Accessibility Director, Zara Gemmell, explains as briefly as possible, the process of carrying out an accessibility audit for our public sector clients.
Thank you all for coming to our event.
It’s great to see you all getting involved in a meet-up that’s for everyone. If I start sounding like a preacher please tell me, I don’t want to put anyone off coming. But I will say, that we all gather together because we want to make a difference to the world and I truly believe that together we can.
Here at HeX, we are huge advocates of accessibility and pledge to make sure every website that we build is accessible for people with disabilities. This includes those with visual, hearing and mobility impairments as well as those with learning difficulties.
As an organiser of any event there will always be apprehension and nerves. Thankfully we were surrounded by an amazing bunch of people who were around to calm the nerves, share their knowledge and support HeX in their very first Global GovJam in Nottingham.
I believe that stress is a self-fulfilling prophecy. In today’s society it is almost unacceptable to not be stressed. If you’re not stressed you’re clearly not doing enough, if you’re not doing enough, you’re lazy and if you’re lazy you don’t care. Wow – that is a lot of pressure to have on your head!
As a business supplying services to a client it’s incredibly important to maintain a healthy relationship, making sure that everything is communicated effectively and you are on the same page as each other.
