Our Team

Tammy Palazzo

Tammy Palazzo

Co-Founder

 

Tammy’s passion for communication was born out of her own challenges and fears with public speaking. After decades of anxiety (despite a powerful solo rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” in a 2nd-grade talent show) led her to learn how to effectively communicate and reduce her nerves. She then decided it was time to help others improve their own skills. Tammy brings several decades of business development and brand marketing experience to Presentr and is also a trainer, facilitator, and coach focusing on helping people change their behaviors through practice. When not speaking to anyone who will listen, Tammy focuses her energies on her two dogs and also forces her two teenage sons to spend time with her.

Tim Wikstrom

Co-Founder

 

Tim’s passion for communication has spanned two decades, focusing on executive coaching and training for most of that time. Prior to founding Presentr, Tim founded several companies focused on coaching and communication. Tim brings all his knowledge of the learning process and the most effective ways to help learners change their behaviors to his work and has leveraged his large database of clients to introduce them to the platform. When not focusing on getting people to stop using filler words, Tim enjoys binge-watching Netflix, cooking, and enjoying rich and unhealthy desserts.

From running his own business to writing code across multiple sectors and industries, Greg has been a software developer for over 25 years. He has a special interest in artificial intelligence, gaming, and electronics. For fun, Greg developed an AI environment for elevator control simulation to program, measure and track elevator systems.

His favorite things are fresh garden tomatoes, family time with his wife and two kids, board games, playing on his Commodore 64, playing with his new black lab puppy Grizelda, making and grooming hiking trails, and wearing slippers.

Michael Wedderburn

With more than 20 years in technology and development, every day offers new challenges and new experiences. Michael has a natural curiosity into how things work and is a tinkerer at heart. When not coding a love of Anime and experimenting with new and different technologies fills the void. He also focuses his time on his two sons and his dog Beast. His current interests are Blockchain and Machine Learning.

Chiara Cammarata

Chiara Cammarata

Operations Manager

 
 
Chiara was born with a mind made for all things operational. Everything needs to fit into a neat, organized box and when it doesn’t, she makes it her mission to see that it does. Working in startup after startup, she learned that putting out fires is a standard part of the entrepreneurial experience, and after years of immolation one learns to anticipate those fires and thwart them before they even start. When not fighting the gods of Chaos, she plays competitive beach volleyball, hits the gym, and loves to entertain guests by whipping up home-cooked meals and battling them in Catan!
