I’m looking forward to going on book tour for Code Girls; see the calendar below for a schedule of upcoming events. I also give talks on various related topics–women in the workplace, women in tech–at conferences, networking events, leadership seminars, universities, alumni groups, and corporate retreats. I’ve spoken about First Lady Michelle Obama internationally, including in Paris, Tokyo, and Copenhagen, and talked about the new generation of female breadwinners in the Sydney Opera House. If you’d like me to give a talk in your area, please contact my speaking agent, Tom Neilssen at email@example.com.
