Our host Louis Zezeran

Australian Louis Zezeran is known in Estonia as being a member of Stand Up group “Comedy Estonia” and also the face of the recent “Work in Estonia” campaign. In addition to this, Louis also has a first class honors degree in Computer Science from the University of Newcastle in Australia and spent the first 6 years of his professional life working as an IT consultant specializing in enterprise integration. Understanding instinctually that he was better at talking than at actually doing projects, he became an IT trainer in Europe and one of his first jobs was to instruct some of the team who built the original core of the Estonian “X-Tee” system. So if your prescriptions don’t make it from the doctor to the pharmacy on time, you can come and ask him why. Using his unique mix of technical and entertainment ability, Louis has advised many local startups on delivering better presentations through his work with Stoneful content agency.
