Public Speaking

My Availability

I’m available internationally for public speaking engagements at conferences, seminars and hackathons, especially those that deal with:

  • Creativity & creative problem solving
  • Pitching
  • Startups and tech, especially educational technology (edtech)
  • Refugee related technology and crisis relief

I am also happy to moderate panels on any of these topics, and judge hackathons and pitching competitions. Here’s a summary of my experience:
