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
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.
Many words, little meaning! The world is full of promises that are not kept. If it bothers us, we could change it. At least for ourselves, we can decide whether we stand by our words or not. How about being more attentive to our own statements?
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 …
- “How do I perform in speeches and presentations and what can I improve?”
- “A very important presentation is coming up and I need help with the preparation”
- “Are you preparing me for an important conversation or negotiation?”
- “How can I make my presentations and speeches generally more convincing?”
- “How can I present myself and what I offer effectively?”
- “As a CEO, I want to come across as sovereign and convincing. Help me with my leadership presence.”
- “How do people perceive me?”
- “Please, prepare me for a media interview.”
- “I want to speak more spontaneously off-the-cuff.”
- “My stage fright makes each presentation a torture for me! How can I change that?”
- “I want to be more quick-witted in the professional context?”
- “How can I make difficult decisions easier?”
- “I want a trained conversation partner and an experienced coach, for feedback, additional perspectives, and insights.”

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.
“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.
Create an excellent speech or presentation. It will bring you forward as a presenter. Every speaker should make a brilliant speech at least once in his life. The effect goes far beyond the event because the experience becomes a mental reference. Such an experience will change you as a speaker. Create your rhetorical masterpiece. Here is how to do it.
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?
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.
Is it really a good idea to avoid criticism at all costs? Could criticism have value?
Does everyone have to say something about everything? In my opinion, the most important rule of rhetoric and good communication style is that those who have nothing to say should shut up.
Tongue breakers are used to train dedicated speakers for speaking, articulation, and concentration.
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!
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!

A perfect combination of empathy for each situation, incredibly fast understanding of the concrete topic and the right questions to identify, explore and implement a solution. There are few people in this world to whom you can open up like Mr. Noack.
