I have been presenting at conferences for about 7 years, generally talking about software testing. I typically talk 3-4 times a year, at an array of different conferences, and at some local meetups. I was given the opportunity to give the closing Keynote at StarWest in 2018, and the video can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LH9OhBDpJXI&list=PLk81My95-GE8GjriXtiBIDbvQTUrp2rAB&index=31&t=0s
