About the Presenter

Zach Williams studied acting as an undergraduate, worked with various professional theaters and then spent several years in Los Angeles as a working actor. His skills come from three different professional experiences: an actor, a sales manager, and a finance professional.  Acting skills such as vocal projection, use of body language, and subtle emotional expression are all vital parts of effective presentations.

During the later years of his acting career, Zach worked as a sales manager.  In this role, he taught dozens of employees to use presentation skills to be successful in their careers. Eventually, Zach left his acting career behind to obtain his MBA from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University after which he worked in asset management.  He started his business, The Art of Presentation Consulting Company, on the premise that presentation consulting will only be effective if the consultant understands the subtleties and nuances of the client’s working environment.
