Their collaborative work is filled with colourful conversations with creative, motivated and successful people, who are brilliant at what they do, and who achieve incredible things because of their dyslexia. Making them the perfect guests to help us shine a light on all things ‘Amazing Dyslexics’.To find out more about us and our various projects, visit movebeyondwords.co.ukThis podcast is part of a wider collaboration from the MoveBeyond Words team.Hosts: Elizabeth Arifien and Charlotte Edmonds.MBW’s project manager, Hannah GibbsPodcast Producer, Niall Killeney-TaylorArt and Design by Alex ColehanDigital and Social Media by Gaby WhitehillOriginal Score: Tom Parker
