I frequently present at major educational events around
the world. A selective list includes:

  • Dozens of presentations for the Association of MBAs—to business school deans and directors as well as to applicants—from London to Budapest.

  • Addressing American law school admissions directors at the annual LSAC (Law School Admissions Council) conference and pre-law advisors at regional and national conferences.

  • Presentations at Fulbright Centers across Europe regarding global MBA admissions, elite American university admissions, LLM admissions, and other topics.

  • Addressing graduate students, post-docs, and junior professors at universities ranging from CUNY to the University of Utah regarding how best to get out of academia.

  • Presentations to students at America’s leading universities, including Harvard, Yale, Brown, Columbia, Penn, NYU, Texas, UCLA, USC, Berkeley, and Stanford, regarding business school, law school, and other graduate school admissions.

  • Addressing the National Association of Fellowship Advisors (NAFA) regarding lesser-known fellowship opportunities, assessing post-college opportunities, and the impact of fellowships on professional school admissions.

I also present to parent groups, college student associations, and other less-formal organizations.


My presentations are characterized by a high energy, interactive approach. I am routinely graded as the top presenter at major events.
