2017 public speaking engagements

Feb 2017 - NYC - "February '17: Wells Fargo, Mastercard, and Compass (ProductTank)

Presented a 13 minute talk on "How To Spike Adoption In Enterprise Apps".  Walked through the highs and lows of implementing a heavyweight Enterprise CRM (Salesforce.com) with lessons learned was the primary subject of discussion. Discussed the difference of building an Enterprise application with a large number of stakeholders and ever-changing requirements vs. Startup development. Additionally touched on how to raise adoption for an application that users don't necessarily "have to" use, and how to leverage psychology in interesting ways to help your cause.

Jan 2017 - NYC - "Design Disruptors: A Community Conversation" (ProductTank / nexTier / Lifion by ADP)

nexTier Innovations and Lifion by ADP, held a special event which included a Design Disruptors film screening and a guest panel discussion about the film and the current state of the product design industry. The panel included six design and management professionals that hail from startups, midsize and large globally known companies.  As a panelist I provided a viewpoint of the current state of design as experienced by a member of a large globally known organization.


I have enjoyed participating in panels and discussions for organizations such as the Wall St. Technology Association (WSTA) and ProductTank to name a few.  Helping businesses build better products is a passion of mine and any way to connect with more of them is something that I greatly enjoy.  Whether I'm speaking to the C-suite, senior leadership, technology and business professionals, or even college students, I try to bring a wealth of interesting information concerning current industry trends, real-life experiences, and some humor of course!
