NOACK Training & Coaching Berlin

Classical coaching and training on how to present yourself and your message in English & German
Great ideas need wings as well as landing gear and someone to jump start them. Karsten Noack Training & Coaching Berlin

Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.




Yes, that’s right! You’ve arrived at the right place! Well, you have if you want to see excited beaming faces in front of you in your future presentations and speeches and to learn how to stand confidently in front of the camera without needing the handbook “Confidence in front of the camera and mic”. If you want to be mistaken for a TV presenter, to learn how to negotiate cleverly and successfully, to be able to come up with one-liners on the spot, to know how to be witty and charismatic on cue, to leave lasting impressions on your audience and to persuade and show people what it is that you do, or even if you just want honest feedback for new insights and additional perspectives, then you have definitely come to the right place!

May I introduce myself?

Coach and trainer Karsten Noack Berlin

Hi, I’m Karsten Noack! I live in Berlin and at the same time am a globetrotter. Since 1998 I’ve been an independent coach and trainer and speak German and English. More about me? Well, I’m media-savvy and a talented speaker. Height: 1.83 m just in case you want specifics! The focus of my work is coaching and training in Berlin – see website title ;-) – to help people to present themselves and sell their proposition, ideas or whatever it is that they are offering in a convincing and successful manner. My clients are companies, executives, professionals and start-up businesses, people in politics and science, but some are also private individuals. And maybe you will be my next client too.

So what I can I do for you? …

Present yourself and your offer convincingly


Whether it is for your career or as a world improver, in talks, speeches, presentations or the pitch for the next big thing … Only when both — messenger and message — convince, you move ahead. But this is sometimes easier said than done. Even the best offer has to compete with many others.



Far too many opportunities remain ignored!


We never hear anything about some great ideas because they dust in the drawer, even those who could be realized easily. A pity for all those who would benefit.

Many interesting messages do not reach the appropriate audience. Nowadays, many people want to be heard, only a few listen. Therefore, it is not easy to be noticed because it is a challenge for the recipient to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Yes, it takes courage. Not every message is welcomed with open arms. Today the earth is round, yesterday it was still considered flat. But those who dared to refer too early to such circumstances rarely made friends. If you are willing to do that, I support you. When in a far away future on my gravestone is written; “Companion for heroes!”, I have made my contribution to you and to the world.

Are you well-prepared? It is absolutely brilliant when good preparation meets the right opportunity.

One more question, Mr. Noack: What exactly is coaching?


Coaching is …” Well, as far as the lexicon is concerned there are many definitions. For me, coaching is to support people who are at a turning point or stuck in a dead end. People who have important decisions to make, who have ideas and find it difficult to implement them. People who want to change direction and still wrestle with old habits. In these areas and more, I’ll help you by giving constructive feedback and suggestions, I’ll encourage reflection and create clarity. I offer additional perspectives and expand your creative leeway, preparing you for change and accompanying you on your journey even through the challenging parts.

And where necessary I offer training addressing idle skills. After that, then you are really well-prepared.

Body Language Expert Explains Trump’s Awkward Day At The NATO Summit

It may be mere speculation that Donald Trump is compensating for something. Yes, certain behavior may give that impression.

I guess most people agree that Trump wants to be seen as an alpha male. We needn’t have to look further than to his body language to confirm that. It seems to be so important for him — that his desperately desire appears more often as insecurity than as a sign of strength. Someone with a strong self-confidence wouldn’t do it like that. Even though it is good to remember former US presidents; most of them showed some kind of bit strange alpha male behavior — even Barack Obama. That’s how US-Presidents do it! But all that is harmless in comparison to Donald Trump’s strange behavior and all the handshake gates. His special handshake style came under media scrutiny after meetings with the Japanese and Canadian leaders.

Let me analyze Donald Trump’s body language when he met Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron, Duško Marković and other leaders at the NATO-Summit in Brussels.

Eliminating Your Fear Of Public Speaking

What’s the big deal about public speaking? Old books will tell you that there’s no reason why you should be afraid to give a public speech.

For a long time, the understanding was that people were afraid because they weren’t prepared. So, the whole focus was spent on being as well prepared as possible. And preparation meant the technical part of presenting. Do it again and again and everything will be fine. Therefore many trainers developed programs, which are really heavy on preparation and practice. But, that isn’t enough for most people with intense stage fright.
