Public Speaking

I remember the first time I watched an Apple keynote presentation. It was amazing! I made it my purpose to present all of my university projects just like an Apple keynote!

A few years ago I joined Toastmasters to improve my public speaking skills. In this page I want to share with you some of the presentations and speeches that I gave and I hope you enjoy them!

WWDC Vancouver Panel Discussion

After the 2018 WWDC event, Lighthouse Labs and ViDIA held a panel discussing the new announcements just made by Apple. I was honoured to be invited to be part of the panel! We had an amazing 1 hour conversation followed by a Q&A.

Design Without a Designer

I gave a quick 8 minute speech about how design thinking can be applied to even the smallest parts of your project called "Design without a Designer" at ViDIA's 2018 May meetup.

The Inevitable iPhone 8

I was honoured to be asked to speak at the 2018 February ViDIA meetup group to talk about an iPhone 8 concept design that I've been working on, for a 20 minute presentation.

Presentation on PaintCode (ViDIA)

In 2015 I decided to start using PaintCode instead of Photoshop for UI design. I know! What was I thinking? Photoshop? Anyway. I started to explore the possibilities of PaintCode and even made a fully working and customizable clock in it! I decided to share my knowledge and what is possible in PaintCode with the attendees on ViDIA during one of the meetings.

About Me - Ice Breaker Speech at Toast Masters

Every Toast Masters member's first speech is the Ice Breaker, where they talk about themselves, their background, what motivates them and where they want to go in life. This is my ice breaker speech. I hope you enjoy it.

Winning speech at table topics contest

Table Topics are one of the more challenging parts of being a Toast Master. You are asked a random question and have two minutes to give an answer in a proper public speaking format. My question (luckily) was about dealing with difficult customers. I had a lot of experience dealing with *cough* *cough* I mean all of the people I have worked with are very professional and never have I ever had any problems with anyone. Anyway, I managed to "make something up" and my speech won me the "Best Table Topics" badge.

Humorist Contest Speech

Remember I said the first ever speech you give at Toast Masters is the Ice Breaker? Well, that's unless you join a public speaking contest before your first ever speech at the club. Which is what I did. So technically this was my first ever speech at Toast Masters. I was told afterwards that my speech didn't follow any of the structure or guidelines that Toast Masters aims to teach, but it was very funny. You be the judge of that.

3 Minutes Humorist Speech

I really enjoyed joining the humorist contest, so I decided to follow that up a few months later with a 3 minutes humorist speech that is meant to kickstart the meeting on a positive note.
