Ignite Your Spark

Technology impacts each of our lives every single day. The world is changing, yet it’s hard to keep up with all the new developments and what we should expect in the future. As one of the most in-demand consumer technology experts, Katie Linendoll brings her passionate spark for tech to the stage. She enthusiastically shares her signature tech stories from major media outlets in a manner that is innovative, informative, and inspiring. Through a customized audio and video presentation, fully developed by her production company, she shares a behind-the-scenes look at how she chases her mission, or as she calls it her “spark,” which is finding game-changing technological innovations to share with the public. She takes the audience along on her journey and then invites them to reflect on their own spark—a passionate mission that they can ignite within their own life.

Inspired by that technological spark for knowledge, Katie’s inquisitive personality has taken her around the globe. She’s interviewed top CEOs, astronauts, deep-sea divers, and other game-changers in the technologic industry, witnessing firsthand how unique innovations can change the world. From robotic lifeguards to heads up displays that enable the blind to see, each day holds amazing discoveries and advancements.

With access to audiences in the millions, Katie feels a huge responsibility to share stories on her platforms that both educate and inspire others. Her vision and ability to search out the best stories has enabled her to trend for days on top network sites and has put groundbreaking technologies on the map (even crashing a few websites due to heavy traffic by interested viewers).

In this intimate talk, Katie provides a candid look behind the curtain of her media journey from ESPN to The Home Shopping Network to the TODAY Show, weaving real-life stories, ups and downs, successes, and failures.

With a long career in television, Katie knows how to entertain and capture her audience. She spends time properly researching and fully immersing herself onsite with each client. She also takes pride in the fact that she is regularly rehired by top organizations for their global events. In a unique and high energy style all her own, she aims to expand the horizons of those in attendance with a presentation that is fun, fast-paced, and memorable—leaving people motivated, inspired, and ready to ignite their own spark.

TAKEAWAYS:
1. Identify your spark
2. Step out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself
3. Make new connections and maximize opportunities (as an introvert herself - she gets it!)
4. Persevere and handle failure with blinders on
5. Stay on trend and embrace new technology

Katie also enjoys a post-Q+A and, depending on the venue, a post-talk integrated tech giveaway.
