A chance meeting between Tristan, an ultra-learner, and Michael, a public speaking coach, turned into a wild journey that took Tristan from zero public speaking experience to the finals of the World Championships of Public Speaking. Unlike most contestants who train for the competition year-round, Tristan started his training just 2 weeks before the competition started.
But with his unconventional approach to learning, Tristan accelerated past 30,000 competitors and eventually found himself standing among the top 10 speakers in the world.
Through this journey, Tristan and Michael realized they had a calling to combine the best ultra-learning techniques in the world with the art of public speaking. They founded UltraSpeaking to help spread the power of effective communication to the world's activists, thought-leaders, and change-makers.
