Speaking and Training
When you hire me to speak at an event or train your employees, the focus is on the 3 E’s: educate, entertain, and encourage action. Attendees will learn something new, have a few good laughs, and make progress. The talk or training can be customized for your organization.
The three goals of every presentation are to …
- Educate attendees to ensure progress happens
- Entertain attendees to help them remember the message
- Encourage attendees to take action with the new knowledge
I can also deliver a series of presentations. There’s a lot involved with accessibility and supporting people with disabilities. I create multiple presentations that are given at least one month apart. This gives attendees time to absorb and apply the learning.
- Accessibility and disability awareness
Accessible Marketing Consulting
There are two versions of this service. One that helps the marketing department create accessible communications related to their brand. The other is marketing the value of accessibility within the company.
Educating employees on accessible marketing and content
Companies bring me in as an accessibility marketing consultant to help educate their employees on the why and how of accessible marketing. It will not be a long laundry list that feels overwhelming. I work with you and your team to implement the recommendations. I use the progress over perfection approach.
Accessible content makes a difference. Not just for search engine optimization. Your message will be heard by more people and win over prospects. You’ll expand your reach with accessible marketing and connect with your target market more effectively. Accessible marketing drives revenues. This service may include speaking, training, consulting, or a mix of options.
Marketing the value of accessibility to employees
Do you have accessibility developers and professionals focused on accessibility for your customers and stakeholders? What about the rest of your organization? Are they sold on the benefits of accessibility?
Do your employees have the tools to do their best work? What about your vendors? Many companies tend to focus on accessibility for their customers. They forget about their own backyard. The workplace needs to be accessible for employees too. Accessibility is everyone’s responsibility.
Before that can happen, employees need to understand the why of accessibility. Employees are less likely to change because they’ve been told to do something. When they learn the why, then they will want to make a change. For accessibility to become a company-wide priority requires marketing its value to employees.
Success also hinges on one more thing: executive buy-in, support, and action. Without this, educating employees on the benefits of accessibility won’t work. It won’t get off the ground.
