Classical coaching and training. 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! Well, you have if you want to see excited faces in front of you in your next presentations and speeches, and if you want to learn how to be sovereign 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 you 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 and what is in it for them? Do you want honest feedback for new insights and additional perspectives? Then you have definitely come to the right place!

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

Motto of the day

The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause. Mark Twain

When most people get up to speak they tend to talk from the moment they are introduced till they sit down. Most speaker ignore that the pauses in their talk can get a lot of attention. How about exploring the power of pauses today?

May I introduce myself?

Coach and trainer Karsten Noack Berlin

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: 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 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? …

Present yourself and your concern convincingly



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 … It is necessary that both — the message and the messenger — 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 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.




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. This knowledge and my experiences have already proved very successful for many clients. After all, the point is that both are convincing; You as a personality as well 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 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 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.
