SPEAKERS PROFILE

Over the past few years, I have spoken at dozens of venues, including high schools, universities, cultural events, high level summits and industry conferences across the Caribbean, the USA, Africa, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

My talks cater to both tech-savvy and technology, innovation and entrepreneurship curious audiences. They are seeking to understand the history and current status of Caribbean Tech Entrepreneurship and the Startup Ecosystem; the rise of Digital Caribbean, how the people, governments and businesses are positioning themselves for success in the Global Digital Economy; Social Media, Digital Trends, Digital Business and Digital Culture. I am also frequently sought after for insight and commentary in the media as a thought leader on these topics .
