Who says introverts don't like to speak in public? 

It's important to me to keep bridging the gap between higher ed and the world we all actually live in. I do this with in-person and online slideshows, webinars, speeches, interviews, classes, training sessions, and any way I can think of to bring you "the deep stuff" I've had the privilege to study and write about.
