Speaking

I have been privileged to exchange ideas on climate action and sustainable development across Africa, North America, Asia, South America, and Europe. My speaking experience is dynamic ranging from major conferences with diverse audiences, to specialized events at top institutions such as Stanford Law School and Wharton Business School. Polished over the years, my style is a rhythmic dance, where conviction and mastery of topic, merge with simplicity and eloquence.

Speaking is a dialogue. My goal is to capitalize on the ability to inspire my audience into reflection and action, by crafting the message around their values. I believe that knowledge can only grow when we share it. Platforms present a golden opportunity to encourage humanity to tap into our under-utilized potential to co-create solutions, towards tackling the climate crisis and securing a sustainable planet.
