SPEAKER COACH

Public speaking. For some a nightmare, for others a moment to shine. That said: to some extent presenting always involves a bit of an adrenaline rush. No reason to worry. It helps us to perform stronger. But how to keep your nerves in control and how to further improve your story?

Speaker skills: What to learn?

I teach you how to give a powerful presentation. In terms of form, content and matching with your style and your industry. A few of the coaching subjects that are dealt with are:

  • Preparing your storyline
  • Personal presentation
  • Authenticity and humor
  • Dealing with stress
  • Audience interaction
  • Use of visuals and slides
  • Control of environmental factors

The setup of speaker coaching

I coach both groups [in-company] as well as individuals. With one-on-one coaching we’ll meet, within a compact timeframe, at least three times. Both theory and practise will be covered. We’ll pay attention to your storyline, we’ll explore possible limiting thoughts, you’ll practise your story, I’ll give you tips and if you wish I attend one of your presentations. My coaching takes place at home, at your office or at any other preferred location. I also provide remote assistance [through Skype and e-mail] during last-minute presentation preparations.

With group trainings it is remarkable to notice how team spirit gets a boost and how “the story of our company” gets a new impulse. Peer feedback and the hands-on-mentality of my sessions resonate with a broad range of industries, for whom I also work as an event moderator. Are you ready? Go ahead and grab the stage!
