Speaking

A passionate and experienced public speaker, I have delivered over 100 invited lectures and presentations in Canada, the United States, Europe, Asia, and Africa. My goal is always to translate research insights into practical recommendations, whether speaking with policymakers at international organizations, Parliamentarians at governmental committees, business leaders at industry conferences, among academic audiences at scholarly events, or to the general public through media appearances. Speaking is also an important part of my legal practice, for example discussing strategy with law firms and businesses, or appearing in cases before the Supreme Court of Canada.
