London Southside Chamber of Commerce Event ON 19TH SEPTEMBER 2012

This evening event was held at The Co-Op Centre in Kennington. Its theme was  "Disability Awareness". Within the United Kingdom, people with disabilities comprise a market well in excess of £11 million. Many businesses might well be providing or able to provide goods and services to this market. However, there exists a fear factor and there are many pre-conceptions associated with disability which act as a barrier.This seminar was designed to help break down and remove the fear factor and the pre-conceptions.  It was led by Jennie Williams, who guided the business people attending through an informal two hours where dynamic disabled speakers invited them to discuss differences in a frank way and they explained some simple techniques to help remove unnecessary obstacles in communication. There could be no better way to help people become more comfortable around disability than through meeting a range of people with different impairments, all of whom were happy to answer the wide range of questions put to them. Following the seminar, a free networking buffet with wine and soft drinks was served. Everyone found the evening extremely interesting, useful and enjoyable. For Further information contact Gerry MacDonagh. Email: gerry@londonscc.co.uk. Phone: 020 3174 0989 or 07958 584479
