“Be interested, be interesting” is an ongoing objective. The Pundificator would be happy to:

  1. Be a guest on your podcast
  2. Be a guest on your video
  3. Appear on your show
  4. Join your event
  5. Give a talk
  6. Facilitate a conversation or discussion
  7. Lead a conversation at your book club when you don’t have time for the book
  8. Facilitate a “Thinks & Nibbles” – an evening discussion devoted to a single topic
