My Speaking Rates

In 99% of the instances I am more than happy to talk or hold any event pro-bono as long as all standard expenses are covered. Regardless of where it's taking place in the world, I would love to share my knowledge, experience and time on a variety of topics ranging from complex design theories to remote work. Feel free to contact me to discuss.
