quote

The presentations surpassed my expectations and I liked how Jocelyn linked and understanding of the brain, an individualised, more complex overview of how young people use technology and ideas for how young people can make good decisions about their technology use and parents can also support and model these.

Keynotes

Panellist

MC/host

Over the last ten years I have regularly presented at schools, conferences, corporate professional development and to mental health and wellbeing events, summits and seminars.

My speaking highlights include the 2019 and 2022 EduTechAU conference, Australia’s largest educational conference, and the renowned Happiness and Its Causes conference where 3000 people were in the audience (I also MC’ed this event in 2022 and 2023).

As well as various TV appearances, I have been selected twice for the esteemed Q&A panel on ABC TV (in June 2019 and October 2020) – it was terrifying and exhilarating both times.

My communication skills are enlisted by brands for expert commentary and media spokesperson roles. I have represented Old El Paso, HCF, SocietyOne, McAfee, Lenovo, and Microsoft.
