My name is Tom Hughes-Croucher. I work for Yahoo! and I speak a lot about a range of technical topics. I’m happy to speak at your conference/work place/wedding, just drop me a line firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to call me +1 415 994 1253 (I’m mostly on Pacific Time i.e. GMT-8).
I don’t usually charge for speaking, however I do appreciate travel and accommodation expenses whenever possible, it gives me the chance to bring the most value to more people.
