Every event is an opportunity for me to craft a unique presentation and make it as helpful and useful as possible for each audience.

We received some really positive feedback from the event participants – one person told us your talk was the best they had heard on the whole program which was fantastic to hear! As I’m sure you could tell from the active Q&A discussion, the audience was very engaged in the stories you told and was keen to learn from your experience driving innovation at HHS. I also think the way that you generalized your learnings made the content easy to translate from the gov/healthcare space to [other sectors], which worked particularly well for the audience.
