Speaking Engagements

I regularly give invited presentations at business conferences and for internal events in companies.

My expertise is in using new big data sources, such as from social media, to understand customers and personalize messages and products. It is also in psychometrics, such as creating personality inventories and ability tests. Sometimes I combine the two, such as when I use social media data to automatically assess personality. You can look at my publications to get a flavour of my latest research.

Please note that I charge a speaking fee so that I can spend the proper amount of time to prepare a stellar presentation tailored to the audience.

If you are interested in inviting me to speak, please contact me using the methods listed here with details of your event.
