With broad appeal to business, healthcare, tech, and general audiences alike, Pogue brings expansive knowledge, engaging wit and an occasional song to center stage. Audiences leave as informed as they are entertained, with an enlightened perspective of the state of science and technology today and how it’s shaping everyone’s tomorrow.
