I love talking about the work that I do, and have spoken at conferences and events in the UK, Europe, Asia and Australia. Mostly (but not always) about the digital workplace or social media.

If you’re coming to any of these events, do connect with me on social, or say hello if you see me. You can also see events I’m attending on Lanyrd.

If you are looking for someone to come and speak at your conference or event, please get in touch.

I’m based in London, but as you can see here I’m pretty mobile.

Here’s a small sample:
