“At Columbus Startup Weekend, Nathan was an Amazzingg Facilitator. He was present, engaging, helpful, and insightful during the entire weekend, and truly cared about the quality of the event. Being able to pivot in real time, and take feedback can be hard to do, but Nathan handled all changes thrown at him in a professional and thoughtful manner

Nathan was a great facilitator at our Columbus Startup Weekend. This was our first event back post-COVID, so to have Nathan’s experience and insight for the weekend and knowing his role was a great help. He brought energy, comedy, and insight to the Facilitator role, and the whole weekend! SWCbus recommends Nathan!
