My company is called Futurista. I work as a consultant and speaker in the areas of diversity and accessibility. I’ve previously worked as a business economist, that’s where I saw the real benefits with accessible workplaces: less stress, more innovation and improved internal communication.
I will be talking about the universal workplace. Each of us thinks and solves problems in different ways. How can we ensure that each person reaches their full potential regardless functional variation? Why is that important? I will also share some of my methods for an inclusive workplace – What’s necessary for some is good for all.
I’m a football coach and crazy cat guy on my free time. Professionally, my background is as a UXer, but the past 5 years I have specialized in accessibility. I build inclusive interfaces at Axess Lab, a company which I also co-founded.
My talk will be very concrete. I’ll give examples of digital accessibility done right, and some fails as well. I’ll make sure to share some of my best pointers to help you succeed!
