Public Speaking

I am an experienced public speaker and my authoritative but down-to-earth style goes down well with audiences.

I have spoken on many occasions on my own behalf and that of my clients on a range of disability-related topics, including:

  • Workplace Adjustments (naturally!)
  • Disability and employment
  • Barrier-free recruitment
  • IT Accessibility strategy and implementation
  • Dementia in business
  • Changing perceptions about disability

Occasions have been both internal company events and public seminars and conferences, for example:

  • British Assistive Technology Association AGM, London, 2017
  • BASF's International Disability Day Ambassador Event, Germany, 2014
  • EPR Annual Conference, Valencia, 2015
  • Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology, London, 2012
  • Rehabilitation International World Congress, Edinburgh, 2017
  • Chair, Scottish Gov Congress on Disability and Employment, Glasgow, 2018
  • UK Government Disability Confident Launch, London 2016
  • Workability Asia annual conference, Hong Kong, 2017
  • Zero Project Conference, Vienna, 2017

I have also conducted live radio and TV interviews, most recently on BBC Breakfast in February 2017.
