Speaking & Teaching

an empty stage

I like teaching people.

And I’m oddly comfortable in front of a crowd, which works out well.

Over the past few years, I’ve spoken in front of thousands of people and helped them better understand email and the web—giving them the resources and knowledge they need to improve their work, grow their businesses, and connect with subscribers and customers in the process.

Whether it’s a conference talk or a lengthy workshop, I focus on using practical examples and hands-on learning to make sure everyone takes something away that can be implemented immediately.

While most talks and workshops focus on HTML and CSS, design, development, strategy, and copywriting, recently I’ve been teaching people about accessibility and building inclusive communities with web technologies.

I’m available for conference talks, workshops, webinars, and consulting. Email me to get the conversation started.
