Eloquent Speaker

Ahmad AwaisAhmad Awais

πŸ‘‹ Hi, I am Ahmad Awais!

I love public speaking – so much so that I’ve spent most of the last five years on the road (with an average of 33 conferences/meetups/seminars a year). I am able to talk for hours and hours. I once gave a talk and conducted a workshop for six straight hours. No chairs were thrown. ;)

This page lists a non-exhaustive list of my talks and all other speaking engagements. For organizers, I also maintain a speaker-bio and speaker-terms page. Check it out or feel free to get in touch.

⚠️ Work in progress. I’m publishing it to “Write in Public” i.e. publish before you edit. This helps me fight imposter syndrome. It’s my personal site after all.
