  • The Grow Program How to get better in presenting

  • How do I sell myself

    I have seen the most successful entrepreneurs and startups and educators and facilitators turning into a humble little something when it comes to presenting themselves. We know that it is so much easier to find a strong voice when talking about someone else or someone elses project. In a 45min workshop, I will help you finding your self confidence and right phrasing when it comes to introducing yourself.

    Important for: Pitching, Group Introduction, Meeting Prospects, Meeting Potential Sponsors. (anything)

  • Who am I talking to?

    Think is, some people enjoy long conversation about you and your family, some people are just suffering like a dog if you dont get to the point. How can you differentiate in the first few minutes? I would like to share a very unacademic, but highly useful and instantly applicable profiling methodology. You can find out instantly and adress people in an appropriate way.

  • Kill Stagefright

    Stages turn people into different personalities. Introverts become crazy jerks, extroverts turn into a shy little mouse once they have climbed the stage. What is the magic, here? Why do we behave so weird, when we are on stage? Why is it so scary to expose yourself on a stage, in front of an audience? I cant turn you intro a stage guru if you just hate being on a stage. But I can take away the frightening part of it. I can help you taking it, as what it is: a special furniture that helps you being heard from the last row.

    Important for: Presenting, Hosting, Introducing, Delivering a Talk

  • Kill Stagefright

    Stages turn people into different personalities. Introverts become crazy jerks, extroverts turn into a shy little mouse once they have climbed the stage. What is the magic, here?

  • Sell a concept/an idea

    Pitching for your idea has many stages. We are talking about early stage, when you pitch internally, when you want to get your company behind the idea, or when you want to get people behind it. This lecture/workshop is a pre-elevator-pitch class. You need to get a lot of people on your side, before you are ready to speak out. There is a lot of helpful insight to share...

    Important for: Recruiting teams, Selling internally, Getting ready for VC Pitch

  • What makes a great talk?

    There is no secret recipe for a great talk. However there are a few tricks and tweaks and twists, that can turn a talk into a great talk. And there are a few patterns and archetypes to start with. Why do we love to listen to some people and why is it sometimes so hard to follow, even if both speaker and topic are relevant and interesting? The thing is: both, experienced speakers, and rookies, can always improve their presentation skills. From my experience: the best speakers are the ones who show most interest in coaching. Where are you?

    Important for: Public Speaking, Representing Companies/Organisations, Internal Talks and Speeches.

  • Teach the Teacher Let me share with you what I have learned.

  • What makes a great host?

    The main role of the host is to establish a great atmosphere of the event and to prepare the stage for the next speaker. An event should never turn into the hosts private gig. However of course there is more to that. And here some tiny advice in advance: a great hosts work begins long before the event opens its doors. Being host is something I have never learned but grown into it. With probably the best mentors in the world. Ready to share it with you.

    Important for: Hosts, MCs

  • How to Steer a Speaker from Draft to Talk

    Some speakers have a lot to share, but no idea where to start and where to end. And it is a great curators task to find unheard and unexpected people to invite them on a stage. The most beautiful talks I have coached and speakers I went along with, where those who have never spoken at a conference, before. But of course, some speakers are already done with their talk and it just takes a little finetuning to turn a presentation into a talk.

    Important for: Curators, Hosts, Speaker Coaches.

  • Rehearsing Standards

    Routined speakers agree: the most important thing to do before your talk is to rehearse. There are certain ways of rehearsing and all make sense. The best talks, I have seen, came across supernaturally but only after precise, disciplined and long rehearsing. Let me share with you my experiences with coaching and rehearsing 100 speakers a year, and also how to deal with those who belief, coaching is only required for whicky whacky first time speakers...

    Important for: Curators, Hosts, Speaker Coaches.

  • Looking forward to hearing from you J
