"Hands down, he’s the best speaker I've hired in many years -- and the best kept secret in the world of speaking."
I love speaking! Each year, I present keynote talks at about 50 conferences, trade shows, and companies. I also conduct onstage interviews and frequently serve as master of ceremonies for events. (I was the emcee for the last two years’ Technical Emmy Awards, for example, and the IBM’s 2014 Pulse convention.)
Maybe the word “talk” doesn’t quite describe it. I usually finish by sitting down at the piano and performing a couple of my tech-industry song parodies (like “Don’t Cry For Me, Cupertino” and “I Got YouTube”).
Here are some of the talks I've presented recently. I'm always happy to adapt them to suit the occasion. Click on a title to learn more about the talk.
