Giving talks that are more fun, require less preparation & leave your audience feeling awesome.
“Heather’s a black belt in engaging audiences in a meaningful and authentic way.” - Jerry Michalski
Comedian, keynote speaker and tummeling authority Heather Gold (Web 2.0, SXSW, Google) teaches her unique interactive performance approach to a limited number of participants in a day or half-day, slide-free, hands-on workshops. Heather is a 15 year veteran of the web and has spent over 10 years creating a web-influenced form of live performance that involves and threads the “audience” and creates quick engagement in the room.
You’ll learn the conversational “mechanics” that let you create quick intimacy and avoid boredom. Go from talking AT or TO a large group of people to talking WITH them. You already know how to have a great conversation with one person. Learn how to read the room and transform your presentations into conversations.
You’ll prepare and lead a conversation with personal guidance from Heather.
NO bullet points. NO slides. Just the greatness in you and the “audience.”
