Speaking

Included on NPR’s list of “Best Commencement Speeches, Ever”, named one of Newsweek’s “Women Shaping the 21st Century,” and recently selected for Albert Einstein Foundation’s upcoming book Genius: 100 Visions for the Future, Tiffany Shlain is an award-winning filmmaker, founder of the Webby Awards, and world-renowned dynamic speaker known for her visually stimulating, big picture, provocative, inspiring, engaging and powerful keynotes. With cinematic videos from her films playing in the background, Tiffany brings audiences on a ride that will make them think, laugh, connect, and think in new ways that most keynote settings don’t generally experience.  Her talks explore issues around technology, neuroscience, creativity, gender equality, the science of character and the importance of unplugging. She is currently experimenting with what she is calling “Spoken Cinema”, where she includes a live narration of one of her films and includes the audience members in the questions she is exploring in the film.

Tiffany has given over 100 keynotes at institutions including at Google, Harvard, NASA, The Aspen Institute, The Chicago Ideas Festival and was the closing speaker for TEDWomen and TEDMED. Tiffany was also the on-air Internet expert on ABC’s Good Morning America with Diane Sawyer, is a Henry Crown Fellow of The Aspen Institute, an advisor to The Institute for the Future, and was invited to advise then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about the Internet and technology. She was recently selected by the Albert Einstein Foundation to contribute to their new book Genius: 100 Visions for the Future. She currently serves on the Leadership Board of The Center on Media and Child Health at Harvard’s Boston Children’s Hospital.
