"Having attended events Heather had Tech Hosted, I knew THA would include great tips and action plans. With each recorded class and live event online, I walked away with ideas I could immediately use to develop my presence as a tech host and to improve my in-person meetings too.

With all the support Heather provides, I’ve already taken on more tech hosting work and seen a return on my investment in the course. Without THA, I would still be trying to figure out if growing my tech host work was even possible!"

Become a
Dream Tech Host

Simply put, I could not teach as effectively online without the expertise of Heather Martinez. She is the dream tech host who allows me the freedom to do what I do best: teach.

She handles all the technical details of being virtual, orients and organizes the students to the online environment, provides a platform to interact and review student work and records and publishes the event.

Heather has taught me best practices for organizing my curriculum and has worked with me to market and manage my workshops. I’ve also worked with tech hosts trained by Heather and all have been excellent.

"I love that people are able to connect and create meaningful communities whether they know each other well or are in different continents.

Tech hosting can encourage and reinforce the deep connections we want to have in any meeting or gathering."

Michal, Tech Host
