"Stephen, thank you so much for providing Remote Disability Awareness Training to our colleagues at Bank of Ireland. Your natural approach, extensive subject knowledge and passion was abundantly evident throughout each and every session which made the training enjoyable and engaging.
The knowledge gained by us around the core aspects of disability, especially on the topic of Legislation & Reasonable Accommodations, gave us greater confidence when engaging with colleagues and to create an inclusive and diverse place to work where our colleagues can be themselves and perform to their full potential "

"Ability Focus provided Disability Awareness Training to our staff in the Legal Aid Board earlier in this year. As a manager in the Research, Learning and Development Unit, I am always seeking staff feedback. All of our staff who attended this course found it very engaging and thought provoking. So much so, that we arranged more sessions. We are very thankful that Ability Focus have been able to play a very important role in raising awareness in the area of Disability."
