Meet your Coaches





Talan Tyminski

From speech impediment to presentation champ, Talan worked through her own shyness and anxiety to compete as a nationally ranked public speaker for eight years. She loved it enough to stick around and coach both competitively and professionally. She earned her Master's in political communication from Texas State University and works in Texas politics. Her passions include snuggling with her one-eyed pug and helping fellow boss babes nail their next presentations. 





Matt Whitman

A former debater, Austin native, and current Quiz Master, Matt knows how to own a presentation. He obtained his Master's in organizational communication from the University of Alabama, where he taught public speaking. Matt currently works in the Austin tech scene and wants to help your next pitch be perfect, even if you aren't into puns.
