Meet the Team!

Pete- Director

Pete is the owner and Director of Speech Link Multimedia. Prior to the company being born, Pete was a software developer. When Derry told him her idea about online SLCN screening tools, they combined their skills to bring the vision to life! Speech Link emerged as a company, and Pete has led us from strength to strength, with his vision and commitment to the SLCN cause!

Derry- Developer

Derry is the initial developer of Speech Link's products. When working as a SaLT for the NHS, she was posed a challenge- is there a cost and time effective way of helping schools to tackle SLCN? She went to Pete who, as a software developer could help her bring vision of an online screening tool to life. Since then Derry has used her incredible expertise to expand and test our range of products. Connect on LinkedIn
