Kate Griggs

Founder - Made By Dyslexia, Global

Kate Griggs is the founder of Made By Dyslexia, a global charity led by successful dyslexics here to help the world understand, value and support dyslexia. She is leading the charge to disrupt the worlds thinking around dyslexia and championing the value of Dyslexic Thinking skills which are vital for the workforce of the future.

The world of work is changing fast, with AI replacing many jobs and creating an urgent need for new skills. EY’s Value of Dyslexia report found that dyslexics have exactly the skills needed for this new world of work. Intelligence Agencies have long embraced dyslexic thinking, and businesses globally are now recognising dyslexia as a valuable skill set. Education urgently needs to change because the traditional focus on measurement and conformity is disadvantaging dyslexic students. In this talk Kate explains Dyslexic Thinking and tells us how we can ALL become agents of this urgent change.
