each day of the Summit and up to 30 days following, depending on your registration level.

Like a normal conference, there is a daily program schedule of speaker presentations, break sessions and an opportunity to visit the exhibition hall. We have separated the content into eight separate streams with speakers presenting for between 20 and 60 minutes each within those streams. There will be live Q&A sessions leading up to the Summit (hosted on Facebook Live), in addition to the two live Q&A sessions scheduled in the program already.

We are very excited to announce that this year we have 30 exhibitors who you can engage with in the exhibition hall – connect with technology companies producing apps and tools for people with Parkinson’s, medical and pharmaceutical agencies and organisations who are all working towards a common goal and a bigger picture! Don’t miss out, get your tickets now!

Gain invaluable insight from 30 World Class speakers!


The 2018 INSIGHT SUMMIT has been brought to you by PD Warrior. PD Warrior is a small organisation that continues to punch well above it’s weight. Developed as a rehabilitation program in Australia, it has expanded rapidly and is now run Internationally in four countries and counting. Our aim is to specifically help people slow the symptom development of their Parkinson’s down.

What sets PD Warrior apart and delivers such great success as a program are the four underpinning pillars:

PD Warrior helps people to achieve a greater state of physical, mental and social wellbeing by using neuroplastic training principles in exercise, as well as easy strategies and hints to build confidence, keep motivated and make significant changes for life.

PD Warrior is proud to be bringing together such an esteemed group of speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and partners, all of whom have given their time freely to raise awareness and to help people live their best life with Parkinson’s – because of and in spite of their Parkinson’s.
