WCEU 2014 Speaker: Graham Armfield

Hey guys, we’re really glad to welcome Web Accessibility expert Graham Armfield from the UK.

Graham is a Web Accessibility Consultant for his own company Coolfields Consulting. He helps organisations improve the accessibility of their websites, and works with them to embed accessibility into their business processes. He also develops accessible WordPress websites for small to medium sized businesses and charities. He’s an active member of the Make WordPress Accessible team, and has spoken about web accessibility at quite a few WordCamps. He’s also led accessibility groups at WordPress contributor days.

When not making the web a more accessible place you might find him playing his guitar and writing songs. He turned his back on the rock lifestyle a few years ago, but now performs his songs solo at open mic nights near where he lives.

He was born many moons ago in South London, and he hasn’t strayed very far from there since – he now lives in Surrey with his wife and young daughter.

WordCamp Europe is almost here, so stay tuned to the most recent developments from the organising team on TwitterFacebook, and Google +
