Knowledge is powerful. Some consider it a key to success and power and while that’s absolutely true, at Global Speakers Bureau we like to think of education as a tool for change. A tool that helps create a better society, improve the quality of life, and most importantly change our future. The human race has come a long way and made significant progress. From cavemen to space explorers - this sentence perfectly sums up the progress of humankind. A progress that would not be possible without our curiosity and desire to learn.

Linda Liukas: a programmer, storyteller, illustrator, education keynote speaker.
We can all agree that education plays a big part in the life of all humans. From the very early years, everything we learn has an impact on our future decisions: the paths we choose, the way we act, and how we communicate with others. That’s why it’s important to focus on the education of the youngest citizens, developing not only their knowledge but introducing them to new hobbies and allowing them to pursue their passions. Linda Liukas, our education keynote speaker, believes that encouraging children to be scientists, artists, and dreamers is an investment in the future of society. In her innovative children’s book “Hello Ruby”, Lydia introduces the world of technology to the youngest readers with beautiful, eye-catching illustrations.
What makes the book innovative and how do parents use it to teach their kids about computers and technology? You can learn more about this fascinating coding book for children in one of Linda’s engaging keynotes.
Education for all. Otto Orondaam and his impact on children's lives in poor countries.
Otto Orondaam’s journey is truly inspiring. He gave up being a doctor and a banker decided to look for a new purpose in his life. That’s the beginning of the project called Slum2School Africa, a volunteer-driven organization that provides education to underserved children in slums and hard-to-reach communities. In the 8 years of his charity work, 10 000 volunteers helped over 85 000 children from disadvantaged communities across Nigeria.
