Public Speaker

Public Speaker on e-democracy, e-participation, open government, and civic technology …

“You were so colorful, credible, interesting . . .”

I tell the story of the future of democracy, community and governance in the information age.  I bring e-democracy to life through real examples and insights. These are based on my direct experience with E-Democracy.org and lessons gathered in-person and online around the world.

Through hundreds of speeches across 30+ countries, I have shared my uniquely optimistic yet pragmatic vision of the opportunities and challenges ahead.

Download and read some of my examples speeches and slides below. I am available as a speaker, panel moderator/participant or training leader on democracy online. This includes open government, civic technology, e-democracy, e-government, online consultation, online communities and citizen participation, politics online and related topics.

Please note that with my full-time work for E-Democracy over recent years, I’ve focused on in-depth lesson sharing tied to our BeNeighbors.org initiative. Now with 20 years in the field, I am hitting the keynote circuit once again with new major keynote speech. Stay tuned. 

I work with my hosts to tailor my speech/training to the needs of their conference or organization. With my base of experience, from Prime Ministers to citizen groups, I can speak at a moments notice and connect at the appropriate level with any audience.
