Gavin will be sharing his experience as co-founder and Director of the Digital Accessibility Centre (DAC), helping MEX participants to understand the challenges faced by individuals with disabilities when using digital devices. This insight will provide valuable grounding for all of the Pathway areas, informing the working sessions and overall debate at MEX. Gavin’s work spans public sector and private sector organisations. This includes working with media organisations such as Sky, BBC and currently consulting on all accessibility issues for online products at Channel 4. The Digital Accessibility Centre as a whole works with some of the UK’s leading banks such as Lloyds TSB and Nationwide, auditing and consulting on the disabled user experience to ensure that the products are fully inclusive. The DAC is a not-for-profit social enterprise ensuring that all web and mobile products can be used by disabled people and in doing so provides employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
Gavin Evans speaks at MEX on 30th November – 1st December 2011 in London.
