I offer lively speeches and workshops
on digital psychology and
data science.

If you’re interested in having me
speak at your event or
run a workshop,
reach out.

An old list of past speaking gigs.

Sorry, but I’m speaking/training 30 or more times per year, 
and so I got too busy to keep updating this list.

However, my hot speaking topics include
various digital psychology talks and
the neurochemistry of motivational web design.
