    PROGRAMS

    As an innovative technology entrepreneur, Tan Le could talk endlessly about topics related to her company, Emotiv, and the wireless, wearable brainwave-reading headset it markets. Le is a captivating speaker who shares compelling insights on why such a technology has the potential for incredible, transformative impacts on humankind, and her visions for its applications. She offers programs such as “A Headset that Reads Your Brainwaves,” “The Future is Closer than You Think,” and “You Think, Therefore You Can Read.”

    In addition, Le has an extraordinary story of her own. In “My Immigration Story,” she shares her life’s journey, from escaping war-torn Vietnam at age four, beginning life anew as a refugee in Australia, working hard to enter college at 16, to where she is now. Though extremely accomplished in the face of adversity, Le speaks humbly about her life and her achievements, leaving any audience inspired.

    My Immigration Story

    In this captivating and inspirational keynote, Tan Le recalls her early childhood fleeing war torn Vietnam – boarding a tugboat in search of a new life, four-year-old Tan Le’s mother was clutching one precious possession: a vial of poison. In the highly possible circumstance of a pirate boarding the vessel, she would feed it to her two daughters and her mother, before taking it herself. Against all odds, Tan Le and her family washed ashore Australia’s coast to begin a new life in a foreign country. She worked hard, and it became clear from an early age that she had immense potential. At just 16, after intense studying, she was accepted to college. Just a couple of years later she was named ‘Young Australian Of The Year.’ Le goes on to humbly discuss her accomplishments, and how she became a spokesperson, activist, and eventually moves to the US to become CEO of Emotiv- a leading neuroscience technology company that helps individuals all over the world with groundbreaking innovations.

    The Future is Closer Than You Think: A Headset that Reads Your Brainwaves

    Tan Le’s astonishing new computer interface reads its user’s brainwaves, making it possible to control virtual objects, and even physical electronics, with mere thoughts (and a little concentration). She demos the headset, and talks about its far-reaching applications.
