What Others Have To Say About Our Corporate Training Services
Art of Blinders
“I’ve sat through, facilitated, co-facilitated countless webinar based training’s & presentation’s throughout my career. Never have I experienced a “reality check” of humanity until I attended one of Mike’s virtual presentations. Not only was he humble, funny, entertaining, and knowledgeable, he made an inspiring impact with a simple recipe of awareness. Putting yourself in a vulnerable position to feel & live like a person with a disability with some of the exercises he had us do was mind-blowing. I personally want to get better every day, and when it relates to my career, Mike made me a better person & Learning/Development professional by the way he engaged so many online. I highly recommend attending or asking Mike to present to your organization because every one needs to learn from a masterful presenter like Mike. Thank you again & again Mike for the inspiring work you do on a daily basis!”David Hernandez, Global Onboarding Generalist, Alteryx

“Working with BIT on our accessibility implementation has provided our team with the tools to autonomously incorporate accessibility into our products from the planning stage through to completion. We brought in BIT to reduce our reliance on outside companies, allowing us to internally monitor compliance, reduce costs and produce the best possible products for all end users. Additionally, building accessibility into our internal systems broadens our ability to best support our employees with disabilities, cementing our commitment to diversity and inclusion. Bit’s unique and fresh approach provides an excellent orientation to the challenges and practical aspects of accessibility. The empathy exercises, discussions and practice with different accessibility tools were remarkably valuable. I recommend all organizations work with BIT to implement accessibility into their own development teams.”Mike Neville, Product Manager, Software App, Dish Network
As a financial institution, we were lacking awareness that technology could be the catalyst for accessibility. That is until Mike Hess and his team from Blind IT spoke at our Leadership Summit. Mike educated 150 of our leaders on how to be comfortable and confident in supporting employees with disabilities. We learned that when we are comfortable, we can make small tweaks in the way we work, leveraging what is already built into the technology we own, to better serve a variety of people with visible and invisible disabilities. From this single event and continuous partnership, Blind IT has helped Elevations kickstart our 2024 Disabilities campaign, to openly understand how we can support those who have a disability and better serve our entire workforce and our greater community.
