Parry Aftab's Speaking and Events
Parry Aftab is a sought-after public speaker and MCs many events. She is equally at home with young students as she is with corporate executives and members of the US Senate. Known for her sense of humor and vast knowledge about digital technology uses, she covers a diverse range of topics. Parry can address the "Core Values" of the Internet for the Internet Society while sharing a panel with Tim Berners-Lee (the inventor of HTML, which allowed the Web to be created) and Homeland Security cyber-terrorism needs in the same week. She can get into the nitty-gritty with teens on issues of sexting and cyberbullying and on the floor with pre-schoolers helping them use their DS game devices. She may be talking about COPPA (the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998) on one panel and addressing protecting your corporate brand online in a webinar the night before.
She is a passionate speaker and receives high scores from those attending her events and presentations. Often driven to her events after knowing her only on the Today Show or Good Morning America, her audience members feel like they know the "real Parry" within the first hour. Parry is good in intimate groups, and even better before an audience of 2000. Her presentations are always customized for the event, audience and need and are both moving and dynamic. While feeling entertained and never bored, people come away form her presentations and events with a better understanding of the issues. They walk away better empowered to handle digital challenges and issues.

Unfortunately, Parry's schedule doesn't permit her to do as many speaking engagements as previously. But, you may luck out and be able to book her last minute (within a 2-month period), since she reserves time for her consulting and can sometimes do a quick event or a local event.
Parry Aftab loves hosting events for young people to empower them to change the world. Since 1998 she has hosted the Wired Kids Summit, where Teenangels and Tweenangels advise the industry, media and policymakers about cybertrends, safety, best practices and privacy issues.
