When I met Amy I had already delivered 200 keynote addresses on six continents, and I had been the recipient of positive teaching evaluations over thousands of university lectures, so I felt relatively well-versed in the art and science of speaking. Moments into our first conversation, however, I realized how much there was to learn, and how crucial the "little things" were in public speaking, and that Amy was exactly what I had needed all along. I gravitated to her helpful teaching style immediately, and I could not believe how much my presentation skills improved - and quickly! She took a pacing, rambling, academic talker and turned me into someone who was capable of delivering a captivating TED talk. I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to have met and worked closely with the very best.

With a substantial background in theater and teaching, speaking in front of a crowd has always come easily to me. Yet preparing to give a TED talk was unlike anything I had done before: instead of performing as a character, I was conveying my message as myself to a primarily virtual audience. Amy’s skill in helping me deliver my message in the most compelling way possible was invaluable. Amy Ayoub was truly a delight to work with and helped me create a provocative talk.
