The Phil & Simon Show No 26 - guest Susan Scott-Parker

Dec 12, 2018, 05:21 PM

Our guest this month is Susan Scott-Parker OBE. Susan has over 30 years of experience working with business on disability as Founder of the Business Disability Forum (BDF) and now as an international consultant advising organisations, NGOs and governments on disability issues.

As CEO of the BDF, she signalled to colleagues, customers, and government that disability is a business and a societal priority. Susan pioneered the world’s first leadership programme for people with disabilities, in partnership with the Coverdale Organisation.

Among other things, Phil and Simon ask Susan what lay behind her decision to settle in the UK and what her proudest moments have been. They then focus on what concerns Susan in terms of disability equality and fairness today and what is on the horizon.

Phil and Simon are long-standing Associates of the Business Disability Forum and as result have a unique view of working with the organisation and with Susan over the many years she was at the helm.
