Speaking engagements

I am really passionate about education. My talks aim to teach and inform, not impress. I am very grateful to have had the chance to travel the world and speak about data visualization, design and open source.

If you are interested in having me speak, please contact me directly. For corporate engagements, please contact hello@bocoup.com

Slides can often be found here.

These have become a bit hard to track, so these are some selected talks.
