While I try to make time for all of the speaker requests that I receive, I have decided that I will not be taking on any new speaking engagements for the months of November and December this year. This will allow me to enjoy the holiday season with my family and recharge for 2022. If you wish to schedule me as a speaker before or after those months, please email me. Thank you for understanding!
Interested in having me present to your group? Awesome! I've spoken to a number of different groups including in-house digital teams, college classes, PR chapters, agency teams, and professional clubs. Feel free to read the below information and shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if we're not already chatting. We'll get something on the calendar!
During my standard presentation, I will go over:
If there's something, in particular, you'd like me to discuss in my presentation, please let me know ahead of time. I'm always happy to make adjustments based on the needs of your team and how you use social media.
My standard presentation is a PowerPoint slideshow and usually about 30–35 minutes long. However, I do have a few variations of it, so if you need something shorter or longer, just ask. Most people book me for a full hour, leaving ample time for any questions or comments attendees may have after I'm done speaking.
Typically, no, but I can include some if you want the presentation to feel more like a training session. Let me know what you have in mind and we can discuss the feasibility and logistics of including it in the presentation.
I prefer that everyone hold their questions and comments until the end of the presentation only because sometimes an attendee will think of a question that will end up being answered in a later slide. Of course, if there's a chat function for the session, feel free to drop your questions in there and I'll answer any that weren't covered during the presentation.
Yes. After my presentation, I will email a link to download my full slide deck with speaker notes. I'll also send along a few other resources about accessible best practices for social media that I think will be helpful to you. It's up to you (or whoever my point of contact for the presentation is) to disperse to attendees as you see fit.
I'll need to be able to share my screen. I prefer to control my own slides, as I do have videos and animations that need to be manually triggered at specific points during the presentation. Zoom is my preferred platform, but most video conference services should work as long as I can share my screen and computer audio.
Absolutely! Feel free to record the presentation and share it with anyone who attended or planned on attending the session.
Let's chat. While I try pretty hard to not gatekeep the information I share—hence, why I have this website and offer a plethora of other resources at no cost—I also know that there's a lot of value in having me speak on accessibility and being available to answer questions face-to-face. We can discuss fair compensation privately.
Yes, but only if my expenses for travel and accommodations are covered.
I answer to both, but I prefer Alex. Plus, calling me Alex will help you avoid setting off your Amazon devices by accident.
HINE-RICK. It's very, very German.
My pronouns are she/her.
Yes! You can find my bio—a short and long version—below as well as a few headshots to choose from. Feel free to use whatever works best for your promotional needs.
