About Us

The idea:

How many times have you said “I wish I knew more about …” Could be Crypto, Green Tech, eSports, AI, Wellness – just to name a few. Well, we are curious too. We ALSO want to know more!

Hence, the birth of Alternatively Speaking.

First up – we will dive into the topic of Longevity. What is it exactly? Who are the people moving the industry forward? What is the latest science telling us? What do the markets think? Who is investing in it?  We will aim to answer all of those questions – and even more that we haven’t even thought of yet!

Meet the Hosts!

He has developed proactive investor relations and communications strategies for several multi-national, micro and small cap companies in various sectors including technology, healthcare, clean tech, financial services and natural resources.

He has secured speaking engagements at premiere conferences and has organized several cannabis industry panels which have included himself as well as his clients.
