Donald Sadoway is a Key Opinion Leader in his field of science and its impact on society. He has been called a visionary for his ability to think about big world problems for which there are electrochemical solutions and state them in a way that is broadly accessible.
Don’s keynote talks on energy have been well received all over the world to a wide range of audiences. His performance is always a big hit because of the way he engages the listener with straight talk about the issues, offers clear explanations of the relevant science, and tenders a message of hope—not simply a criticism of what is wrong in the world but a vision of a path forward – all of this peppered with humor. He teaches us to think about the problem differently, to have the courage to fly in the face of conventional wisdom, and to inspire others to join in the invention of cost-effective solutions. During his presentations he has a wonderful way of weaving in references to music, art, and literature in a beautifully crafted talk—Sadoway informs as well as entertains.
