Speaker Spotlight

In this moving and often funny talk from TEDxCanberra 2017, Wayne Herbert challenges some common myths about disability and sexuality. He explores the power of social labels and how they can affect one’s life in both positive and negative ways. Wayne knows there is much work to be done to improve the employment of people with disability. He knows all too well that as a country, Australia cannot let the skills and talents of people with disability go to waste. Wayne has a unique, humorous, thought-provoking, and challenging insight into the issues facing people with disability. He too has a disability, but is well-known for forgetting about it. ‘Is it wrong that I forget I have a disability? I just get on with things; I’ve got shit to do.’
