“Promoting confident leadership on Diversity and Disability in the workplace”
Wednesday 25th October 2017

The benefits of a diverse workforce are well documented, but there are some particular challenges that come with employing people with disabilities.
As CEO of Purple, Mike Adams will talk about his work to promote disability confidence in the retail industry which has received support from Intu and M&S.
Mike advises organisations on how they can take a leadership role in becoming disability confident employers and give their colleagues the skills and confidence to ensure that it can work out well for everyone involved. Mike will share his experiences and examples of best practice, including how to address common issues such as dealing with challenges and objections.
