This time were joined by the simply amazing Julie Howell of Fortune Cookie. If you have never met Julie before you in for a treat, you’ll never met anyone more passionate about making the lives of disabled people better. Living with MS and a lover of chocolate, Julie is someone you will never forget.
Julie Howell is Director of Accessibility at digital design agency Fortune Cookie. Prior to this she was the Digital Policy Development Manager at the Royal National Institute of the Blind (RNIB) where she worked for 12 years. She has worked with policy makers, information architects, manufacturers and software designers, businesses across all sectors and government agencies to ensure the accessibility to disabled people of digital information products and services.
Julie is just back from China, and is looking forward to discussing the current state of accessibility and lots more.

Hi Nicole, yes, it's in my diary and I shall be there!
Hi Julie! Looking forward to this.
Does anyone know who I should email/phone about my weird and funky dietary restrictions for this dinner?
@natalief - Ian Forrester (cubicgarden) is your man - click the link next to "added by" above,
We already try and separate the veg from meat. We also try and sort out vegans but could do much better in that department. Yep just comment here what your allergic to.
I did add a comment here but have now sent it to cubicgarden as a 'note' instead. I hope that it gets to you OK!
*tries to remember what she sent in the 'note'*
*wishes there was a 'sent notes' page on upcoming*
My food restrictions.
Please do let me know if this is going to be a problem and/or let me know what number to call to speak to the chef directly if that is easier...
Not working on the 26th, so gonna try to make it! It's been ages since I've been to one of these!
any info if this will happen at that date as I may be in town and would like to make fixed arrangements if so?
