If you want to become a better speaker, a better workshop leader, or better presenter, Derek can help you. He's been teaching and speaking for 27 years. He's a world-renowned conference speaker and author in the web accessibility and inclusive design field. He's established a reputation for creative, hands-on workshops that help people not only learn new information, but also build new skills.

Current workshops

Teach, don't speak: the workshop

The equivalent of a full-day workshop, split into 4 parts, and delivered online. This workshop shares the framework that Derek uses to plan every conference talk, every workshop, and every professional development session he delivers. The workshop is hands-on. You'll be expected to work to build your skills by practicing them live with other participants and sharing them with each other. You'll also get 1:1 time with Derek in his private slack to discuss things. And stuff.

The March/April 2020 Teach don't speak workshop is closed for registration. Join my mailing list below to get notified of the next live workshop.

  1. Within 2 hours of your confirming you want to be on the list, I'll send you a draft outline of what the course includes, and ask for your feedback on it, and what topics you might want to learn about.
  2. For the next 4 or 5 days, I'll send you some new content every day or so, that almost serves as a "preview" of the content for the course. I'll also likely ask you some more questions.
