NOACK Training & Coaching Berlin (English & German)

Communication, marketing and psychology, to make you and your message compelling in conversations and presentations
Great ideas need wings as well as landing gear and someone to jump start them. Karsten Noack Training & Coaching Berlin



Yes, you’ve arrived at the right place. At least if you always want to see enthusiastic faces in front of you during your speeches and presentations, if you want to be mistaken for at least an anchorman in front of the camera without having the manual “Sovereign in front of microphone and camera” in your pocket, you want to learn how to negotiate cleverly and successfully, if you always want to have the right bon mot available or want to know how to stay positive in the memory of the audiences.

But also if you want honest and constructive feedback or are looking for new insights and additional perspectives. Then you have come to the right place!

Let me help you to convey your messages brilliantly, navigate media interviews effectively, deliver presentations and speeches that move people to action, and pitch to investors powerfully and effectively.

Just in case you speak German: My homepage in German is still much more detailed than this homepage in English. 

The motto of the day

May I introduce myself?

Hello, I am Karsten Noack! I live in Berlin and at the same time globetrotter. Since 1998 I’ have been an independent coach and trainer and I speak German and English. I am media-savvy and an engaged speaker. Height: 1.83 m, weight: 77 kg, just in case you want specifics! The focus of my work is coaching and training in Berlin – see website title ;-) – How to make you and your message compelling in conversations and presentations. That means to help people to present themselves and sell their proposition or their idea, or whatever it is that they are offering and to do this in a convincing and successful manner.  My clients include companies, executives, freelancers, and start-up businesses, people in politics and science, but some are also private individuals. And maybe you.

But now let’s see what I can do for you …

Coach and trainer Karsten Noack Berlin

Present yourself and your message convincingly


Whether you want to use it for your career, your business or your role as a do-gooder or expert, in talks, discussions, speeches, presentations or for the pitch of the next big thing … Both – the message and the messenger – must convince the audience. But this is sometimes easier said than done. Even the best concepts have to compete with many others.




Far too many opportunities remain unnoticed!


We never hear anything about certain great ideas, because they get dusty in the drawer, even if they could easily be implemented. A pity for everyone who would have benefited from it.

Many interesting messages don’t reach the right audience. Nowadays many people want to be heard, but only a few are willing to listen. The audience finds it difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Yes, you need courage. Not every message is received with open arms. Today the earth is round, yesterday it was considered flat. Those who dared to develop a new concept rarely made friends. If you are ready to do that, I will support you. Are you well-prepared? It is brilliant when good preparation meets the right opportunity.

When in the distant future it is written on my gravestone: “A travel companion for heroes”, I have made my contribution to the world and you.




What makes my offer so unique for you?


A look at my profile reveals that you benefit from my special background. For many of your concerns, the combination of communication science, marketing, and psychology is helpful for many of your concerns This knowledge and my experiences have already proven to be very successful for many clients. After all, the point is that you as a personality are just as convincing as your message. For example, body language plays a vital role in the personal impact you convey. Body language, in turn, is fundamentally based on inner beliefs.

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 means supporting 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. There are many people who want to change direction and still wrestle with old habits. In these and other areas I help you with constructive feedback and suggestions, encourage you to think and achieve clarity. I offer additional perspectives and expand your creative scope, prepare you for changes and accompany you on your journey through the challenges.

And if necessary, I offer training for some communication skills. Then you are really well-prepared.

How you doin’? Talking about diseases

The question “How are you?” is a constant one. Very few people answer it as a serious question. If, however, it is answered too personally, it overwhelms those who only ask out of habit or politeness. So, what do we do when we learn that a person we are talking to has a serious illness?

17 tips for facial expressions in speeches and presentations

17 tips for facial expressions in speeches and presentations

When the topic of body language appears in the context of the speech, it is usually about gestures and a solid stand. Facial expressions are discussed, if at all, with the hint to smile. This is a pity because it has a lot to offer as well as the potential to harm if it is not appropriate. What does not fit the personality and role of the speaker is unintentionally funny, damages credibility and distracts from the content and the message.

The article deals with what it is worth paying attention to as a speaker concerning facial expressions.

Structure for speeches and presentations: Take your audience from hell to heaven.

You offer a way to better conditions? It’s about promoting change? Whether products, processes, etc. You want to hold a public  office?

I call this easy to use and very effective speech structure the “Hell-Heaven-Way”. If the conditions are untenable and there are solutions available, you can also use it outside the church to convince your audience.

Be careful with comments!


In my role as a writer I am here for writing and you as a reader are responsible for reading. If you also write and I have to read that, you’ll mess things up here. Just like that.

Feel encouraged, I like that!
