“I worked with Nathan during Startup Weekend Bahrain and he’s hands down the best emcee and the finest Startup Weekend facilitator I’ve ever seen. His ability to energize and engage the audience is unparalleled, and it helped create an electric and dynamic atmosphere throughout the event.
Nathan maintained a high level of engagement over the entire weekend, and supported all the early-stage startups as well as the organizing team. We are eagerly looking forward to having him back next year!“
“I wanted to express my gratitude for having Nathan as the facilitator for Startup Weekend Columbus. His energy and enthusiasm were contagious, creating an engaging atmosphere throughout the event. The pitching workshop he conducted was incredibly valuable to the candidates, and Nathan’s collaboration with our organizing team was seamless. It was a pleasure working with him.”
“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!“
