Disability Matters 2011 – Testimonials

“I went into the conference thinking that this would raise my general awareness but I was in for a BIG surprise.  Not only was my awareness raised, I was emotionally connected, but I am now challenged to want to do more.  I also understand tools and ways to provide accommodations for people with disability.”

Jo Rando
Cisco

****************************

“Having attended the Springboard Consulting LLC., Disability Matters Conferences for the past three years I am wowed by the caliber of attendees I’ve met through networking opportunities at-this-event!

Likewise, the wealth of disability information shared amongst all the attendees as well as the overall unique experiences this event delivers year-in and year-out providing a wealth of disability information is like no other conferences I’ve attend to-date!

EMC Disability Employee Awareness Group was honored in the “Workplace Category” at this year’s Disability Matters Awards Banquet & Conference held at Cisco Systems’ headquarters in San Jose, California in April, 2011.

We we’re extremely pleased and excited to have been selected and wholeheartedly recommend for organizations seeking innovative cutting edge knowledge in the area of disabilities issues weather a large corporation and/or small to medium sized business do plan to attend next year’s conference in Newark, New Jersey!

We’re confident you will not be disappointed!”

David Ford, Senior Education Solutions Specialist

“The keynote speaker was a inspiration to me under his circumstances he has not let his situation stop him from fulfilling his dreams.”

I look forward to next year event

Bill Stout, Inside Sales Senior Education Specialist

****************************

“As a first time conference attendee, I was genuinely surprised and overwhelmed to be among so many organizations that take seriously the need to have diverse and inclusive work environments.  The employee development and education efforts exchanged were a real opportunity to share best practices, challenges, and ideas among colleagues.  Thank you for providing this forum for corporate entities, nonprofits, and universities to share information in a non-competitive way.”

Michele Bart, Executive Director
HeadNorth

 ****************************

“Springboard Consulting is changing the way businesses and individuals think about diversity. One of my goals is to be a mentor for deaf/hard of hearing employees in my firm. The keywords I learned from the conference are education, sensitivity, technologies, overcoming challenges, and attitudes.”

Thank you,

Patti Totten, Senior Desktop Publisher
