Speaking

Like most people I’ve had a long journey from early days of being a reluctant public speaker. But over the years I’ve found that talking with an engaged audience about something I’m interested in can be a lot of fun.

Get in touch if you’re looking for someone to talk about user experience, managing uncertainty and change, facilitating collaborative processes, lean/agile research and creativity in general.

Most recently I’ve tested a talk (and workshop) on “facilitation for introverts.” It’s based on my experience as a reluctant-turned-somewhat-enthusiastic workshop facilitator. I think it’s important that more quiet types like me get more comfortable leading collaborative design and decision-making processes. The world needs a little more listening and reflection to happen when things are being made.
