Speaking

“If you think you are good, try and get someone else to be as good as you!” – Achim Munene

No doubt it is not easy to get another as good as one is but it does bring a lot of joy and satisfaction to my soul when I am able to. I have spoken at quite a number of events ranging from university seminars/workshops to business meetings, women & youth events, tech conferences, and secondary schools.

I am experienced and available to speak on the following topics:

  • WordPress and Open Source Technologies
  • Corporate and Personal Blogging
  • Building Self-Hosted WordPress websites and applications
  • Self-Education and Technology in Africa
  • Digital Brand / Community Building & Management
