Brooking Gatewood

Writing an adequate review of David's work is a near impossible task, even for a poet. From moment one of my Ted talk prep with him, I felt completely supported and 'gotten', and his feedback on my drafts was incisive, honest, generous, and in service of taking my speaking capacities to the next level. He helped me trust my offering while also pushing me to be smarter and better in how I delivered it. I am forever a better speaker from just a few hours with him. He is a true gem, and will help you shine way brighter as well!
