Ahmad AwaisAhmad Awais

πŸ‘‹ Well, hello there, I’m Ahmad Awais. Nice to meet you.

You’ll find my Press Kit on this page, including my bio, pictures, and links.

I love public speaking – so much so that I’ve spent most of the last five years on the road (avg 33 conferences/yr). Pre COVID of course. I can talk for hours and hours. I once gave a talk and conducted a workshop for six straight hours. No chairs were thrown. ;)

I am happy that you are interested in me speaking at your event. I have defined presenter terms; please read: So you want me to talk? I am a professional presenter with extensive experience in delivering 100+ talks. Therefore, I want to make sure that there is no misconception about what I expect and deliver as a speaker.


Feel free to use the following for your events:
