Hi, my name is shirleyfogge!

I am a free thinker, with a 36 year Executive career. I am inspiring, knowledgeable and thought that when Mr. BRANSON said "work with me" he was providing opportunities for the challenged....resent disabled to work for him. I lost millions 10 years ago when my spouse's walked out with my money. I have been imaginative and started my own company buying, collecting  and the off chance before moving to FL could sell them. I know one of Richards Brandon's friends Steve BENNETT. I know he works with the Colourful Life Foundation. I can't go one hour without pain and will always be challenged, like Steven Hawkins I use my brain, wits and if you ever met me would never know I was challenged. I want this opportunity to meet with Richard Branson. Most Linkedin readers like my comments as they are Whittier than Richard's.  Is he going to help more than one person

    Hi @shirleyfogge
    Welcome to the community! 

    Work With Me is a campaign to support disabled people into employment. We have teamed with Virgin Media in this project. It is to raise awareness and offer support to all disabled people.

    More than a third of disabled people don’t think they will be hired because of their impairment or condition. And two in five disabled people don’t feel confident about their chances of getting a job in the next six months. 
    Teaming up with Virgin Media, we are shining a spotlight on the barriers disabled people face getting into and progressing in work.
    Together, we’re calling on employers, Government and the public to tackle these issues.
