Interesting, thank you and I see there are an unbelievable number of affiliated clubs near where I live.

A lot of companies (though probably not many startups) do offer presentation skills classes. They don't beat practice but worth checking out.

I definitely found the big room effect scary at first even if I should probably have felt less pressure than presenting to my CEO in a small room.

Yeah. My company has a modest education budget per employee and I've been told that improving my communication skills is a perfectly acceptable use of it - time to put it in action!

I find it uncomfortable. I'd probably hate acting classes. But, even as someone who does a lot of presenting, classes are really useful and I've benefited when I've pushed myself to take them. You'll probably find it more useful in the long run that something about the framework du jour which you can probably do equally well on-line.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
