to talk about hearing loss
In 2015, I launched #HearingLossHour as a time to talk about hearing loss, once a month on Twitter, in the hope that it would help others with hearing loss to feel less isolated. A year later, Phonak sponsored the hour to ensure its continuation.
In 2018, Royovac became the new sponsor of #HearingLossHour.
#HearingLossHour now takes place at 1pm on the first Tuesday of the month. We hope you'll join us because it really is time to talk about hearing loss."

"When I lost my hearing suddenly, I felt quite isolated. I found it too hard to communicate with people face-to-face, and I didn't know anyone my age who had hearing loss.
Using Twitter helped me to connect with people without the need to hear them, and helped overcome the feeling of isolation.
With a friend, I set up #Yorkshirehour, a weekly business networking event on Twitter. It was a great success, and that got me thinking: could a #HearingLossHour help bring people together in the same way?
