Talks & Workshops
I love sharing the stories of innovation and inspiring audiences to think differently.
I speak at conferences big and small, and to audiences spanning all segments of society.
I tailor-make and create lectures and workshops to fit your group’s need.
Some examples of talks and workshops I've given:
Part innovation news, part innovation history, part research insights, part lessons of failure, and part innovation analysis. Innovation Stories is a lecture that constantly changes because innovation moves fast and new solutions are constantly evolving.
Humor can invoke positive interactions. So, what is humorous technology? How can it improve our lives? This talk is based on my MA research published by CHI, the premier international conference of Human-Computer Interaction.
You pick the topic, I'll do the research, writing and presentation. Perfect for corporate learning and company fun days.
What are some of the best failures in innovation? How have these failures triggered new innovations? And what lessons can be learned – and taught – because of these flops?
There are many sheroes (women admired or idealized for their courage, outstanding achievements, or
noble qualities) -- glass ceiling breakers, and role models, and social innovators and pioneering tech leaders. Do you know who they are?
Startup Pitch & Pitch Deck
I help early-stage entrepreneurs pitch their stories to investors to accelerate sales, and tell the world how their solution solves problems.
Good data and great content aren’t enough. You need to know how to tell the story of what you’re doing and why it matters. So, whether you need a one-minute pitch; five-minute pitch; or even a read-only pitch deck presentation – knowing how to use the data and insights in an engaging way is the only way to get desired results.
Effective storytelling can lead to raising startup capital and winning over a customer base.
I can help you create effective pitch decks and structure your (company’s) story.
How to Tell A Story
We all tell stories. But the best storytellers guide listeners to hear their message, connect with the
audience and engage them, and serve up memorable messages. In this workshop, I share tips on how to tell great stories with structure and purpose; make complex ideas digestible and easy to understand; tell stories that appeal to the audience’s
emotions. Any topic has the potential of being a great story. It is about how you tell the story that will keep – or turn away -- your audience.
Value of Content in Context
How to put content in context is important so that your audience perceives and understands the value of your product. Book me to help your team align its content in context so that everyone gets the same message about your company’s value.
Seven seconds is all it takes to win or lose your audience. In this workshop, you will learn how
to create powerful openings. How to build and organize a presentation so that it tells a story. How to bring your information to life. How to choose the right words. How to tailor your presentation to your audience. And how to deliver impactful messages to any audience.
