Elizabeth Darby is an experienced speaker, panel moderator, panelist, and conference keynote speaker.
As a journalist and editor, she frequently moderated panels on sustainability, wilderness, local and international environmental policy, and women journalist issues. As a speaker, she has delivered insight, intelligent content, connecting points, and humor to groups throughout the world, whether Soviet-era scientists; women in journalism, nationally, regionally, and locally; or eco-policy conferences.
Darby also offers workshops and conversational speeches on her book Here You Begin (see her blog on the topic), and speeches on her recent works, including Earth:Sacred/Possession and creating a Culture of Care. She also speaks on what's new in the issues of environment and nature which she covers in her journalism career, from the return of the wolf to African wilderness, to the environment as security.
She is a heart-felt, genuine story-teller, weaving behind-the-scenes intelligence with gentle humor based on her 25-years as an international journalist covering international politics and the environment, from Africa to Alaska, Russia to the Wild West. Whether speaking on the writing process or international policy, her speeches offer wit, adventure, and heart-touching lessons which will entertain and connect your conferees to the issues at hand.
She is also available to provide be-spoke speeches able to connect the topic of your conference or gathering with her in-the-field experience and new research and years of experience as an Editor, Writer, Journalist and Workshop Leader.
