Along with doing a lot of writing, I’m lucky to have had opportunities to present to an audience – whether that’s as a live talk at a conference or other venue; participating in webcasts; or participating (and even hosting) podcasts and vlogs.
I have been doing this for over 40 years, since my early days as an actor, then as a teacher, and now as an IT practitioner. It’s no secret that I enjoy this facet of the work, and find both the direct interaction energizing and educational.
I’ve spoken to a wide range of audiences in the IT space, including:
- Technically Religious podcast
- The Current status
- Gestalt IT’s On-Premise podcast
- and more.
If you’re interested in having me speak at your event, contact me here.
