Adrienne has given many virtual presentations during the pandemic and would be happy to continue doing so.

 

She travels extensively (when there isn’t a pandemic on), so would be happy to give an in-person talk or meet at a restaurant, pub, or museum to hang out.

 

In 2023, Adrienne gave a talk for the Sydney Skeptics, spoke at the Western Canadian Reason Conference in Calgary, Alberta, and presented at the CSICon Sunday Papers in Las Vegas, Nevada.

2024 Monterey Skepticamp

On January 6, 2024, I had the honour of speaking at the Monerey Bay Skepticamp for two hours. One hour was spent talking about Sallie Winchester and the not so Mystery House. The second hour was a workshop on Tourette Syndrome and OCD. 

On January 7, 2024 a large group of attendees went on two tours at the Winchester Mystery House

Presenting my skeptical journey at my first conference on May 6, 2023, was a fantastic experience. I had the privilege of joining an international group of esteemed speakers, including Aron Ra, Seth Andrews, and my friend from Australia, Richard Saunders.

 

It was a very busy time for me, as I was also serving as the co-chair of the conference. Fortunately, an outstanding committee worked tirelessly to bring the magic to life. I congratulate them all for making it a fun event.

My favourite quote from the weekend is from Kat Mac, who I feel summed up the weekend perfectly: "It was one of the best weekends of my life, just an incredible time...Three years of lockdown made me feel dead inside, but I am among the living again AND I got hugs!"

 

We learned many valuable lessons, but as Kenny Biddle wisely advises, "Never Stop Learning." This means that the next conference will be even better.
