Ethan Rotman, principle, brings his excitement and enthusiasm
to each workshop and coaching session, leading by example and always
showing the importance of preparation. Sessions are light, interactive
and focus on your needs – teaching you to be the best speaker and
presenter you can be. Ethan helps identify your strong suits, highlight
your personality and guides you to confidently use these in your
speaking. He works with you in a comfortable manner to help you
bridge the gap between your topic and your audience.
He began his career as a park ranger in 1980. He quickly learned that Park Rangers must engage their audience or people will simply walk away. In the business world, bored audiences tend to remain in their seats, but their minds wander. Ethan helps you become an engaging speaker that not only holds the interest of your audience, but sparks their imagination as well.
