Conferences

I speak regularly on customer development and other lean startup tactics, user research, management, and driving behavioral change.

I also mentor and encourage diverse speakers with very different skillsets from my own – so if you’re a conference organizer who is trying to build a representative lineup, I will happily suggest some great speakers AND help them craft and practice their talks.
