Hire Me to Speak

Hire Me to Speak


Speaking at Ignite Gotham (Photo by Amber Marlow)I’m a SXSW audience favorite and popular public speaker on the topic of telling your story (or your organization’s story) in order to achieve your goals. 

Hire me to speak at your event.

Here’s a sampling of the places I’ve spoken:

  • SXSW (voted audience favorite)
  • Ignite Gotham and Ignite DC 
  • National Press Club
  • National Film Board of Canada
  • Etsy Success Symposium
  • National Arts Marketing Conference
  • Nonprofit Technology Conference
  • Online News Association annual meeting
  • American Press Institute
  • WGBH Producers’ Workshop

A long-time improv comedian, I also speak about applying the concepts of improv to life and work, and my experience thinking on my feet helps me adapt any talk on the fly based on an audience’s interests, challenges and mood. Whether speaking to a room of stressed out nonprofit professionals struggling with how to mobilize more support or a crowd of artists and freelancers who are shy about self-promotion, I leave people feeling energized and activated. I customize every talk I give based on what will inspire the people listening, what worries them and (importantly) what amuses them. 

Just for fun, here’s a video of me hosting the Games for Change awards:
