"You were *terrific* – and people kept bringing up your talk, your story, and your examples as super helpful."

– Torrey Podmajersky, Staff UX Writer at Google, author of the best seller Strategic Writing for UX

"You did an incredible job, and I think you should continue to speak at other events around the world. So many of our attendees said your talk was one of their favourites from the conference."
