6.30pm AGM, 7.00pm Refreshments, 7.30pm Talk.

Room TC103, University of Gloucestershire, Park Campus, Cheltenham, GL50 2RH

Paul Hawes - MD Sensory Software International, Malvern


Ever wondered just how Stephen Hawking talks, or how a child with severe cerebral palsy uses Facebook? 

I never had any intention of working with computers, but a chance encounter led me to being asked to join a start-up. It failed, but set me off on an unexpected journey into Assistive Technology. 

The talk will cover the way that assistive technology is helping people with all kinds of disabilities, along with a personal perspective on the development of this exciting and worthwhile industry.
