12:45 - TECH OPENS UP MORE OPPORTUNITIES FOR PEOPLE WITH LEARNING DIFFICULTIES

It’s estimated that up to 1 in every 10 to 20 people in the UK has some degree of dyslexia (Source: NHS). Dyslexia is not an obvious difficulty; it is hidden and as a result, dyslexic people have to overcome numerous barriers to make a full contribution to society. Join us to hear Steven Woodgate’s - Surface Marketing lead at Microsoft – story, career journey and how as tech continues to evolve it opens up more doors for young people, especially in the communications industry. Steven has both dyslexia and dyspraxia and has found ways to navigate through a successful career despite these challenges that could have held him back. ‘Technology isn’t just about cool gadgets, it’s as much about sociology and psychology and how people use it’.
