What people say

Here’s some feedback from my recent Freelance Heroes Day 2019 talk:

Topics I can cover

At the moment I’m looking to do talks that relate to my book: Anti-Sell. So topics such as:

  • Sales & networking (especially for people who don’t like sales)
  • Personal branding & self-promotion (without overdoing it)
  • Freelancing

I can also cover:

  • SEO
  • Self-publishing

Let me know if you’d like me to speak at your upcoming event!
