Able Magazine is proud to support the Business Disability Forum Annual Conference for 2019!

Generously sponsored by HSBC UK.

Within business, who is leading the way regarding disability? What does this look like? How is it being done?

In a world where Brexit is looming, now more than ever before, we need to hear from business leaders who continue to lead the way within their organisations and have made a real impact in the lives of disabled people. Our conference Disability leading the way, hosted by the British Library in their Knowledge Centre, will be an opportunity for you to learn from key individuals who have shown true leadership in effecting change within their organisations.

Our conference will feature discussions on the following:

‘Tearing down taboos’- We all know that there are taboos around certain conditions, but why is that? Why are we hesitant to talk about these conditions that affect such a large proportion of the population?

‘The next generation, changemakers & innovators’ – In this discussion hear how the next generation are leading the way creating change through their millennial or centennial view of diversity; or via new technologies and social media platforms for engagement.

‘Leading the way, our Disability-Smart winners’- This panel will share the latest best practice initiatives taking place amongst their peer organisations. Our Disability Smart Award winners will be sharing nuggets of wisdom about how to lead the way and get it right on disability within your organisation.

‘A change in our time, leaders of today’ – This panel will feature senior leaders from across industry sectors giving advice on how they have influenced huge change in their organisations. We will also be hearing from Dr Caroline Casey who heads up the influential #Valuable campaign and the Valuable 500 which was launched earlier this year at the World Economic Forum annual summit in Davos.

We will also welcome a number of organisations to showcase new and innovative technology which will help make your business disability-smart! Whether it is day to day, events or in your personal life, these companies will have something for you.

We are delighted to announce our first exhibitor will be:

Microlink – leaders in the field of assistive technology.

and many more to be announced!
