I became a keynote speaker, therefore I want to give you a little history of my conference speaking.


I used to live in Silicon Valley (2000-2008) and India (2008-2010) before going back to Brazil  in 2010. I have been speaking at conferences since 2000. Here are two old talks I’ve registered as a blog post:



I haven’t tracked all the talks and events I went to, but from 2000 to 2009, the average was around 2 conference speaking per year.


In 2010 I moved back to Brazil, where I stayed until 2019. In Brazil (and neighbouring countries), I spoke even at more events and conferences. The speaking average did increase. Every month I was speaking at least on a different event. Besides doing more talks at events and conferences, I also increased the amount of  blogging and writing I do (this explains all the books I authored).


But lately, I have been invited as a keynote speaker. Please find below the list of my keynote speaking:


But why did I write this post?
For two reasons: (1) to keep track of these past keynote appearances, and (2) to let you now I am available to keynote at your event. From 2010 to 2019, I was “hiding” in Brazil (I was avoiding international travels to stay close to the family). But since 2019 I move to Europe and started responding to speaking requests from all over the globe.
