More than ever before, your team needs to think about technology in a human-centric way. Our lives have changed from the covid-19 pandemic and they’re not going back to pre-pandemic “normal” any time soon — now what’s normal is a new level of virtual connectedness, and new expectations for frictionless experiences.
Whether pre-recorded, live, standing for the full keynote effect, or a seated fireside chat, Kate delivers the warmth people crave along with the expertise people need.
Offline Speaking Experience, Meet Online Expertise
You’d expect the author of Pixels and Place and Tech Humanist to offer not only virtual events, but an emphasis on connectivity, meaningful human experiences, and an optimistic view of the future. And that’s exactly what Kate does. Her signature events are virtual keynotes on Tech Humanism and her “optimistic futurist” view.
And they’re carefully crafted to make the most of the virtual metaphors and opportunities, to make each presentation itself a meaningful experience.
