The HeX Productions team are innovators in the field of digital accessibility, providing an end-to-end solution to deliver accessible digital products, designed, built and then tested by disabled users.

We have delivered keynote talks all over the world and host a monthly meet-up called Accessibility Nottingham. Whether you want to introduce attendees to accessibility or give teams with pre-existing knowledge an in-depth look at accessibility – we have a talk for you.

Whether you’re a not-for-profit or an industry conference, HeX delivers talks to large and small audiences, at all levels of expertise.

Get in touch with us to book us for your next conference, event or webinar. 

Why choose us as event speakers? 

The team at HeX are able to offer a unique perspective, the view of an agency who designs and builds accessible websites, and as advocates of digital accessibility, helping you understand why it’s important.

We’re able to drill down into what teams and individuals need to know in order to effectively implement accessibility. 

Thanks to our partnership with Shaw Trust Accessibility Services, we’re able to offer a first-hand perspective into disabled user needs. We provide insight to people working in design, development, content and management, enabling them to adopt inclusive working patterns and processes.
