CEO Network

The CEO Network is a quarterly forum for CEOs of Deaf and Disabled People’s Organisations (DDPOs). Our network gives CEOs the opportunity to meet together for peer support, to share information, explore relevant topics and receive tailored expert briefings and advice on the latest policy, business and organisational issues affecting the DDPO sector.
