MANAGING DIRECTOR - SEEMA FLOWER
Seema Flower started this business 25 years ago. As a blind woman, she was always shocked how Disabled customers were treated. She thought 'there has to be a better way'.
Thankfully today there is. And with the introduction of the UK Equalities Act in 2010, it is now a legal requirement to consider and adapt to the needs of disabled customers for most businesses.
That's the stick but what about the carrot?
Disabled people and their family and friends have money and they actively want to spend it! Often making quite small changes, beginning with education, you can empower your disabled customers/employees and improve your bottom line
“Sometimes clients just need the reassurance that what they're doing is okay. Our exercises allow organisations to feel more comfortable recruiting visually impaired individuals. Simple reasonable adjustments is what we are aiming for.”
