SilVR Adventures is delighted to welcome our newest Advisor to the Board, John Mckenna.
We’ve been improving the lives of older adults through meaningful and shared virtual reality experiences for nearly 4-years and in 2023 a key goal is to further our work in the disability sector – John brings a wealth of knowledge and abundance of passion to our business and his feedback after his first VR session was extremely profound.
As John says himself; “I love hearing people’s stories. I’ve worked as a empowerment advocate for over 30 years, working with people from all sectors of the community & their families in my hometown of Melbourne, Australia.
I worked with Australia’s major telecommunications provider in the area of accessibility to create communications solutions for seniors & people with disabilities. I was also an advisor during the establishment of Australia’s National Disability Insurance Scheme, one of the most ambitious social policy reforms for people with disabilities and their families.
During my 60 years of living experience, I have learnt from my own experiences and listened to others on a variety of ways to be empowered. Professionally, I continually share these learning experiences with people with intellectual disabilities and their families. My knowledge of resilience and awareness continually enables me to mentor and empower others.”
