You can hire me to work for you! I have a range of services including writing, speaking and training. Please contact me for my rates.
Would you like me to write something for you? I can write an article for your news site, copy for your business site or a guest blog post.
Is there a topic you’d like me to write about on my blog? You can commission me to do so, just like Sue asked me to write a piece on inspiration objectification of people with disability – and I did! Click here to read that piece.
I’ve worked for almost a decade in government communications. I’ve spent almost a decade writing for the mainstream media (including the ABC, SBS, Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, Daily Life, News Corp, Kidspot, Ravishly, Frankie Magazine and more). I am currently writing my first book – a memoir – to be published by Harper Collins.
I can speak at your workplace, conference, school, community group, diversity event, hospital, university, playground…
I speak to diverse audiences – workplaces, conference attendees, media students, medical students, the disability community, academics and playing with playdough in a park with children.
My speeches have been individually and as part of panels. I’ve spoken at Melbourne University, Women of Letters, Layne Beachley’s Women in Leadership luncheon (opening for Julia Gillard), Progress 2017, University of Western England, ProBlogger, Melbourne Writers Festival, Emerging Writers Festival, Dangerous Ideas around Disability and the Royal Melbourne Hospital – to name a few.
I also speak regularly on radio and podcasts – I’ve spoken on Life Matters, Books and Arts, and ABC local radio shows, as well as podcasts including Osher Günsberg, Just a Spoonful, the Accessible Stall and Neighbuzz.
I can design and deliver disability awareness training customised for your organisation. My training is based on the social model of disability and covers respectful and inclusive language, unconscious bias and stereotypes, inspiration objectification and creating accessibility by centring people with disability. My regular client is Settlement Services International – I deliver training to staff twice a month.
I can also deliver social media and blogging training – I have done so for The Big Melbourne Blog In, MS Australia and Writers Victoria.
If my work has helped you, made you think or made you laugh, or if you’ve used it in your workplace or classroom, you can show your appreciation buy ‘buying me a drink’.
I have a working with children check, ABN and and business insurance.
What people have said about my work
“Carly has been such a pleasure to work with on the PBS Access Training Program. She’s been able to bring such great insight into our program and has been so generous with sharing her expereince. I’ve had feedback from students saying that her cultural competency class with the Atong Atem and Hannah Donnelly was a real highlight of the program.” – Bethany Atkinson-Quinton – PBS Access Training Coordinator.
“You think you’re an intersectional & inclusive feminist. Then amazing Carly Findlay speaks & you realise you need to do more” – Emeline Gaske – participant at Progress2017
“At the start of the session, I didn’t realise I was a part of the [disabling] barrier and now know that I am.” – participant of my disability awareness training at Settlement Services International.
“I used to think of disability as a deficit but you’ve changed my thinking.”- participant of my disability awareness training at Settlement Services International.
“My daughter and I watched the episode of You Can’t Ask That on facial difference. She asked if the people featured were “monsters”. While it killed me, her question prompted a great conversation and lesson for her, and she now knows that people are just different to each other in lots of ways. How the look, sound, move. You’re a force of positive change in the world, Carly Findlay Morrow. Thank you!” – Ellen, viewer of You Can’t Ask That
“What a TREAT to finish the week with your piece. As you know I’m a big fan of your writing but this is definitely one of my favourites. It’s SO interesting, heartfelt, and well researched. I really liked the way you told it — and the reflection of having “a family out there who share your experience of what it’s like to look different”. What a wonderfully powerful note to end on.” – Candice Chung, former editor of Daily Life, commenting on this piece.
