Speaking

Speaking

You will often find me speaking at technology-related events across the globe – I usually speak about information security, privacy, web development and design or about things related to databases (MySQL), also other topics. I would be happy to speak at your next event or a conference, develop and conduct a training session for your team or run a workshop too. I am also open to other opportunities.

I am constantly refining my public speaking skills and I aim to speak in such a way that blends both education and entertainment – I also prepare and rehearse my speeches in such a way that they feel organic and natural.
