Educational / Motivational

  • Shane has had great success in delivering quality and unique lectures to university students studying in a variety of disciplines
  • ACS Disability Equality lectures and workshops have the added bonus of being adapted to various target audiences and different durations
  • Consulting organisations and staff on relevant disability practices and providing an insight into what it is like to be a person with a disability accessing a service.  Shane is open to a variety of delivery methods (presentations,  open discussions,  being involved in working parties)
