In gratitude to our courageous military heroes, Judy Keene left corporate America two years ago to become a full-time volunteer and administrator for Next Step Service Dogs. Here, an inspiring group of people train service dogs for veterans with PTSD. Next Step trains rescue dogs to be amazing service dogs, whose job is to serve their veteran with trained behaviors that diminish or prevent seizures and sense anxiety.
To help those who are unable to afford the cost of a service animal, we created a guide that breaks down the total costs of obtaining a service dog, and provide a list of several alternative methods for financing these costs.
We also included a list of accredited organizations who provide complete or partial financial assistance for several different causes and individuals in need.

The new train carriages on the Heathrow Express are a masterpiece of design: cool, calm and emulating first class cabin fixtures and fittings. But how about the design of the service? It is seamless, relaxing and user-centric? This talk covers the basics of transport planning, but also considers how Service Design might help providers improve the experience at their touchpoints and how better design might be prototyped.
