“We Spend our Time Monetizing Content for other brands for platforms we don’t own, I want to Change That”
Why Are Voice Skills Important Now?
1) Cataloging content prior to upload requires significant lead time (500-1000 unique questions);
2) Amazon Alexa is already enabled in cars/dishwashers/through mobile apps; and
3) Being an early adopter will increase discoverability and monetization before the space
inevitably gets more crowded later.
As a keynote speaker and creator of the Dr. Durgam Experience voice skill, I show large businesses and celebrities the techniques to brand themselves using voice skills on Amazon Alexa and Google Home devices. As with my own brand, I believe that creating an in-house branding team for your voice skill is the fastest and most efficient way to repurpose content. With clients including musicians, actors, politicians, doctors, and authors, I guide them to fully optimize their voice skill towards their individual goals.

Dr. Chithra Durgam
I've gotten to know Dr. Durgam well and she's been part of our events over the course of 2020. She's an excellent speaker and inspiring entrepreneur who is generous to others with both her time and her expertise. I recommend getting to know her and if there's intersection with events you're producing or are part of, get her involved.
- Bradley Metrock
Dr. Chithra Durgam is a rare soul--one of those speakers who puts in the work to tailor her message to the audience. She is willing to help and mentor however possible and is a great collaborator on projects outside of the lecture hall. Unfailingly creative, witty, thoughtful, and kind, Dr. Durgam is an example of why working with an introverted speaker can pay dividends above working with a spotlight seeker. Her following on social media is packed with "the rich and famous" and entrepreneur/mogul/author Gary Vaynerchuk even mentioned her in his book "Crushing It." Dr. Durgam is a wealth of knowledge on how to use social media to build a personal brand and offers practical advice for how the audience can start their own journeys. I can't recommend Dr. Durgam highly enough--as a speaker or a person.
