After one too many failed presentations, Neil, an engineer, knew he had to improve. He did so, and now he works with technical professionals like himself to improve their communication skills. He hosts a podcast, the Teach the Geek podcast, interviewing technical professionals about their public speaking journeys. He is also author of the book, Teach the Geek to Speak: a No-Fluff Public Speaking Guide for STEM Professionals.
