Book Talk: Hood, Trailblazer of the Genomics Age

dagrostweet

Hood book talks are fun, team-building employee benefits for biotech and tech companies. I give an engaging 40-minute talk plus 20-minute Q&A, then sign copies of Hood: Trailblazer of the Genomics Age. Companies generally buy 50-60 books as gifts to employees, in addition to paying my speaking fee and expenses. E-mail me about a Hood book talk + signing.

Praise for My Talks:

“Luke’s talk and book signing at Xencor was extremely popular with our team. It was a fun event that brought out everybody from our finance team to our gene jockeys, all of whom were riveted by Luke’s storytelling about Hood and the characters around him. The line for signing was out the conference room door.” — Bassil Dahiyat, CEO, Xencor
