Inspiring Content for the Eternally Inquisitive: GigaOM's Director of Events ensures you get the inside scoop on tech industry happenings

Biography

As a conference producer for technology events focusing on leading edge innovation, my job is to search for challenges, highlight emerging companies and disruptive technologies to watch, think radically about new solutions and products, find new opportunities for entrepreneurs and VCs and bring these to light at GigaOM conferences.

As a resourceful, inquisitive, outspoken and creative person who has a passion for learning and spreading knowledge – my experience includes research, project management, marketing events globally, brand creation and positioning, managing cross-functional collaborative teams and spearheading new initiatives.

I am keen to understand learning styles and innovative ways in which to deliver content at conferences, in order to improve engagement and inspire attendees long after an event has passed.

Undaunted by the task of challenging top level executives, entrepreneurs and experts in their thinking has not only enabled me to develop content to help attendees to challenge the status-quo, think radically and look at problems from a different angle, but has also enabled the discovery of new ideas and thinkers that are ahead of their time.
