Picture of Present book coverPoornima Vijayashanker and I wrote the book we wish we had earlier in our career: Present! A Techie’s Guide to Public Speaking

Our goal for writing this book is to see more people speak. We believe in making the tech world more inclusive, and part of that mission is to encourage women and underrepresented minorities to share their expertise. We want to bring life to more voices that might be silenced by fear and self-doubt or are simply left out of the conversation.

Present! is available as a softcover printed book, Kindle version, and Audible version.
