Michael Furdyk
I love the opportunity to share my story, discuss the latest technology and youth engagement trends, and explore the way that our work at TakingITGlobal can make a difference in getting more young people aware and engaged in global issues.

You can find out more about my presentations and book me for your event through my friends at the Lavin Agency. Looking for photos or my biography?
