Public speaker - Taivo Pungas

Invite me to talk at your event.

For 10+ years I've been speaking at events in Estonia and Europe, usually at technical or technology-related events. I seem to do around 10 talks per year, depending on how busy I am.

My typical topics are in the areas of:

  • my work in building AI and automating human activity at Veriff and Starship and elsewhere;
  • the stories of my startups;
  • the future, present, and past of AI;
  • building technology teams and products.

I've also given talks on non-tech topics like productivity, effective altruism, minimalism, and much more.

Recently (2023-ish) I spend more time talking in less formal environments like private meetups and other small groups.

If you'd like to invite me to speak, please shoot me an email at taivo@pungas.ee.
