About Graeme K Whippy MBE Graeme K Whippy MBE is a consultant who helps organisations become brilliant employers for disabled people, and consequently brilliant employers for everyone. His goal is for employers to become truly inclusive by eliminating the barriers that prevent people – regardless of their differences – enter the workplace and thrive in their jobs and careers.

His key achievements included creating an award-winning approach to making workplace adjustments for disabled employees at Lloyds Banking Group, and leading the creation of the Dementia Friendly Financial Services charter whilst representing the UK banking sector on the Prime Minister’s Dementia Challenge 2012-15. Now an independent consultant, Graeme takes a pan-business approach to helping companies embed best practice on disability and inclusion with workplace adjustments as a core focus. His clients have included Channel 4 Television (where he was their Disability Specialist and created their much lauded free guide for the media sector on employing disabled talent), Viacom International Media Networks, Ofcom, Financial Ombudsman Service, and RNIB where he is Strategic Accessibility Lead.
