Speaking publicly about our collective adventures in technology, leadership, connectedness, social change and emotional well-being is my bag. I’m available for keynotes, emceeing, workshops panels, class appearances, and more. I’ve spoken at a number of conferences, including TEDxBerlin, SXSW Interactive, Tribeca Film Festival, re:publica, Personal Democracy Forum, Ignite (NYC), Netroots Nation, the National Conference on Media Reform, Facing Race, Web 2.0 Expo, Bioneers, and Women Action & The Media. I’ve guest lectured and spoken at colleges and universities including Columbia University, NYU, Rutgers University, Claremont McKenna College, and more.
In this talk, Deanna Zandt will connect the dots between amorphous global movements – #aufschrei, Planned Parenthood Saved Me, Trayvon Martin, Bell Bajao/Ring the Bell, and more – and reveal the intoxicating combination of power and emotional resonance that make revolutions happen.
