You want to improve your public speaking skills? Or help your team members to present more effectively in business situations? Then our training and speaker coaching services might be exactly the right thing for you.

Inspired by TED(x) Talks - the global ideas conference talk format of highly engaging, personal, idea-driven talks - we coach you or your speakers for top performance on stage or in front of clients or organizational audiences.

The way we do it will be tailored to your individual or organizational needs - one on one coaching sessions on-site or virtually as well as group / team trainings or workshops. We provide TED(x) secrets, storytelling advice, feedback to visuals / presentation material as well as delivery coaching to support you in making your ideas shine and persuade and motivate others for action.

Contact us and we create a customized program for you.

Our EXPERIENCE

We have been working with hundreds of speakers from dozens of TEDx conferences - TEDxAmsterdam, TEDxBerlin, TEDxHamburg, TEDxFrankfurt, TEDxMünchen,... - as well as the Singularity Summit Germany conferences and of course executives (often C-level) and employees from large organizations and companies, such as Allianz, Bayer CropScience, BBDO Group, Beiersdorf, Bosch ED, Detecon Consulting, Deutsche Bahn, Deutsche Telekom, Fraunhofer Institut, Körber AG, Lufthansa, Munich Re, Pfizer, Telefónica, UBS, Volkswagen, Weberbank, as well as many startups.

We support communications or HR departments with their efforts to develop their leaders and teams and create more inspirational formats - for their clients, for their employees, or for management meetings. And we support individual professionals who want to take their public speaking skills to the next level. Because your ideas matter. 

Christopher helped me understand that whilst there are many strands in a story, it is important to focus on a few select ones. He helped me to distill down my thoughts to those that were most interesting, and most relevant to the subject of the day. I was really petrified of speaking without speaking notes. The coaching helped me gain comfort with cue cards and manage my fear in that way. I was able to free myself from the notes and therefore be much more natural and authentic and speak from my heart. As a result, I am far more comfortable today as a speaker, am happy to speak now without a full written speech and just cue cards. I have way more confidence.
