Margie McIntyre s quest for adventure has taken her to Antarctica no less than 20 times, and seen her compete at an elite level in Tarmac Rallying, as well as participating in flying, scuba diving, sailing, bike riding and trekking expeditions around the world. A registered nurse who originally ran the family marine importing business, Margie took up full-time adventuring in 1994 when she and her husband, Don McIntyre began planning a year-long expedition to winter-over in Antarctica. Soon they became known as Australia s Antarctic Couple. In 1995 Margie and Don McIntyre spent a year living together, alone in a 2.4 x 3.6 metre box chained to rocks at Cape Denison Commonwealth Bay, the windiest spot on the face of the earth. Only 400 metres from the historic huts of Sir Douglas Mawson, they struggled to survive a frontier experience battling blizzards which at times kept them trapped in their box for up to 20 days. The effects of this self-imposed isolation are the subject of an award-winning documentary and best-selling book 'Two Below Zero'. Hailing originally from Brisbane, before Margie journeyed to Antarctica aged 35, she had only seen snow twice. Her tenacity and determination to complete the 12 month extreme odyssey have provided inspiration for a generation of young adventurers. As a couple, Don and Margie have received many awards and accolades for their endeavours and support of various causes. In 1996 Margie was included on a list as one of Australia's 12 most outstanding women and together they were presented with the Australian Geographical Society s highest honour - a gold medal as Adventurers of the Year, the youngest adventurers at the time to receive the honour. In 2000, the couple ran with the Olympic torch on the day of the Opening Ceremony of the Sydney Olympic Games and have been committed Australia Day Ambassadors since Along with the late Sir Edmund Hillary, Tim Bowden and Sir Peter Durham, they are also Mawson Huts Foundation Ambassadors. From 1993 to 2000, the McIntyre's continued their adventure program, undertaking nine sailing expeditions aboard their own expedition yachts and working on Russian Antarctic tourist ships as lecturers, field guides, boat drivers and as joint Expedition Leaders. In 2000 they purchased a 36 metre, 500 tonne, helicopter-equipped ice ship 'Sir Hubert Wilkins' in Finland. During the next three years they sailed half way around the world and then set out on four Antarctic Expeditions in support of education, research and adventure. To thaw out in 2004, the McIntyre's headed north to the Philippines on a six month treasure hunting expedition looking for gold aboard a Spanish Galleon. They were unsuccessful. 11

12 Speaker Abstracts & Bios (listed in the order the sessions appear on the program) To keep their land legs active and for something different Margie and Don McIntyre took on another challenge - racing Tarmac Rally cars with some success in the Targa Tasmania Rally. Throughout 2003 Margie navigated for Don in various rallies around Tasmania while in 2004, Margie teamed up with a girlfriend entering Targa Tasmania as the only all girl crew in a field of 284 drivers placing second in their division. The successful partnership, with the support of Blackmores, helped raise widespread public awareness of the plight of the endangered Tasmanian Devil. In 2005, Margie s focus returned to her great love, the Antarctic, and for the past six summers she has been the joint Expedition Leader on board the MV Orion, a five star cruise ship. During that time she has helped guide over 1800 visitors to Antarctica and shared her rich experiences and southern ocean tales with them. Back on land in Tasmania during the winter season, Margie has been responsible for logistics planning, Government liaison and Expedition Team sourcing and briefing in preparation for Orion s next Antarctic season. An accomplished inspirational public speaker, Margie has adapted her skills in the field providing the medical back-up in remote areas for her expeditions. During the past 27 years, Margie has also provided the necessary shore-side logistics support and crisis management planning for Don McIntyre as he undertook his life of adventure - from the single handed race around the world in a 50 ft yacht, Buttercup in The BOC Challenge, to the 200 Teddy Bears to Antarctica Expedition, a solo flight in a gyrocopter around Australia or his most recent epic, sailing a 7.5 metre open boat, 4000 miles across the pacific from Tonga to Timor, retracing the legendary voyage of William Bligh. Margie McIntyre, now 52, continues to face challenges - her most recent being the two year rehabilitation from a spinal fusion, the result of her extreme expeditionary lifestyle. Described by her peers as determined, passionate, caring, reliable and highly organised a true team player - Margie has evolved from this life-time of adventure with diverse skills. She has demonstrated the ability to conquer her fears and accomplish the task before her, no matter how daunting. While Don and Margie mutually agreed to go their separate ways in 2010, they remain firm friends having shared a life of adventure and supported each other through some of the toughest situations imaginable. A classically trained singer who practices only occasionally mostly to entertain the wildlife, Margie resides in Battery Point in Hobart and is currently planning her next adventure.

15 Speaker Abstracts & Bios (listed in the order the sessions appear on the program) Monday, 1.30pm 2.30pm National Funding Reform: Achieving success with Activity Based Funding Activity based funding is a funding method in which hospitals are funded on outputs which are categorised, weighted, costed and priced by purchasing organisations. There are a range of categorisation systems available for use by purchasers. Australia uses Australian Revised Diagnosis Related Groups for inpatient service classification and is developing improved systems for categorisation of emergency department services, subacute services, and outpatient services. In December 2011, Australia established an independent agency to price each service provided by state government hospitals. This, in turn, determines the amount of federal government funding provided to each state government run local hospital network. Hospitals can gain a greater understanding of their cost base with activity based funding and can plan their investment in services to fund their services based on the expected price and funding received for those services. Speaker Profile: Dr Tony Sherbon, CEO, Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA). Before taking up the position of Chief Executive Officer in the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority recently, Dr Tony Sherbon had 22 years experience in clinical and administrative management within the NSW, ACT and South Australian health systems.
