Jonathan Talbott is a communications advisor with a specialty in spoken communication and a background in the performing arts.
“I started out in business with a plan to help presenters eliminate Death by PowerPoint, but it’s gotten a little out of hand. The presenting work led to coaching TEDx talks. I’ve now assisted in the creation of more than 200 of those. Before I knew it I was helping people and organizations with giving pitches, preparing for panel discussions, focusing their small talk at events, planning negotiation communication and practicing interviews. I spend a fair amount of time talking about goals, strategy and planning, particularly with regard to emotional connection with audiences. I also work with lots of startups on market validation, which really means asking good questions and carefully listening to the answers.”
Talbott is a regular guest lecturer on communications skills at the Delft University of Technology, Utrecht University and Erasmus University.
