Speaking Engagements Inquiries
If you are interested in having Dean Kamen speak at an event, we ask that you please include some general information about your organization, event, as well as the potential date(s) you are looking for him to speak. Someone will contact you for further information if there is a possibility that we can accommodate your request.
We are delighted that so many creative and innovative people throughout the world are willing to contribute ideas for improving quality of life. We are further delighted and quite frankly flattered that so many people would like to share their ideas with us. However, DEKA does not accept ideas for inventions, nor do we develop products that are not based on DEKA technologies. Please do not send us your ideas.
Not usually. Please remember that DEKA is a research and development company, and that our projects are confidential, so the stuff on our desks and in our engineering labs is not for public viewing. We have to prepare well in advance for visitors and this would be rather disruptive for the people who work here (and would probably make them pretty grouchy, too).
Unfortunately you cannot contact Dean directly. His schedule makes it impossible for him to read or respond personally to all the correspondence he receives. If you have a question, please fill out the form in the General Info section and we will forward your message either to him or the appropriate person here at DEKA. Bear in mind that we can’t make any promises regarding confidentiality of e-mail messages or letters.
Does Dean ever do any public speaking? What if my organization wants to invite him to speak at an event?
While Dean does do some public speaking, his schedule makes it difficult for him to accept even a fraction of the invitations he receives. To inquire about Dean’s availability, please fill out the form in the Speaking Engagements section, include some information about your organization, and someone will contact you for further information if there is a possibility that Dean can accommodate your request.
I heard DEKA was working on some technology regarding _______________. Where can I get more information?
DEKA’s partners share information about DEKA-developed products when they are available for sale. Until then, most product details are confidential.
