    Speech Topics

    Overcoming a Misunderstood Illness A Story of Hope, Resilience, and Modern Medicine
    In this talk, Jennifer Brea offers poignant insight into the experience of living with a debilitating (and mostly misunderstood) illness—and spotlights the grit, resilience, and bravery exhibited by the patients fighting for better treatment and higher visibility.

    Virtual Communities Using Technology to Form Profound Connections
    In this talk, Jennifer Brea explores the power of technology to generate meaningful virtual communities. At a time when fake news, cyberbullying, and the relentless social media comparison trap have some claiming that the internet is broken, Brea draws from her experience with the ME patient community to illustrate the internet’s more positive — and even life-saving — potential."

    I am very pleased that Jen is getting all of this recognition. I just hope that she does not do too much and make herself worse.

    I had assumed this was simply a commercial agency whose job is to recruit and supply speakers for events. Jen, as someone who has made a successful documentary film and well received TED talk, would be someone they would be happy to have on their books.
