Co-Founder & Managing Director
Liz Johnson is someone with an obvious passion and will to succeed, regardless of the challenges confronting her. Born with Cerebral Palsy, Liz grew up in Newport, Wales, and holds a business degree from Swansea University.
As a three-time Paralympic medallist, winning gold in Beijing as well as World and European championships on multiple occasions, Liz not only has first-hand experience of the challenges and stigmas associated with overcoming a disability but is also a great example of the incredible things that people can achieve given the right culture, environment, and encouragement.
After retiring from professional sport, Liz witnessed the harsh realities of job-hunting and the world of work for people with a disability and co-founded The Ability People to elevate awareness and change how society thinks about and views people with disability, changing the mindset and leading cultural change.
For her work in Disability Inclusion, she has been recognised as one of the BBC’s ‘100 Women’ and as one of the UK’s 100 most influential disabled people (Shaw Trust Power List)
Liz leads the talented individuals that comprise TAP’s consulting team.
