Looking for a Speaker?

Hi, I’m Sam, and I’m passionate about giant pumpkins.

I enjoy talking about some of the crazy things giant pumpkins have led me to, including:

  • How to know your flatmate is great (hint it has something to do with the pumpkin I am wearing)
  • The logistics of turning a giant pumpkin into a boat, and getting on the 6 o’clock news.

My underlying message is to follow and do what interests you, no matter what it is.

This belief led me to organise hundreds of people sending gifts to random people when I created NZ Twitter Secret Santa. Which led me to giving a TEDx talk about it.

I bring a unique, interesting collection of stories that will make people think and talk.

Ideal if you ‘re after something lighter between heavier topics.

I’m currently based in the Waikato. If you’d like to discuss this further, please get in touch.
