Professional speaking engagements - making an Impact!

I have been an invited speaker at international conferences in many different policy venues, including in the European Parliament, where I also launched my book in 2012. I have spoken at academic conferences at leading universities, and in many different cities including  London, Berlin, Kiev, Washington and Barcelona.  I have presented on topics concerning Internet governance, including  copyright, privacy and human rights. 

I am a trained public speaker, and a member of Toastmasters International (Advanced Communicator Silver). I am happy to act as panel chair or moderator. The skills I value in public speaking are the ability to craft a speech tailored for the audience and the ability to keep to time.
