Entrepreneur

I’m an entrepreneur because…

David Butler sitting at his desk on his laptop and smiling.

I’d always had the desire to set up my own business, and becoming profoundly deaf in 2016 gave me the push to do it. I have a single cochlear implant and I wanted to find solutions for me and others in my situation because I struggled with noisy environments and using the phone. One of my businesses provides technical services to companies; the other helps people with disabilities to be more independent through the use of technology.

Even though I’m self-employed, Access to Work still provided me with a Roger Select radio aid which helps in noisy environments. They also provided me with Dragon Speech Recognition software and table mics that allow me to communicate successfully in meetings.

Going deaf motivated me to start not one but two businesses, allowing me to indulge my passions of finding solutions and helping others. My deafness has never held me back; in fact it’s enabled me to make a real difference for others.
