The Access All team were shocked when Ellie Simmonds left this year's season of Strictly Come Dancing – the first person with dwarfism to compete on the show. But the dancing competition's loss is this episode's gain, as Ellie chats all things representation, ballroom, skydiving and her plans for the future. Why do we only ever hear about disabled dating, and never about long-term relationships? Presenters Nikki Fox and Emma Tracey talk about their experiences, plus provide some tips and advice. Billionaire Elon Musk might have bought Twitter, but he also reportedly sacked half of its staff including the entire accessibility team. So what does this mean for disabled people? BBC Click's Paul Carter and accessibility consultant Leonie Watson help us make sense of a wild week in social media.

In the latest episode of Climb in Consulting, Nick is joined by Michael Simmonds and Manfred Abraham, who are both Co-CEOs at Yonder Consulting. We don't often have two guests appearing at once, but this episode really does demand it! Their story, and that of Yonder, makes for a fascinating case study in how, by combining complementary skill sets and businesses with shared values, you're able to create something that is truly greater than the sum of its parts. Having worked closely together in their previous businesses, Michael at Populus and Manfred at BrandCap, they decided to join forces to form Yonder back in 2020. Fast forward to 2022, and Yonder is thriving. Despite the challenges of bringing their businesses together during the pandemic, they're now a growing firm of over 150 people, with offices across London, New York and Hong Kong. In this conversation, Nick chats with Michael and Manfred as they explore their journey to co-running Yonder. They discuss the lessons they've learnt along the way, including: - How they successfully merged their businesses and launched Yonder during the pandemic, the challenges both of these things caused for them and how they overcame them. - How Michael and Manfred are able to make co-running the business work, the structures they use, and their advice to others thinking of following a similar approach. - And how they've approached diversity and inclusion at Yonder. The practical steps they've taken and advice for others looking to create more of an open conversation about diversity and inclusion in their firm. If you want to understand how you can make a merger work - whether you're merging firm, practice or team - the advice that Michael and Manfred share in this one will give you a lots to think about.

Here's a challenge for you. Put on a blindfold and then ask a friend to run with you. I guarantee that you'll find it incredibly stressful! Now imagine swimming, biking, and running not just the two of you but with other competitors around you. Finally, imagine doing this at a pace that will allow you to break a world record or win a world championship medal. Guiding a visually impaired triathlete doesn't just mean having great fitness. It also requires great communication skills and the ability to build trust with your partner. Today's guest is Duncan Shea Simmonds. Duncan has been guiding for several years firstly with Haseeb Ahmed, and more recently with Iain Dawson who also joins us on today's show. Iain is a B3 visually impaired athlete and Duncan is his guide. In a few days' time they will be racing for Team England at the Para Commonwealth Games in the PTVI category.

In this inspiring interview, I talk with Bridgette Simmonds, the exceptionally talented life + leadership coach and founder of Limitless by Bridgette. We dive into her personal journey from corporate America to coach, speaker, and facilitator extraordinaire; the remarkable people who have influenced her life and work; and the greatest risks she has taken along the way. In the process, she shares her beliefs about the secrets to life and living fully and sage advice for overcoming our fears and living our purpose, passion, and dreams.
Persistence, determination, and passion for what you do can push you across the finish line. In this episode of I HAVE SOMETHING TON SAY, my dear sister Xaulanda Simmonds-Emmanuel, Chief Passion Seeker and Co-Founder of XauSky Group shares the angst and rewards of pursuing audacious career goals – all at once within a span of a few years! As an Industrial/Organizational Psychology Ph.D. Candidate researching the prediction of work passion, and entrepreneur with over 25+ years in leadership, business administration, and consulting, Xaulanda has experienced it all – from assuming a C-level role to relocating to accept a new and exciting job opportunity. Xaulanda has also navigated the rigors of raising a child, empty nesting, and committing to investing time, energy, and a lot of money into furthering her academic achievements while starting a new business. “I was at a point of my life where I didn't know what I was going to do after my daughter left. I was a master prepared Black woman in Corporate America who had the educational background to take on more leadership roles, but for some reason, I felt like I was not getting the opportunities to be in leadership positions within the organizations I was trying to break into. And I think that a lot of Black women and women of color can understand that plight. You've done what you can do professionally, working your way up that ladder, investing in your education, and for some reason, there seems to be this invisible barrier for you to be able to move forward. So, I thought, ‘well, if I have a Ph.D., that should open more doors for me',” Xaulanda shares. Through purposeful planning, intentional implementation, living creatively, and working passionately, she has learned how to inject clarity, confidence, and calm into the chaos of life and work, becoming a valuable resource to individuals, groups, and organizations that need help gaining clarity of their current state and future direction.

Ellie Simmonds has competed at four Paralympic Games, winning five gold medals and breaking world records on the way. She first came to national attention at the age of 13, when she won two golds at the Beijing 2008 Paralympics, and became the youngest person ever to be awarded an MBE a few months later. Ellie is the youngest of five children and was born with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism. Swimming was central to her life from a very early age, and her ambition to compete at the highest level was sparked by watching the Athens 2004 Paralympics on TV at the age of nine, when her mother told her she could take part at any age, as long as she was good enough. She became the face of the London 2012 Paralympics and won a further two gold medals, followed by another gold in Rio in 2016. Shortly after taking part in the Tokyo Paralympics last year, she announced her retirement from competitive swimming at the age of 26. She recently presented TV documentaries on conservation and on the controversies surrounding drug treatments for achondroplasia.

Episode 212: On the afternoon of January 27, 1993, the day before her 20th birthday, Sian Simmonds, a student who was working he way through school, was found dead in her basement suite in the Guildford neighbourhood of Surrey, B.C. She had been shot and bludgeoned. Neighbours had heard screams coming from her suite. Only days later, a man named David Schlender was arrested. Already on bail for the attempted murder of one of his cocaine dealers the year before, Schlender told police he'd been hired by another man, Brian West, to commit the murder in exchange for wiping an outstanding drug debt. The investigation of Brian West led to another man, Josephakis Charalambous, the Simmonds' family doctor who had hired West to murder Sian. Eighteen months before her murder, Sian and her older sister Katie had filed grievances with the BC College of Physicians and Surgeons alleging sexual assault by Charalambous. Rather than face censure by the College and risk losing his substantial annual income, Charlambous had sought to silence the girls. As the truth came out about the doctor, his carefully constructed facade of the community minded healer came tumbling down revealing an ugly pattern of violence and predatory behaviour toward young women and girls.
