Neurodiversity a forgotten part of the diversity discussion? 

Led by Edward Keelan, Partner at Octopus Ventures.

Creating more diverse teams has rightly become front and centre of many debates, but one area of diversity often gets forgotten or at best misunderstood. Neurodiversity.

Edward Keelan is a Partner at leading venture capital firm Octopus Ventures. He is also dyslexic and spent the first 11 years of his life in the remedial hut outside of the main school. What can we do in our workplaces to make them more attractive to those with dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, autism, and the many other identified neurodiverse conditions? And, specifically, for sales, we know it’s a division unlike any other and so perhaps its one where, if given the right support, those with a neurodiverse background can thrive.


This talk aims to try and help debate and understand both the challenges and opportunities in more depth.
