Speaking Engagements

My life’s mission is to put humanity back into business, and I consider it a privilege to evangelize the principles and philosophy of User Experience at conferences and in boardrooms around the world.

My presentations have been attended by more than 11,000 audience members in 20 cities across 4 continents, and have been viewed more than 250,000 times on Slideshare.

If you are interested in having me speak at your company or event, please get in touch at [email protected]
