Speaker + Media

Ming Johanson

Speaker | Media Commentator

Technology | Mental Health | Social Media


I have spoken at the Australian Social Media Marketing Summit, developer conferences around Australia and events ranging from Tech conferences/panels, and sharing my own personal journey through mental health as an ambassador for R U OK Day.

I often speak around mental health and technology, covering topics such as unconscious bias, scaling your business with PTSD, as well as the future of social media and the ethics of the internet.

I have a collection of keynote presentations however I am happy to create something specific for your audience.

What is the audience take away from me?

They will walk away empowered, taken on an emotive personal journey that creates a connection with learning the value and power behind emotional intelligence, empathy and leadership in a world with rapidly changing technology.

Why should you book me to speak?

Whether it’s a keynote address or as the MC for your event, I bring these key things to every speaking job: focus on key outcomes for your event (discussions before the event around your audience/attendees), taking the audience on an interactive journey (entertaining & emotionally compelling).
