Webinar Description

“Obstacles create Opportunities which bring out the strongest personalities and skill sets of individuals that you want and need to be a successful team. Empowering people to be able to maximise their contributions through authentic inclusion can be inspiring but not in the traditional or superficial sense. In this exciting webinar, Liz Johnson will mix a combination of her background and experience as a Paralympic athlete and her experiences now trying to normalise differences within workplaces to achieve meaningful employment. Focussing on making things “person centred” so that you can maximise both employee and organisation productivity and satisfaction.”
