We had a great time at the conference yesterday. It was a lovely day.
There were a lot of talks from disabled people who are in employment. There was a talk from a visually impaired girl who used to be a teacher, she actually taught me a few years ago. It was so nice to catch up with her.
There was a talk from a blind accountant. And a guy who worked in the civil service.
And there was a talk from a blind psychotherapist. She gave a great talk on mental health and wellbeing.
It was so interesting. We also had talks from people from our local university, from the disability support office in the university. And there were also people from the local employment service speaking, and a job coach from employability, which I was glad to hear as I am waiting to see a job coach at the moment.
Lunch was provided for us, and in the morning there was tea and coffee and scones and croissants. In the afternoon there were technology demonstrations. I got to see the newest braille display. The orbit its called. I have never owned a braille display before. I dont think I’d like one. I prefer apple products and my laptop.
Overall it was a great day. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be looking forward to giving the NCBI feedback on how the day went.
