At the core of myself is a massively introverted individual whose heart jumps into his mouth when his phone rings or someone tries to talk to me who I don’t know.

Public speaking for years was my nemesis. When confronted with the possibility of talking in front of more than a couple of people, I would run for the hill. But, as a fitness coach once said, you must ‘work on your weaknesses’. So I did.

Here are a collection of my more recent talks. Unfortunately, some are behind paywalls, but those conferences had other incredible speakers, so it might be worth trying to get your company to pay for a digital pass!
