Presenting Powerfully by Debbie Lundberg, a Nationwide consulting firm based in Tampa, FL, is thrilled to welcome Nichola Gutgold, Ph.D., to the Presenting Powerfully team!
With more than three decades of speaking, teaching, and coaching, Dr. Gutgold is author of more than ten books about speaking and rhetoric and knows that public speaking can change someone’s life, and therefore believes public speaking prowess can change the world. An international scholar and award-winning teacher, she has been featured on NPR, in The New York Times, US News and World Reports, the LA Times, and other national and international media.
“Throughout my career I have seen incredible transformations through effective speaking,” says Dr. Gutgold, and I am highly motivated to coach others in their aim to speak with passion, charisma, and veracity. “I believe public speaking must be fun, and that everyone can be an effective speaker,” she added. “It’s exciting to join Presenting Powerfully as a public speaking coach because Debbie shares my fervent belief in the empowerment that grows out of presenting ideas and self well. The ancient Greek perspective is as true today as it was when Aristotle said, “We learn by doing, we become builders by building…brave by doing brave acts.” Everyone learns public speaking and becomes effective not by reading about it, but by stepping up and doing it, which is the reason an interactive approach to public speaking coaching is applicable for desired outcomes.”
Debbie Lundberg, Founder & CEO of Presenting Powerfully, shared “Having Nichola join the team is not only a natural fit, it is a level of professionalism that clients have grown to expect and enjoy when engaging in presentation skills coaching over the past 16+ years. Public speaking is more than a speech, it is a confidence, a preparedness, and an appreciation for the opportunity to be heard. Nichola guides students as a professor and coaches select individuals in Pennsylvania at Penn State University Lehigh Valley, and now, it is wonderful to have her available in Florida, and beyond for one-on-one coaching and group coaching as it relates to enhancing public speaking. It could not be a better time to increase Presenting Powerfully’s capacity through opportunities for current clients and future clients through Nichola’s availability!”
In addition to Nichola’s spirited public speaking coaching, Dr. Gutgold enjoys ballet fitness, swimming, being a wife to Geoff and a mother to two adult children, Ian, and Emi, as well as her beloved cat, Sappho.
