Karsten Noack: Be Seen. Be Heard. Make a Difference.

Coaching, consulting and training: Communication and presentation skills, marketing and psychology to present yourself 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 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, you want to learn how to negotiate cleverly and successfully, if you always want to have the right saying 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 in conversations, navigate media interviews effectively, deliver presentations and speeches that move people to action, and pitch to investors powerfully and compellingly.

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



The coronavirus is still an issue! Experts and the government are at odds over the consequences. And I am not a virologist.

I will not be conducting my open group training before spring 2021. Individual sessions in my facilities are possible, according to the official rules and recommendations. Some clients enjoy sessions while we have a walk through the Tiergarten. Others prefer sessions by telephone or with video support via the Internet. As a responsible and effective alternative for group training and also 1:1 sessions (individual training, coaching, and consulting), video sessions via the Internet have proven to be very effective. 

Please take good care of yourself and those you love.

The motto of the day

Not what we have 
but what we enjoy constitutes our abundance.


Abundance? It is such a cliche, but it is true: money cannot buy happiness. One of the quickest and easiest ways to allow abundance into your life is by deliberately focusing more on gratitude.

May I introduce myself?

Hello, I am Karsten Noack! I live in Berlin and I have been a globetrotter for a long time. After a career in management and consulting, I offer my experience since 1998 as a consultant, coach, and trainer. I am a media-savvy and engaged speaker, myself. The focus of my work is to make you and your message compelling in conversations and presentations.

My clients include companies, executives, freelancers, and start-up businesses, people in politics and science, while some are also private individuals. And maybe you.

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

Present yourself and your message convincingly


Whether you want to improve your communication and public speaking skills for your career, your business, 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 — have to convince the audience. 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 lost. No one is willing or able to bring them alive, 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 background noise is loud and we are constantly distracted. The audience finds it difficult to separate the interesting offers from the empty promises.

Yes, you need courage. Not every message is received with open arms. Today the earth is round, yesterday it was considered flat. Those who dare to change the world view do not only make friends. Changes often create resistance! Are you well-prepared? It is brilliant when good preparation meets the right opportunity. If you are willing to speak up, I will support you.

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 remarkable 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, you as a personality must be just as convincing as your message. Persuasiveness is based on several factors. For example, body language plays a vital role in the personal impact you convey. Body language, in turn, is fundamentally based on inner beliefs.

Let me help you,
present your messages brilliantly,
effectively conduct media interviews,
to give presentations and speeches,
to address the audience powerfully and compelling,
and encourage people to act.

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. Clients come to me because they have important decisions to make, or they have ideas and find it difficult to implement them. Many people 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 dream, think and achieve clarity. I offer additional perspectives and expand your creative scope, prepare you for changes and accompany you on your journey.

Narcissists and feedback

People make mistakes and can learn from them. With narcissists this is unlikely. Even to harmless and cautious feedback, narcissists respond as if it were harsh inappropriate criticism.

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.
