SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS

I am an experienced presenter who is regularly invited to speak at local and international events. I'm comfortable delivering a message to a large audience, whether that be in a conference session, facilitating a hands-on workshop, participating in a panel discussion, delivering a webinar, recording a podcast, or being interviewed. I speak on a wide range of topics across software testing, test automation, agile, leadership, and community. 

If you wish to have me contribute to an event that you are running, please get in touch.
