Business Client testimony (Half-day Workshop)
“I was the event organizer and hiring manager for a company-wide seminar on inclusion and product accessibility. We hired Martha to design and run an interactive virtual workshop for 50+ people on the principles of Universal Design. Martha blew us away with her thoughtfulness, creativity, professionalism, and expertise.
The event ran without a hitch and was expertly tailored to our product category and company culture. She had us take a hard look at the work we do, from the language in our manuals, to our product design all the way to our marketing videos. She not only introduced us to Universal Design, she inspired us to actually create and pitch new ways to make our products and customer experience more inclusive and accessible.
This was a transformative day for me and our entire company that we will remember and benefit from for many years to come. We are so grateful to Martha and could not recommend her and Product Accessibility LLC more highly. “– Zach Shivers (He/Him) Visual Content Manager StoreBound | Dash | Sobro
