Event description

Description

Essex County Council (ECC) invites you to our Disability Confident Lunch and Networking Event.

This is a great opportunity to find out how to become a Disability Confident employer and tap into a wealth of advantages for your business, including:

  • How to ‘Unleash the Purple Pound’ – the spending power of disabled customers.
  • Gaining access to a wide pool of talent to help enhance the future growth of your business.
  • Showing your workforce and clients that you are dedicated to equality in the workplace.
  • Meeting ECC’s future requirement that its supply chain is Disability Confident.

Join us to network over lunch and hear real-life stories of employment, followed by presentations from Gavin Jones, CEO of ECC; Mike Adams OBE, Chief Executive of Purple; Brian Keating of Department for Work & Pensions; and Tom Hicks of Remploy.

There will be the chance to contribute to the discussion and have your questions answered by our panel of experts during a question and answer session.

This event is part of our annual ‘Art of the Possible’ festival, where we celebrate the good things that happen in Essex.
