Do you want to captivate your audience?
It’s your big day. You have prepared well. And you are ready to make a difference.
But at the moment before all eyes turn to you, you start noticing the butterflies in your stomach. You have that feeling of being vulnerable. Perhaps you even imagine the worst possible outcome of making a mistake. And that nagging voice inside your head robs you of your confidence.
You are not alone.
Most people suffer from some form of presentation anxiety. In fact, the fear of public speaking ranks very high amongst all the fears we possess. The reason is simple: so many people have never really learned how to present in front of an audience.
My name is Nathan Gold and I made it my life’s work to help you become a more confident, memorable, and accomplished presenter.
I have prepared thousands of professionals for high stakes presentations. You know, those moments that can make or break a deal. My clients include entrepreneurs pitching their ideas to raise capital, TED presenters with ideas that matter, and executives who depend on a successful delivery of their message.
Wall Street Journal named me an Elevator Pitch Expert after I coached the Top 5 Finalists in the Startup of the Year award. I am an Industry Fellow at UC Berkeley and a guest lecturer at Wharton Entrepreneurship. And dozens of accelerators and incubators around the world have chosen me as their exclusive pitch coach.
In How To Captivate Any Audience I’m going to share with you proven techniques that not only will make you a more confident presenter, but a presenter that will stand out from the crowd.
Don’t take my word for it. Read how some of my past clients describe my work with them:
What are people saying?
“Inspiring. Simple. Easy to implement.”
“Where were you 25 years ago when I started presenting.”
“Thank you for one of the most practical classes on presenting I have ever seen!”
Don’t leave your success to chance!
In a world of accelerating technological change, the most important skill is the ability to communicate your ideas. This is the skill you are going to develop in this course.
