I love sharing what I’ve noticed, what I’ve learned, and what I see coming next.

One of the ways I do this is through workshops and speaking engagements on creative careers, entrepreneurship, and new adventures in learning.

Over the past few years, I’ve led over 200 workshops, keynotes, labs, and masterclasses, as well as moderating panels and hosting hackathons.

FAQ

Why you, and what's the vibe?

Whatever I’m doing, I'm not into pitching services or pummeling an audience with rehashed, repetitive content. Speaking is no different. I focus on delivering something that creates a shift in people to feel inspired, energized, and eager to start conversations and take action (I’m someone who hated lectures at school and university, after all).

Every talk or workshop I create is customized for the audience, and there will probably be some alternative pop culture references in there too.

What about hosting an event or moderating a panel?

As well as speaking, I love being the spotlight operator (hosting and moderating) just as much as being in the spotlight as a speaker.

I’ve been a host and moderator for sessions featuring people from companies such as Apple, Adobe, The New York Times, Glastonbury Festival, SXSW, Duolingo, Airbnb, Sonar Festival, and many more.

My work as a professional coach definitely comes in useful here. To get an additional flavor of my hosting style, check out some of my podcasts

Can I watch some of your talks?

The majority of speaking and workshops are done for private clients, but I do have videos from a select number of sessions. If you're interested in viewing them, just send me an email

Can I see your speaker's bio?

Yep - it's right here >

Do you ever speak for free?

Creating engaging and well-designed presentations takes a lot of time, energy, and effort so I don’t tend to speak for free, with two exceptions: charities and nonprofits with a mission close to my heart; and opportunities to visit places I haven’t yet been to and really want to check out.

Are you in one of those locations, or run a charity or nonprofit?
