At11.30 am four Honorable invited speakers came to share their experiences in disability related work. 1. Mrs. Jamnan Siritan (President of Radio Television Broadcasting Professional Federation) She spoke on the themes of empowerment and strengthening the capacity of Persons with Disabilities to work together, thus ensuring the quality of life of staff (health, salary, safety and future). 2. Mr. Mike Plaxton (CEO of Krungthai AXA Life) He spoke about Krungthai AXA’s initiative to actively recruit Persons with Disabilities for roles which stemmed from the capability of PWDs for existing positions, and not the creation of special or new positions for Persons with Disabilities. 3. Mr. Christophe Lejeune (Director of Human resources, Accor Thailand, Cambodia, Laos) spoke on the key to management being people. He focused on the importance of creating a fulfilling work environment for staff being key to good performance, and also to listen to staff problems and challenges. He further advised that he tried to make staff see that much of the solution should not come from his advice, but that the solution to the problem should come from themselves. 4. Mrs. Chalida Tajaroensuk (Director of People’s Empowerment) spoke on the importance of Persons with Disabilities in having confidence to speak and present themselves. She emphasized that to push forward the movement of PWDs issues, cooperation from different areas is needed. Conversation Stage On Key to Management
The ceremony concluded at 13.00 in the afternoon. The Open House provided an opportunity for all attendees to enjoy the games and activities, network, make new friends and learn more about the movement of PWDs.

It showed that all can work together on the same goals which include full participation and equal opportunity for Persons with Disabilities in society.
