Before you say no or turn thumbs down on these suggestions; consider these thoughts.

You can definitely increase your revenue and reduce both your internal and external costs and here’s how.

Take it from me! I have been an accessibility awareness consultant and advisor since 1998 and I continue to help companies to increase their revenues, reduce their costs, and reach hidden consumer markets!

Now as a sight loss coach I am helping consumers with sight loss to become more aware of their environment and their requirements and this is helping companies to have a better understanding of how they need to plan and execute their initiatives.

As we continue to slowly creep out of this Pandemic, more persons; especially our seniors and persons with a disability are looking to find some events that will be easy to access and that will be safe to attend. This means a slow return to face to face and in person events.

I believe that virtual events will continue to take place but with time the live events will start to replace the virtual events. I will suggest that we keep our events to small sizes for now; no more than 20 persons at the very most.

  • Get togethers at restaurants with tables appropriately distanced. Indoor dining is a good idea and weather permitting outdoor dining is also good. Keep up the social distancing and the hand sanitizing.
  • Under 20 person gatherings to enjoy some types of card and board gamesbut make sure that hand sanitizing and social distancing are adhered to.
  • A hiking outing weather permitting where social distancing is adhered to and persons can walk in groups of two or three.
  • Weather permitting, maybe a small group of persons on a walking tour.

This should be a good start for you.
