Storytelling & Social Media in Behavior Analysis | Diah Askari, MS, BCBA
We asked Diah a few questions about the event and our aim of bringing together behavior analysis, entrepreneurship, technology and clinical applications. Check out his answers and a clear description of his talk at NextGen Las Vegas! Oh and we have a video in there too at the bottom called Storytelling & Social Media in Behavior Analysis so you can get to know Diah.
Brief statement on why you’re excited to speak at this conference and/or how you feel you can inspire people to innovate their profession with technology.
NextGen conference presents the opportunity for our field to progress further into mainstream sciences and the public by highlighting topics and themes that push the boundaries of the applications of Behavior Analysis. Technology, in all forms, is the future and we would not only be doing a disservice to our field if we do not embrace its reach, but also to the world, because Behavior Analysis has so much to offer. It is time we all became a part of this movement.
What interests you, or fascinates you about technology?
The exponential growth. Technology continues to grow at unfathomable rates. Its time we embraced this reality and utilized its potential.
What interests you, or fascinates you about entrepreneurship?
Entrepreneurship is a vehicle for advancement. Innovation is driven by individuals who step outside the box to solve a problem and use this vehicle to deliver.
What are you most known for? We want to make sure novel attendees have as much time to prepare as possible to maximize their learning with you.

If you can give words of encouragement to attendees who wish to explore these areas, what would you say?
Do not be afraid to try something new. You will undoubtedly run into critics and those who doubt you, but “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”… So shoot.
