Speaking Engagements

I have spoken internationally on education, collaboration and design thinking. When you bring me in as a speaker, you can expect to get a provocative talk filled with personal and often vulnerable stories that are a bit humorous and typically accompanied by hand-drawn slides.

I have been honoured to have been invited to speak at these conferences and schools about everything from bringing different perspectives to the table, getting down and dirty in designing new ways of thinking and questioning systems.
