Think On Your Feet
improrhetorik™ - Karsten Noack Training & Coaching Berlin

It increases the courage with the occasion.

William Shakespeare



… “Mr. Noack, honestly. You can’t learn quick-wittedness!”
– “That’s right! Just as one can’t learn to fold paper boats!”


Quick-wittedness is not a parlor game for the minority but is actually trainable – even if you do not learn as fast as Churchill and Mark Twain. In my training sessions and particularly this seminar you will learn to stay autonomous and confident instead of forgetting your words and sweating nervously and be able to handle verbal resistance.

… You’ll be so charming and successful that it will remind aggressive resisting people, sarcastic colleagues, and know-it-alls, not to interrupt you again — seminar passed!
