About the Trainers:

Adi Latif:

Adi is an inclusive design professional and a strong advocate for access to the web for all. A graduate from the Strathclyde business school in Scotland, he’s experienced in accessibility user testing, management consulting and training.  He also has over 15 years of experience in using screen-reader technology for the blind. Loves to play the guitar and discover new places in London. He currently works as a Usability and Accessibility consultant at AbilityNet, a charity who work with large and small organisations from all sectors to improve the usability and accessibility of digital products and services. Previous experience includes working for Accenture and also the world’s first blind professional snowboarder.

Adam Tweed:

Adam studied Film at University, specialising in screenwriting, and as a penniless writer, built his own PC. This led to an initial love (/hate) of all things tech and ultimately to a career in IT where he worked both in the commercial sector and then as a network manager in secondary education. He then retrained in Psychology through the OU and joined a private psychological practise carrying out psychometric testing. The move to AbilityNet combined both Psychological and technological passions. Adam’s main interests lie in the interactions between humans and technology and the increasingly blurred lines between the two. He believes “if you can break it; it’s been designed badly” and that the best tech is the stuff you shouldn’t need to think about.
