Our guest speakers for the September NZDEN meeting are:

  • Sharon Carroll – Disability & Inclusion Partner, Australia Post
    Shannon was a very well received presenter at our 2022 Disability Inclusive Pathways Conference. We are pleased to have her join us again for more in-depth discussions around Australia Posts’ journey to becoming one of Australia’s leading disability confident and inclusive organisations.
  • Julius Serrano – Digital Accessibility Consultant, Access Advisors
    Julius started his journey in accessible technology in 2000 when he discovered the wonder of screen reading software. Now, he is a consultant and trainer helping make the Internet a more accessible and inclusive place.
    Julius has conducted accessibility training and workshops in New Zealand and several countries in Asia and has trained hundreds of people on web accessibility and assistive technology. Attendees are treated to a combination of education, inspiration, and his unique sense of humour. 
    As an accessibility consultant, Julius has performed testing and audits for Ministry of Health, Ministry of Justice, Electoral Commission, Department of Conservation, NZ Transport Agency, Christchurch City Council and many others. He enables his clients to experience the joy and fulfilment of knowing that their content can be accessed by all regardless of ability. Julius feels blessed to help improve online accessibility – being a person who is totally blind himself.
    Julius will join us and present to us on digital accessibility – in particular, demonstrate the use of screen-reader technology.

We look forward to engaging with you all along with this great lineup of speakers.
