One of the most inspiring people we’ve come across in the last few months on the Liverpool business scene is Dave Kelly.
Following the launch of his book Blind Man With A Vision in November 2022, Dave has been ubiquitous on the networking circuit, but actually, he’s been everywhere inspiring people across the region for decades.
Having turned blind almost overnight, Dave decided that his blindness wouldn’t define him. Instead it would inspire him to inspire others we wanted to go on record to highlight the difference Dave makes to so many people’s lives every single day, including through his charity Daisy Inclusive UK.
Amongst many other initiatives, including event speaker roles across the North West, Dave leads on diversity workshops based either at their Liverpool HQ or at clients delivering unique insights for teams into how to become more disability aware.
As he will tell you himself, the disability pound is worth £400b to the economy. Viewing from an ethics standpoint, that’s a very good reason for more businesses to take note, and diversity is something we’re constantly very keen to promote here at My Planet Liverpool.
