Mind Your Own Business
While networking in May 2017, Esi met Amelia Bishop and they spoke about disability awareness and inclusion in the workplace and specifically, ways in which businesses can be more inclusive towards disabled people.
As a result, Amelia invited Esi onto her Swindon radio show “Mind Your Own Business” to talk about the work Celebrating Disability does and how businesses can support disabled people.
Ray Vernon, owner of MySokoni, interviewed Esi on a couple of occasions for his vimeo channel. They talked about the importance of language and etiquette, the barriers to networking as a wheelchair user and the social model of disability.
I just wanted to say thank you. You are such an engaging speaker… From our first conversation at the D&I event. I came away with admiration and thinking not only how intelligent but also how articulate you are. You are such an effortless storyteller and then to see you hold the room at the away day in a manner that you did left me (and many of my other colleagues) with an even greater feeling of awe!
