Why Tan Le?

Audiences are getting tired of “middle aged white dudes”, and that is not Tan. Tan’s stories are amazing and she is a tech entrepreneur. I’ve seen Tan perform several times and still cry, laugh, and feel inspired every time. She tells her story of escaping Vietnam, completing school in Australia as the top student, and creating a headset that can capture brainwaves so that quadriplegics can move their wheelchairs. Tan then whips out the headset and shows the audience how it works, allowing some to come try it. Tan is a great lady with an amazing story which she is wonderful at telling. (She has a great Australian accent too!)

Le has been honored by the World Economic Forum as a Young Global Leader since 2009.  Le was named a National Geographic Emerging Explorer in 2013. She currently serves on the Board of Stewards on Shaping the Future of Information & Entertainment of the World Economic Forum and the Global Future Council on the Future of Neurotechnologies & Brain Science of the World Economic Forum.
