Speaking

Great speakers tell stories. They don't deliver talks! 

Boring panels that exclude your audience, death by PowerPoint, and technical monologues sabotage your sustainability events! My unchanging principle is to focus on your audience’s needs and curate a story around their values while merging simplicity with eloquence. You need a dynamic and unconventional speaker to elevate your next event! I’ve been tested globally, having presented at thought leadership forums with diverse audiences across Africa, North America, Asia, South America, and Europe, coupled with specialized events at top institutions such as Stanford and Wharton.
