Why Choose Me As
Your Presentation Coach?
20 Years of Passionate Tech Evangelism
With two decades as a technology evangelist, I’ve not just spoken about revolutionary ideas but have ignited passion on stages across global conferences, trade shows, and intimate customer meets. That’s 20 years of learning, refining, and mastering the art of public speaking.
Shaping Speaker Success Since 2008
Since 2008, I’ve committed to turning potential speakers into memorable storytellers. My influence extends beyond one-on-one coaching; it’s encapsulated in my guidebook The Founder’s Guide to Presenting and is showcased weekly on my live show, PitchZone. Together, these platforms have nurtured and guided countless presenters on their path to success.
Guiding Voices Across Industries
Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of guiding a diverse range of talents, from budding entrepreneurs ready to change the world, to fine-tuning the pitches of seasoned executives from household names like Dell, DXC Technology, IBM, Ricoh, and Sony. I’ve also collaborated closely with event organizers and accelerators to prepare their cohorts for their big day on stage or on screen.
Your Potential, Amplified
Every story is unique, and my role has always been to ensure that each one is told with clarity, conviction, and charisma. My mission is straightforward: Dive deep into the essence of your message and transform it into a presentation that resonates, captivates, and remains unforgettable. If you’re ready to reach the hearts and minds of your audience, I’m here to guide on that journey.
In our coaching sessions, we will work on every aspect of your presentation: structure, content, and how to deliver your message with authenticity and enthusiasm. We will find the right stories and anecdotes to create a narrative that will have an emotional impact and persuade your audience to take action.
