Sarah Gatford

Making your business inclusive

We are delighted to announce that Sarah Gatford will be speaking at the Burton Small Business conference on Wednesday October 11.

Sarah is a consultant, trainer and British Sign Language/English interpreter with a passion to encourage businesses to be inclusive of those with a disability: “By doing so, we all benefit,” said Sarah.

She added: “The reason I wanted to speak at the conference is to bridge the gap between deaf and hearing people.”

In 2016 and 2017, Sarah was a finalist in the East Midlands Chamber Business Awards’ Social Impact category. She supports businesses to enhance their awareness of potential opportunities they create by promoting improved accessibility to their services.
