Biography

Nathan Gold, also known as The Demo Coach resides in the San Francisco Bay Area and travels around the world giving keynotes, coaching and training on how to prepare for high-stakes presentations.

Mr. Gold has personally delivered over 15,000 presentations and over 12,000 hours of professional coaching and training while working with companies including, Glue Networks, Bill.com, Education.com, GetAround.com, Innovation Norway, SanDisk, Kaiser Permanente, and IBM — on designing, scripting and delivering more compelling and memorable presentations and product demos, especially in situations where you cannot afford to miss.

Born in the late 1950s, growing up, Nathan’s favorite show was Star Trek where he was mesmerized by the spaceships, phasers, tricorders, universal translators, and especially, the communicators. That program started his love for technology.

Nathan excelled at computers while in high school, finishing a 14-week programming course in the first three weeks of class. The teachers were impressed and sent him upstairs to work with the school’s IBM mainframes. He began teaching computer programming in the high school adult education program at the age of 16 working with students three times his age and he loved the interaction with adults and especially holding the chalk.

Nathan Gold is a graduate of SUNY Stony Brook with a major in Computer Science. As a teaching assistant with the Computer Science Department, he helped students with all sorts of computer issues.

Right out of college, Nathan designed and delivered mainframe computer programming classes at National Westminster Bank. However, he had a dream to live by the beach in California and travel the world while working for a high tech company. That dream was not coming true— on Long Island.

On Labor Day 1980, Nathan packed everything he owned into his beat up Oldsmobile and headed for California, even though he had never been there before. Five days later, Mr. Gold had four job interviews in Los Angeles and three in San Diego. He ended up choosing a small software company in San Diego named ISSCO Graphics, where he spent seven years traveling around the world training their customers how to use mainframe computer graphics software. As a result, he was the one go-to guy for all high-level executive sales briefings, trade shows, press issues, and analysts’ product demo needs because he was able to take complex topics and make them enjoyable for any audience.

In early 1990, Nathan fell in love with pen computers and mobile computing. I spent over 10 years working with people all over the world, evangelizing technology such as the PenPoint operating system and the Palm Pilot. During this time, he started helping other people with their product demos. And he did it as a favor because he really enjoys helping people.

In September 2000, Nathan started The Demo Coach business because he believed he could help other people learn to give more compelling and memorable presentations and product demos. Since then, Nathan has coached thousands of people all around the world for high stakes opportunities in sales meetings, trade shows, key notes and, especially angel and venture funding.

Nathan is a two-time winner of the distinguished DEMOgod Award, given at DEMOmobile 2000 for being “A one man walking communications store with the ability to deliver an incredibly well-timed demonstration.” And again, at DEMOfall 2005, for my demo of U3. He has a success rate with DEMO where 76% of the clients he coached for their on-stage performance have won their own DEMOgod Award.

Nathan is also the co-author of Giving Memorable Product Demos.
