- Jerry Michalski


"One of our favorite comedians"



"Highly recommended"

- Scott Rosenberg, co-founder Salon, author Say Everything


- Beth Kanter, author The Networked Non-Profit

"(Un)Presenting was exactly what hot studio was looking for: practical guidance for getting and staying connected in the moment while speaking to a large group. Heather made it equally instructional and fun. A great team building experience! We've incorporated her approach into our work with partners and clients every day."

- Sarah Brooks, Director Social Innovation, Hot Studio

Web veteran, keynote speaker and comedian Heather Gold (NPR, SXSWi, Apple) is offering her highly successful UnPresenting workshop. 

UnPresenting teaches Heather's unique interactive performance approach to a limited number of participants in a half-day, highly experiental workshop. Why talk about the Internet in a way that's less interactive than the medium you're discussing? Gain a deep experiential understanding of your strengths, emotion and story in a networked environment. 

You'll learn the emotional mechanics that let you connect with your best storytelling and create quick intimacy. Go from talking 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 learn how to lead the room with personal guidance from Heather. NO bullet points. NO slides. Just the greatness in you and the "audience."

Who should come

•founders, CEOs and people who speak often

Anyone who gives presentations or runs meetings and wants to energize and engage everyone in the room

•Anyone inhibited by fears, memory issues or introversion when speaking publicly

Anyone who wants to understand the dynamics of networked conversation
•Anyone who wants to learn how to be themselves in public be as powerful as they can be in front of the room.


Tickets are transferrable and non-refundable.

If your company is paying or reimbursing you then you'll need a company ticket. This may be the last UnPresenting with tiered pricing for independents.

I am a big believer in the power of personal attention. That's why I'm being clear when it's limited. At UnPresenting mine is undivided and focussed on you and everyone in the room. 

Presenting superpowers and fun are provided. Lunch is not.

Ask me a question or request an individual consultation or workshop in your city.
