TERRA’s Planet Deaf Fantastic! Expo took place on Monday 13 July 2015. It was a great day with a hundreds of D/deaf people of all ages attending! The event was packed with curious people who visited the stalls and enjoyed the presentations. We had feedback from all that it was an informative and fun day! The venue was perfect and everything was well organised. Everyone said they learnt a lot and laughed
The day started with a welcome note from TERRA, the leading provider of BSL interpreting and translation services for D/deaf people. Terra are the event organisers and they welcomed everyone to the Expo and invited them to look around the stalls, watch the presentations and learn from all the available information.
This was followed by presentations from; VivasPro, Arbonne, the Royal Association for the Deaf (RAD), Deafinitely Theatre and the Midi Music Company. All these companies gave really interesting signed presentations about their services, what they can offer D/deaf people and how they can help the deaf. Everyone in the audience watched the presentations attentively and said how much they enjoyed them. There was even a deaf story teller whose various stories about his experiences were adventurous and interesting – the audience loved it!
There were stalls and information available from VivasPro, the Royal Association for the Deaf (RAD), Deafinitely Theatre, the Midi Music Company, Arbonne, Doncaster Communications College, Deaf Roots, SEA Recruitment, the University of Wolverhampton, Terra Signing Academy, YouMeSign, Sam2Sam and All Communications Network (ACN)
There were lots of opportunities for D/deaf people to speak to these companies, ask questions and get advice and information about education, employment, benefits, setting up a business, leisure activities, health and beauty.
The “CV Clinic” was extremely popular. It offered D/deaf people free advice about how to improve their CVs so they are better prepared to apply for jobs and get interviews.
Dr. Osmanovic from TERRA Consultancy gave the closing presentation “
Try Your Wings
”, which was fantastic. She explained how D/deaf people can achieve their dreams in work and in business by changing their mind-set, being confident and taking positive action. After watching the presentation, many D/deaf people said they felt they had a better understanding of how to set up their own business and had an increased confidence about the skills needed to succeed in the workplace.
The feedback about the Planet DeaFantastic! Expo was that it was a wonderful day and everyone had a great time. All the stalls and information were very useful to the D/deaf. People said that they had been given good advice and had learnt a great deal from the presentations and stalls, whilst also having fun.
Many people were asking “When is the next Planet DeaFantastic Expo?”

We are delighted to announce a special event called the PLANET DEAFANTASTIC EXPO - an action packed day for everyone on 13 July 2015.
The event is aimed at Deaf and disabled people and reducing social isolation. It also tackles lack of employment and educational opportunities for Deaf and disabled people. Planet Deafantastic is an initiative we have launched to do something positive about this!
More importantly, Deaf and disabled people often suffer from the inability to access information even though it seems readily available to them. There seem to be opportunities and information everywhere, yet Deaf and disabled people often face barriers to accessing these opportunities and information. It's like they are walking in the daylight but they cannot see.
To take part in this event, we invite you to book a place/or stall and present your service and products.
Please note that places are limited and we urge you to book early to avoid disappointment.
