Prior to setting up my digital accessibility business in 2003, I worked for a voluntary sector organisation called, The Wellbeing Initiative. I managed their information service, enabling trainees to complete tasks as part of the SVQ in business administration. They completed their training while running a real information service.
Between 1996 and 2003 I worked as a lecturer at Glasgow Caledonian University teaching research methods and statistics. And at the same time managed a not-for-profit organisation called The Making Connections unit which was one of the first accessibility consultancies in the UK.

CLOSER – the home of longitudinal research
We requested a root-and-branch evaluation of our website to help inform its development, and in a short space of time Jim and his fantastic team put together an incredibly comprehensive report that fulfilled every aspect of our brief.
He was able to identify specific instances of non-compliance, as well as highlight recurring themes and issues and make recommendations to ensure that our web presence not only complies with WCAG AA standards but is fully optimised for usability. Moreover, the first-hand feedback from his auditors provided an invaluable insight into the UX of users with disabilities.
I’d be delighted to recommend Jim and his colleagues to anyone looking to make their web presence accessible to the widest possible audience. Alex Norton (Communications Manager, CLOSER)
Talking About Tomorrow – A Contact microsite
Jim’s involvement was absolutely central in enabling us to get this very ambitious website up and running. From first discussions to final launch, he supported us and worked with us to create a unique information hub for parents and carers of young disabled people. The feedback we have received since the launch has justified the time, attention to detail and energy invested in the project, and we could not have delivered anything on this scale without Jim’s creativity, experience and sound advice. Thank you Jim!
