About our Chief Accessibility Strategist

Stephen O’Keefe, our Chief Accessibility Strategist, provides consulting services to private, public, and non-profit organizations to help them comply with accessibility legislation and as a part of business strategy.  He draws upon his legal background and experience as a senior business leader and has lived experience of accessibility as he was born with a profound hearing loss.  


Stephen has a law degree from UBC, was the CEO of a national manufacturing business, and was the board chair of the Children’s Hearing and Speech Centre of BC. His TEDx talk, “How to Listen Better,” was translated into 22 languages.   

He also developed and starred in a web TV series through Telus’ Optik channel, “Listening in a Silent World”, and a documentary on his life and stand-up comedy interests was featured on PBS and CBC.   In his free time, he likes to hang out with his beloved Goldendoodle, who refuses to listen to him.
