Azure Antoinette    

CEO, Commissioned Poet & Author, Millennial Advocate

Azure Antoinette is a poet, spoken word artist and millennial and arts education advocate whose performance poetry explores the ways social media is reshaping humanity.

Commissioned Poems

Azure Antoinette will present a five- to seven-minute poem to open or close (or both) your conference. She takes a word, a thought, a picture, an emotion, and client feedback to customize a poem that she then presents in spoken word. It's a powerful, unique way to kick off or wrap up the event – with a poem your audience will never forget.

Humanity's Changing Face: Coping with the Human Condition Gone Viral

When was the last time you sent someone a note that you hand wrote, addressed, and mailed? How about the last time you personally received a letter from a close friend? These days, everything is electronic. There is no problem with the efficiency of electronic communication, which has made life simpler, faster, and more efficient. However, there is an underlying question: Has the human condition gone viral? This keynote is a conversation topic and a moment to remind ourselves about the basics, like holding hands or remembering to embrace face-to-face communication. Azure Antoinette opens and ends this 45-minute session with her acclaimed poem "Humanity."
