Happy Anniversary, Visualise!

Dan Williams takes a look back over the past 6 years and how his business has evolved.

I can’t believe it’s been 6 years since I founded Visualise and as with all new ventures, it’s been a rollercoaster but my positivity and love for what I do has kept me moving forward.

When I was at school I never thought that I’d amount to anything because of my sight loss and the bullying didn’t help either, but I now realise I can achieve anything if I put my mind to it, just in a different way to most people.

The challenges I overcame made me stronger each time and gave me the confidence to keep developing new ideas; if something didn’t work, I’d learn from it, adapt and try again.

Visualise Training and Consultancy is now a successful social business which empowers all types of organisations to be visual impairment confident and improve the lives of thousands of people throughout the UK living with blindness or partial sight.

My message to anyone facing barriers is to give things a try as the chances are that you’ll achieve your aims, perhaps not first time, but with determination and hard work, you can get there if you believe in yourself and keep pushing forward.

The following BBC video was made just after I set up the business and I hope it inspires you to keep striving for whatever is your passion.

Keep positive and stay safe,
