Public Speaking Engagements

Liam is available for speaking engagements. To check his availability please send a message via the contact form on this website.

At first shy of the spotlight, a good friend sparked Liam’s career as a public speaker by quoting Spiderman. “With great power comes great responsibility.”

Liam realized he had the power of extensive life experiences, the power of authenticity, understanding, and compassion. Soon, he discovered he also had a talent for speaking publicly.
A talent for building bridges.

Liam has embraced the responsibility and has, since 2016, given presentations for many corporations and events. He has been invited as keynote and panel speaker around the globe.

In his presentations, Liam aims to give his audiences an authentic, personal glimpse into what it means to be transgender in our world today. He aims to dispel myths, labels, and stereotypes and aims to promote mutual respect, acceptance, diversity, equity, and inclusion.

To date, Liam has spoken in front of audiences of a few to several hundred participants. As well as to 1 million viewers when he was invited to the Swiss talk show Aeschbacher in 2018.
