Invited Keynote Lectures, Artists Talk and/or Conferences & Masterclasses as Curator, Chair, Convenor or Presenter. Public speaker/storyteller for >100 global platforms across liberal & creative arts & humanities, psych- & social- sciences, including at Association of American Geographers Annual Conference in Chicago, University of Oxford and Museum of Sydney, & more, often in the mode of a scripted & cinematic performance-lecture. My Masterclasses knock & mock the “Master’s” (sic) dominant narratives, so that with participants, we learn tactics to co-create & celebrate cacophony of new, erased, forgotten, future-facing & other stories to collectively dismantle structures that have housed & supported these dangerous singular stories & other fake news. I have also presented at several of the Royals (Royal Geographical Society, Royal Society of Art, Royal Institute of Philosophy). For my advisory roles, click here. To return to my CV, click here

Trafigura is the world’s leading commodity trading house, and is part of Trafigura, which has a revenue of US$231 billion in 2021. Says a participant: ‘Thank you for […] generously sharing your knowledge and experience on the topic of neurodiversity.  I found it very informative and insightful. Particularly that we should not be too quick to label or judge, because there is wide variation in the type and severity of symptoms people of all ages, genders, races, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds experience. With this appreciation, we as a family, company, community or nation may be better able to harness this diversity as a strength, rather than a weakness’.
