Conference writing

I am an experienced and professional conference journalist, providing quality coverage that delivers value in excess of the sponsorship to host me. I take my work seriously, both to your organisation and to my readers, CIOs and other business and technology leaders.

Please contact me if you would like me to cover your conference. I can also perform public speaking, panel hosting and other services.

Here is some recent coverage, plus testimonials.
