Hi Folks, my name is Tom Burke.
Since 2008, I've served as a communication advisor to leaders at Google, TED speakers, authors, students at Columbia Business School and more.
My work is currently featured on Bravo TV's new social experiment, "In A Man's World," which focuses on diversity, equity and inclusion.
I use tools pulled from my work with Hollywood actors and Broadway singers to help busy tech execs like you, learn to embody powerful, authentic storytelling skills.
With programs designed to accommodate even the busiest of schedules, my goal is to help you be clear, concise and compelling quickly, under stress with even the most difficult of stakeholders. 

""Tom Burke and I have been working together for close to two years now. He has made my public presentation skills much, much better. In everything from body posture and hand movement to inflection and tone, he has detailed, subtle and amazing insight on how I can be better. More than everything else, Tom has taught me to really "feel" what I say in a way that makes my presentations genuine, exciting and appealing. (That he can do this with someone who would rather write software or poetry than speak to 5000 people is a further testament to his skill and ability.) Thank you, Tom!" "

Sridhar Ramaswamy
Venture Capitalist, former Senior Vice President of Ads & Commerce, Google

"Tom is an experienced advisor who helped us think about how we express the history and future of Boxed. He helped us pull together our thoughts into a coherent message."

Chieh Huang

"At the core of Tom's work is his ability to tease out the true stories of one's work and tie them together powerfully and meaningfully into one cohesive narrative"

Abigail Posner
Director of Strategy, Effectiveness, Content and Production
at the Brand Unit, Google

How will you know if the Academy is worth your investment?
Choosing the right coach is really about resonance.
To truly help you craft your world class talk, we will have to have some very direct, challenging, vulnerable yet supportive conversations.
