Dez Thornton


A lot of people would rather take a beating than get up and speak in front of a group.  But with a speaking coach like Dez, before you know it … you’ve chiseled out a tight outline, told a great story, had a few belly laughs and realized you’ve got the audience eating out of the palm of your hand. 


Professionally trained at the University of South Carolina and Dale Carnegie, Dez Thornton is an Executive Presentations Coach. He is a past president of the Georgia Chapter of the National Speakers Association and the winner of Speak Tank, a speaking competition hosted by the NSA.  He has been a speech coach for TEDx, 

coached hundreds of professionals and corporate clients, and even taught a public speaking class for 7 years at a federal prison.


At the tender age of nine, Dez forgot his lines in a church play but he never forgot the embarrassment and humiliation that followed.  Since then, he’s dedicated himself to teaching senior leaders the art and science of public speaking. 


Dez is the man to call on when you need to say the right words in the right way when it matters most.
