Howdy. I’m Meryl Evans.

Aside from my family, my why is to ensure everyone has equal access and to educate companies on accessibility and disabilities.

I’m a professional speaker on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) with a focus on accessibility and people with disabilities who has a heaping helping of digital marketing background. Companies bring me in to speak, provide training, and do accessibility marketing consulting projects.

Speaking and Training Services

When you hire me to speak or train, you’ll get the 3 E’s: education, entertainment, and encouraging action. Attendees will learn something new, have a few good laughs, and take action. The talk or training can be customized for your organization. I am available to travel.

I also offer a series of training sessions. Accessibility is daunting. It’s better to break up the topics over multiple sessions. Each topic has:

  • Key takeaways: What do you want them to know?
  • At least one action to take

Spreading out the training into multiple 1-hour sessions ensures attendees learn and apply what they learn between sessions.

The two biggest goals of every presentation are to …

  • Educate
  • Entertain
  • Encourage action

Signature speaking and training topics include the following.

  • Accessibility Awareness
  • Disability Awareness
  • Accessibility for marketing and communications teams
  • PoPCom(m): Progress over perfection and communication

Example topics:

  • How to get started in accessibility
  • What is 360-degree accessibility and why do you need it?
  • Why and how to create accessible communication and content
  • Virtual reality accessibility: Creating accessible virtual experiences
