Ken Carter is the Founder of Deafax and is now the Director of the Deafax Research and Development Unit. He attended Millfield School on a Sports Scholarship and has studied at Loughborough, Surrey and London Universities. In his early years, he excelled at sport and undertook National Service duties as a Royal Marine Commando. When he became a parent of a deaf daughter, he trained as a Teacher of the Deaf and went on to work as an Advisory Lecturer in Special Educational Needs.

He has been responsible for helping to create as an entrepreneur METEC (Medical & Educational Technology Enterprises Consortium) which are 10 charities/companies limited by guarantee. For his contribution to preventative medicine and healthcare, he was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine in 2007. In 2009 he was awarded an Honorary Degree from Loughborough University as part of their Centenary Celebrations and recently recognized as a Distinguished Old Millfieldian.

One of his many attributes has been to network extensively throughout the world with individuals associated with Information & Computer Technology, Politics, Music, Companies/Foundations and Academics who have helped enormously to enhance his pioneering work mainly in the field of Innovative Technologies and Inclusion. Probably the most influential person has been Dr Vinton Cerf, the architect/inventor of the Internet and Google’s Chief Internet Evangelist who is now Deafax’s Honorary President.
