About San‎ > ‎Previous Experience‎ > ‎


I love sharing knowledge and learning, so I seldom employ a 'PowerPoint' lecture style of presentations. The only exceptions might be high-level meetings with conservative government officials, and even then, I try to be creative and engage everyone. My facilitation skills kick in so that the audience is truly participating, and we learn from everyone else as well. Below is a list of selected speaking engagements:
