Keynote presentations and hands-on workshops about content strategy, writing, and UX design

Delivering a breakout session during Confab 2018, a content strategy conference.

I deliver practical insights and hands-on training on topics like clarity, creativity, content strategy, user experience design, and information architecture.

My decks are packed full of ideas and inspiration, not text, and there's always something for your audience to reference, think on, and work with long after the event.

My speaking style is candid and conversational. I talk like a normal person, not a "thought leader" or motivational speaker.

I would love to keynote your event, deliver an in-house workshop, guest on your podcast, or visit your classroom or meetup group.
