Dan Abrams spent the last five years running a video production company specializing in corporate livestreams. He spends much of his time directing executives unaccustomed to appearing on camera or giving a presentation to large crowds.

This workshop is unlike any you’ve likely taken before. No one will tell you to “don’t say ‘um’” or “don’t turn your back to the audience.” The goal instead is to help you become comfortable in front of an awesome and keep you from getting lost in your head. Using techniques borrowed from acting and improv comedy, you’ll get on your feet and learn how to remain calm, comfortable and in command of the audience.
