KEYNOTE SPEAKER: We are thrilled to announce our 2017 keynote speaker, Bill Barkeley. Bill, who is deafblind as a result of Usher’s syndrome, is a former Fortune 500 company sales and marketing director who now travels all over the world as an adventurer and public speaker and storyteller. According to his website, Bill’s message, “motivates people to build a bold vision for themselves and not be defined by their disability but by their abilities”. As an active advocate for those living with deafblindness, he works with a number of disability-related groups. Bill will share his inspiring story and message about overcoming barriers with his talk, “Taking CHARGE: No Limits” on Friday morning to open the 2017 conference.
