I’m available internationally for public speaking engagements at conferences, seminars, hackathons and other events. I also deliver training workshops, especially on storytelling in the field of technology and finance.

Recently I’ve done this for Siemens, Porsche Digital, TEDx, Coca-Cola, McKinsey, SAP, The BBC, Gaza Sky Geeks/ Mercy Corps, King’s College London, The British Council, CODE University, Techfugees, and many more.

I’m especially interesting in speaking, moderating, training and judging competitions on the following topics:

• Storytelling
• Technology & innovation
• Tech for good
• Resilience
• Creativity & creative problem solving
• Pitching
