Speaking engagements

My multi-disciplinary experience gives me a unique perspective on how to effectively blend lessons and insights from a range of different marketing approaches. I bring this knowledge to bear when planning and delivering presentations and keynotes at marketing events and various industry conferences.

I focus on provoking my audience to act in a different way or think about their brand’s marketing in a new light whenever I’m on stage. Regardless of whether the audience is in-house marketers and communicators, business owners or agency professionals, I want to make sure everyone in the audience walks away with at least one challenging thought or actionable lesson from my presentations.
