Public Speaking

I love speaking at events and conferences and pride myself on being able to engage any audience. I'm able to draw on different personas depending on context and audience - from lecturer and teacher to coach and evangelist. Communication is a two-way street and I always aim to leave my audience happier, more excited, and with at least one light-bulb moment to take away. Public speaking Simone Kurtzke
