Stephy Hogan

Stephy is 2 parts designer, 2 parts developer, 3 parts perfectionist, and 1 part impatient mother. She’s a founding board member of the Presentation Guild board of directors, is a design engineer by day, runs her own business by night, barely plays guitar, and loves glitter. Once, she drove through a tire fire on a golf cart at work when she was a chemist. Now she enjoys making typically mundane experiences a lot more fun–like sitting through an 80-slide benefits presentation, dealing with that really crappy website, or reading this bio. Stephy Hogan is an accessible design expert who has been working in the design field for more than 20 years. She is an accessible design advocate at IBM, has created the Accessible Design Lab channel on YouTube, and is a frequent podcast guest and keynote speaker – including at the Creative Pro Network and Presentation Summit. As an ADHDer herself, her experience as a neurodiverse designer has driven her passion and purpose to get more people interested and involved in accessible design initiatives.

Creating accessible and inclusive presentation experiences doesn’t have to be boring or difficult. But where do you start? What exactly is accessible and inclusive design? Who are we building our presentations for? Stephy will reintroduce you to your audience and give you tips on how to create an equally amazing presentation experience for each of them--whether that's through how we speak or what we put on our slide.
