Technological advancements of the fourth industrial revolution are changing the world at an unprecedented rate. We need different thinking but many of the top skills needed are in short supply. How do we fill the skills gap? Helen talks of being part of a Neurodiverse family, and struggling before learning that that being Neurodivergent can be a benefit in the workplace. She shares her vision to bring about a world where the Neurodivergent are valued, so that everyone can benefit. It starts with a conversation. Helen Needham is a Neurodiversity advocate, founder of Me.Decoded, and a financial services management consultant at Capco. She is focused on bringing about a world where the Neurodivergent are valued. Being part of a neurodiverse family, Helen has experienced first hand the challenges that being neurodivergent can have, and has seen what is possible with the right understanding, environment and support. This is something she wants for all Neurodivergent thinkers. A change she is already starting to bring about. Through Me.Decoded, Helen has provided an online platform where the Neurodivergent and allies can share their personal experiences and insights.
