Event description

Description

Sponsored by Lloyds Banking Group, Omnicom Group, Interbrand & The Office for Disability Issues.

WHAT'S THE DEAL?

Gone are the days when disability was a conversation reserved for charities and hospitals. As a society, we are starting to recognise that brands and their agencies are accountable for representing all of us. With the likes of Microsoft, Tommy Hilfiger, Mars and Kellogg's leading the charge, more and more organisations are seeing the incentives and benefits of understanding disabled people.

But what is the wider consumer impact? And what is the secret to creating a brand experience which promotes empathy, harnesses diversity and drives innovation?

Our half day event will tackle these questions and then some.


WHO'S TALKING?

We’re giving the stage to some of the world’s experts in inclusivity, to give you a fresh perspective on disability and highlight the opportunities where businesses and brands can truly make a difference:

Dr. Caroline Casey – Award-winning social entrepreneur, TED Speaker and Founder of #Valuable
