Time: 4.00pm (Registration starts from 3.30pm)

During this talk Adam Oliver, who heads up disability and inclusion research within BT Innovate & Design, will discuss the opportunities for an inclusive future where no matter the disability, people can take part in an inclusive and connected society. We have come a long way from website and product design and there are so many chances to make sure that nobody feels excluded from information, services and media in the future. Adam will also share the work underway with SCOPE the charity that helps people with cerebral palsy where a number of their students have been able to not only communicate independently for the first time in their lives, but also to have fun through the use of media control. Adam also has a passion for development of the youngest people, particularly Apprentices, and we are sure you will be pleased to know that the next generation of talent is being nurtured and key to delivering an inclusive society.

This talk will be an enlightening and heart warming view of an inclusive future, one that is becoming more important as we live longer and become reliant on digital services.
