Our latest conference; 2011 & Beyond – The Way Ahead New Challenges – New Solutions – New Opportunities, explored Deaf Oorganisational development in a changing environment. It was held on Tuesday, 13 December 2011 at BT Centre in London.
Our exhibitors were Action on Hearing Loss, Significan’t, BT, Advanced Bionics, SignHealth and STAGETEXT. We had a fantastic programme packed with speakers who provided great insight into their own organisations and their thoughts on the future for the deaf sector.
We were also delighted that Beth from Bee Communications was able to launch our new website! We really hope you like the new site, please do let us know your thoughts and follow us on Twitter and Facebook!
Here are some snapshots of the day:
