My foundation came via this Top Ten Speaking Tips blog post written a couple of years ago (which still holds up today).
Was a great experience to not only share some of the insights gained over my short speaking career, but as ever, deconstructing something you do with the purpose of sharing that knowledge, enriches your learning so much more.
My keynote presentation at this years professional organisation for the New Zealand library and information management profession (LIANZA).
My abstract: The opportunities to connect to audiences and markets are vastly changing due to the social layer the web and new technologies now offer. How can libraries leverage this rich source of interaction to aid their focus, deepen existing relationships plus help generate new ideas and solutions?
Thank you to the amazing (nearly 500 strong) crowd, the organisers, the tech staff etc
Here’s the humbling testimonial:
DK was an outstanding presenter — fast-paced, dynamic, fun and the audience just loved him! They loved his content too — challenging and ‘mind-melting’ but also with plenty of takeaway messages. His keynote was perfect as it delivered oodles of inspiration, and his workshop demonstrated how fast and easy it is to create exciting content in the social media world. He was very professional too, cool and calm during a few technical hitches, and great to deal with.
Social media killed mass Media (how social changed everything & nothing).
When we (the conference organisers) heard DK’s presentation on social media at a CORE Breakfast last year, we knew we wanted him to come and talk at the conference, and we were really excited about the eye-popping possibilities of social media in a classroom that he would introduce. We thought; we smiled. Thanks, DK! Diane Henjyoji, Conference Organiser
It was a great opportunity to revisit some of the topics I studied during my degree days and it was delivered as part of my role as Social Media Manager for CORE Education.
Special thanks to the organisers for both filming and allowing me to share. As stated in the talk, would love to be involved with the curriculum development specific to this subject—anyone out there listening / watching from NZQA? Please get in touch.
I’m available for hire if you liked what you saw / heard.
As always, I try to reference everything used but sometimes the content has no source or was collected years ago and has since been lost. Let us know if anything is yours and will certainly give proper credit.
Was humbled and honoured to be invited to speak to a group of young people who were attending The London Conference on Cyberspace and whom were getting ready to feed back their thoughts to the conference organisers and participants.
Thanks to the NSPCC who invited me, specifically Emily, and everyone behind the scenes who made it happen.
A ‘personal’ presentation for Nocci (now defunct)—check out the other presentations. Due to the transitions used in the presentation I can’t really use something like Slideshare so you can check it out on the second video (with the audio from the first vid overlayed).
