The event is aimed at bringing together Assistive technology and Service suppliers to demonstrate the latest advancements in ‘Assistive Technology’ and ‘Accessibility’ best practices. There will be guest speakers including our ‘Accessibility Consultant’ Andrea Kennedy. All delegates will be treated to live demonstrations of the very latest innovative technologies in the field.
Andrea will be speaking about ‘taking a holistic approach to implementing accessibility within an IT infrastructure’.
She has been working within the field of disability for over 15 years, after having an accident which left her with a disability. Andrea discovered a passion for technology and went on to develop the Shaw Trust Web Accessibility Service. Since then Andrea has developed her own consulting business and has advised many organisations on their accessibility -related issues such as, inaccessible technologies, disability at work policies and supported employment services in the UK, Poland and the middle east.
Andrea and the ‘Destek team’ will be exhibiting at the event to offer advice and guidance on all ‘accessibility issues’, including physical and digital accessibility to all who visit our stand, so please come and say ‘Hello’.
