Obsessed with technology and innovation, Damir loves speaking to entrepreneurs, and companies, from Startup to Fortune 1000, about how innovation can drive their business into the future. Damir’s goal is to inspire others in their own startups and growing businesses. He is comfortable with large audiences, and two things separate him from other speakers:
He is a businessperson who happens to speak, rather than a “motivational speaker,” “professional speaker,” or a “guru.”
He customizes each speech for the audience. He needs one face-to-face or virtual meeting before the event to insure he does his best. A good speech requires knowing your business.
Damir has spoken for a diverse collection of organizations including the Worth Magazine investor conference, Oxford University, and the University of Berkeley. He has been interviewed on television and radio numerous times. He has also spoken on and moderated panels on entrepreneurship and venture capital.
