ABOUT

The DLC

2021

Cybertips is an initiative provided by the Economic Development Department, within the Government of Bermuda, which visits schools and supports youth organizations, community events and local businesses. 

 

We are excited to be planning our 4th Annual Digital Leadership Conference.  Each year the Cybertips Digital Leadership Conference has brought young Bermudian’s together for a day of leadership building, digital awareness and learning about social justice.

This year we are pivoting to a virtual event and have selected speakers that will engage, educate and motivate our student audience, even from miles away! 

The goal of the DLC remains to help provide Bermudian students and young people with the necessary knowledge and skills to use technology safely.

The 2021 Digital Leadership Conference is looking to our best one yet! Register today!

INTERNET SAFETY SPEAKER

While my background is working with law enforcement, my perspective on the internet as a keynote speaker is usually surprising: I believe that the Internet is an amazing tool that enriches lives—when it's used properly.

For the past decade, I've been a keynote speaker at schools, law enforcement agencies, large corporations, community organizations, and major national conferences throughout North America.

 

I see it as my job to make a scary thing less intimidating by equipping my audiences—young and old—with useful information that brings awareness to our relationship with technology.

A member of the Bermuda Police Service for 13 years. I am passionate about protecting and serving my country and it's people. 

A staunch advocate for safe and appropriate technology use, I have volunteered with the Cybertips Programme for the last three years.  My goal is to educate Bermuda's residents on the not only the potential dangers of using the internet and technologies inappropriately but all the ensuring they know the law and punishments related to online offenses. 

There is a growing body of knowledge that can help us understand the decision-making process, and in turn, learn to make better decisions.

I've been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. Growing up in Canada, I spent hours at art galleries and art classes where she developed an immense appreciation for art history, different cultures and beautiful landscapes.
 

With my entrepreneurial spirit, I was instrumental in the launch and popularity of a paint and sip event company in San Francisco. In 2017, I set out to launch MIX Studio in Bermuda and create a space for art enthusiasts on the island. 

Pivoting with the rest of the world, my art is now a vitual experience.
