Lynne d Johnson



I've been doing a terrible job with keeping up-to-date with my speaking activities here. I usually post stuff from my talks on my blog. If there's a YouTube video, I usually add the talk to a video playlist there, and if it was a presentation and not a panel, I do my best at promptly uploading my decks to SlideShare.

Most recently I've been speaking a lot about augmented reality and its implications for marketing, the need for more women in tech, and digital storytelling for brands with an emphasis on content marketing and social media.
