Whether you're addressing an intimate group or an audience of thousands, public speaking can be pretty nerve-racking. Sometimes your palms get sweaty, sometimes your voice cracks like the second coming of puberty - I've been there. Thankfully after struggling as the shy, introverted kid for years, I've finally got the hang of it. And ironically enough, my career now depends on my ability to be an effective speaker and communicator.
My biggest goal with this workshop is to guide you toward being a more poised, genuine speaker. I'll prepare you to develop and deliver content, share ideas and tell stories that create a space for audiences to relate, engage and act.

I'm a social entrepreneur and rhetoric coach operating between NYC and the San Francisco Bay Area. I spent 5 years working as an on-air radio personality and in project management before transitioning into a career focused on social change. As a speaker, I've engaged audiences of over 5,000 and have been invited to present, speak and host at events for CreativeMornings, The Harvard Graduate School of Education, New York Daily News and more.
Understanding the obstacles and anxiety we face when it comes to speaking in public settings, I launched Oratory Glory to help fellow makers, doers and intra/entrepreneurs communicate better and take (big and small) leaps toward championing and executing their ideas.
Since 2012, I've provided communications support to over 300 creative professionals through intimate workshops and have coached and led custom workshops at companies including Grind, Klout, and Spotify.
