Speaking & Workshop Events

We love bringing the Make Time philosophy and our practical advice on making time for what matters to live audiences at conferences, company meetings, and community meetups (including online ones!).

This includes the core Make Time framework for individuals, how to apply these ideas in a team environment, our Design Sprint process for focusing on big challenges, and a variety of other topics.

We offer keynotes, workshops, and other custom engagements. Our events are practical and empowering—all about processes, frameworks, and tools that help you focus on the projects and people that matter most.

To learn more our private events for teams and organizations, check out Make Time at Work, or look below for upcoming events.

Here’s where we’ll be in the coming months:
