These are just a few of the things attendees have said about my talks on content strategy, UX, and building a better web.

“Perfect. One of the most useful presentations.”

I’m currently booking speaking opportunities at conferences and corporate events in support of my new book (with Eric Meyer), Design for Real Life, and revisiting popular talks from my 2012 book Content Everywhere.
