Thor Holt
host, Write With Courage! podcast; founder, communications coaching business

Thor believes everyone should be encouraged to claim their personal freedom to speak. A former TEDx speaker on confidence, he now runs a communication coaching business. He has a keen interest in political and social matters, which led to his hosting both the Write With Courage! podcast and The Shetland Times podcast. A previous workshop leader at Massachusetts Institute of technology (MIT) Boston, Thor assisted technical start-up teams with their pitching, and in August 2013 was invited to become an Entrepreneur In Residence there. Thor’s first film script Brexit Bast**ds! has just been produced, and premieres at Battle of Ideas, Oct 2017.
