Keynote with Luvvie Ajayi
NTEN is thrilled to welcome Luvvie Ajayi as our 18NTC keynote. A dynamic and humorous speaker known for her straight talk, Ajayi brings a wealth of nonprofit tech and digital strategy experience.
Luvvie Ajayi is a New York Times best-selling author, speaker and digital strategist who thrives at the intersection of comedy, technology and activism.
A fifteen-year blogging veteran, she is the voice behind Awesomely Luvvie, a widely-respected humor blog that covers everything pop culture – from TV, movies and technology to travel, race and life’s random adventures. In addition to her blog, Luvvie communicates to her worldwide fans and followers through her Facebook Watch show and podcast, Rants and Randomness, as well as through her social media platforms.
It was her blog that inspired Luvvie’s debut book, I’M JUDGING YOU: The Do-Better Manual, which was released in September 2016, and instantly hit the New York Times best-seller’s list. It is a collection of essays that critiques our fame-obsessed, social media-centric lives, while encouraging us to do better. The book is the good, yet snarky, angel on your shoulder, in word form. I’M JUDGING YOU was recently re-released in hardcover with a bonus chapter and is currently being developed into a series for television.
