"Amy Kavanagh made a real impression on me and the Radio 4 audience. She is a powerful, passionate speaker with energy and spark. Amy makes her case fluently, and with a sense of humour. She should be listened to"
Emma Smith-Bodie, Muscular Dystrophy UK says:
"Working for a health and disability charity, I had some understanding about accessibility. But The Staying Inn training session really enlightened me about all the aspects of online activities we need to consider to ensure our whole community can be involved. Clever tactics, clear tips, this session was very helpful and Dr Amy Kavanagh was a great trainer."
Dr Hannah Mason-Bish of the University of Sussex says:
"I worked with Amy on a recent research project which was inspired by her "Just Ask, Don't Grab" campaign. She brims with enthusiasm and competence. Inventive in her thoughts and articulate in her words she made me want to be a better researcher. Her contribution to disability activism is immense as she brings forward new ideas and passion. "
Hannah Thompson, Royal Holloway University of London
"The best thing about the Digital Inclusion training was that it explained digital inclusion whilst modelling accessibility in its delivery. It was so refreshing to see this training delivered in an accessible way by the very people who best understand the needs of diverse groups. I cannot recommend highly enough."
Rebecca Rideal - Director of Hist Fest
"Amy is an informed, witty, and extremely engaging speaker who recently (and brilliantly) chaired a HistFest event exploring disability and the Industrial Revolution. More broadly, Amy's disability activism has directly inspired HistFest to up its game when it comes to the accessibility of online events. She's an important voice in our public sphere!"
Alan Benson, Chair of Transport For All
"Amy was awarded our 2020 Best Campaign Award in recognition of her efforts highlighting the barriers and poor attitudes disabled people face everyday. Her #JustAskDontGrab campaign in particular has been extensively covered in mainstream media and begun a transformative conversation."
