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 if you want to learn how to stand confidently in front of the camera without needing the handbook “Confidence in front of the camera and mic”. Do you want to be mistaken for a TV presenter? Do you want to learn how to negotiate cleverly and successfully? Do you want to be able to come up with one-liners on the spot? Do want to know how to be witty and charismatic on cue? Do you want to leave lasting impressions on your audiences? Do you want to tell people in short and simple terms what it is that you do? Do you want honest feedback for new insights and additional perspectives? Then you have definitely come to the right place!
Hello, I am Karsten Noack! I live in Berlin and at the same time, I am a 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: 73 kg, just in case you want specifics! The focus of my work is coaching and training in Berlin – see website title ;-) – 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 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 client, too.
So, what I can I do for you? …
Whether you want to use it for your career, your business or your role as a do-gooder, in talks, speeches, presentations or for the pitch of the next big thing … Only if both — the message and the messenger — are convincing, you will move ahead. 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 as they dust in the drawer, even if they could be implemented easily. A pity for all those who would have benefited.
A lot of interesting messages do not reach the appropriate audience. Nowadays, many people want to be heard, but only few are prepared to listen. Thus, it is not easy to be noticed when even the recipients have a hard time 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 considered flat. Those who dared to launch a new concept have rarely made friends. If you are willing to do that, I will support you. Are you well-prepared? It is absolutely brilliant when good preparation meets the right opportunity.
When in a far-away future it is written on my gravestone, “A companion for heroes!”, I have made my contribution to the world and to you.
- “How can I make my presentations and speeches more convincing?”
- “How can I present myself and what I am offering effectively?”
- “From day one as a new manager, I want to come across as confident and persuasive right away”
- “I’ve got a very important presentation coming up and need support and preparation”
- “Please, prepare me for an interview with the media”
- “I want to speak more spontaneously and off-the-cuff?”
- “My stage fright makes each performance a torture! How can I change this?”
- “How can I be more quick-witted?”
- “How can I lead successful meetings and negotiations?”
- “How can I make difficult decisions more easily?”
- “I want a trained conversation partner and an experienced coach, for feedback, additional perspectives, and insights.”

“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.
I appear to me that too few people are willing to stand up for what is right. Too many times we keep on complaining about the injustice in the world, but so few of us are willing to stand up and speak up. With little or no backing those few who do speak up then inevitably find themselves victimized – and that while others watch in silence. Somehow we completely miss the fact that when we do not speak up against injustice we become complicit in it.
Why is it that when people observe something wrong being done or said, they simply cannot find the courage to speak up against it? Is it that we fear being victimised? Or do we fear being disliked?read more

I know Karsten for over 2 years now and worked with him on many topics, from presenting to building a personal brand. He always gave very good training and advice. Also, he is an excellent hypnotherapist that helps you to solve almost any issue in one session – very impressive! My mental trainer of choice!
I asked coach Karsten Noack to help me to clarify my goals and ended up with even more. Now I got a vision, a mission and a strategy to make it happen. I stay in contact via Skype because this coaching is good for me and my business.
Karsten knows what it takes to deliver a powerful speech or presentation that makes a great impact. His enthusiasm is infectious.
Loved it! Working with Karsten is always comforting, challenging and inspiring all at once. The results exeeded my expectations. With that combination of business coaching and consulting I developed my business model as quickly as possible. Thank you!
