CEO, Delsion

Delsion is a multi-award-winning equality, diversity and inclusion consultancy that supports organisations to put equality, diversity and inclusion at the heart of their business.

Combining over 20 years of senior level human resources experience with lived experiences of the barriers people can face to be included, Delsion was founded by Julian John to offer a leading-edge approach to driving the culture and people change that makes truly inclusive workplaces. 

Julian is listed in the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development’s D&I Powerlist, as one of the most influential disabled business leaders in the UK and has been awarded the Institute of Directors Director of the Year for Inclusivity. Delsion made Swansea the first Disability Confident City in the UK and is the first accredited Disability Owned Business Enterprise outside of the US.

“The opportunity for us all, every day, is to seek and support an equitable world where the barriers that disabled people face are eliminated. For me and the work I do, that’s through engaging and educating the business world to ensure that every organisation is positive about potential and where Wales and the UK becomes the leading nation for the inclusion of disabled people in the workplace.”
