SPEAKERS PROFILE

Over the past few years, I have had numerous exciting speaking gigs, from high schools, universities, high level corporate and government summits as well as tech, startup and innovation industry conferences across the Caribbean, USA, Africa, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

My keynotes cater to both tech-savvy and tech curious audiences who are seeking to understand the history and current status of Caribbean Tech Entrepreneurship, Innovation and the Startup Ecosystem; Women in Technology; the rise of Digital Caribbean; how the people, governments and businesses are positioning themselves for success in the Global Digital Economy; as well as Social Media, Digital Media, Digital Business and Digital Culture. I am also a sought after media commentator on these topics.
