Elevator Pitch: Tips, consulting & workshops in Berlin and onlineWell, what do you do? Find your Elevator Pitch with professional support
Consulting and workshops for your elevator pitch
Convince, inspire, sell with a clever elevator pitch. Develop your elevator pitch so that you and your offer are convincing.
An elevator pitch can have many faces, but it shouln’t be boring!
Storytelling is one of the proven methods, but there are many other surprising options for your elevator pitching.
The small talk with the seat neighbor in the airplane, in the coffee break during a congress, in the customer discussion, on network meetings, in interviews, and with investors is a precious opportunity, to draw attention to itself. Whatever you call it, you can pitch!
Unfortunately, many people do not succeed in seizing these opportunities. Very few people are prepared for this and are afterward angry about the missed opportunity. Next time, yes next time…
And you? Can you describe your offer in a few sentences in such a way that your dream talk partner becomes curious and wants to know more?
In the workshop or the consultation: We develop your elevator pitch step by step and fine-tune it until it unfolds its desired effect.

Originally I worked as a manager in marketing (after technical and commercial studies). For a while I supported start-ups as a management consultant during their foundation, including capital acquisition. For many years I have supported people in presenting themselves and their offers convincingly. A good idea, a product or a service provides the basis, but it also requires the ability to convince other people. Unfortunately, many projects fail or at least lag far behind the possibilities.
Within the framework of the Elevator Pitch workshops I pass on what is important. I do everything I can to ensure that you and your message leave a lasting impression on your conversational partners. Benefit from my experiences in marketing, psychology and communication skills.

Do you want to get ahead with your Elevator Pitch? The preparation of your elevator pitch is most intensive when I help you 1:1.
You determine the scope. At least a test run with professional feedback. Then you know for yourself what impression you and your elevator pitch make, what works and what you should leave, what improvements I recommend. Why do you only want to get such feedback after your real event? Then it is too late for corrections.
I am happy to accompany you with my experience in marketing, psychology and communication sciences. Such professional support is a good investment. You know best where the effort is worthwhile concerning the expected result. Benefit from the advantage. By the way, this can also be done with meetings over the phone or with video support.
Communication can be very easy. But often it is not. Sometimes we say things and then later notice from the reaction of our conversation partners that they seem to have spoken to someone completely different. I didn't say that with the best will in the world. - Or did I say that after all?
More or less consciously, conversations are about convincing other people of something - be it a special offer, your personality, a perspective, or a necessity. If this doesn't happen fast enough and above all not exactly to the point and descriptively, the person we are talking to quickly loses interest, and we lose the hoped-for opportunity. — Conversation failed.
You can let me support you in the preparation of your conversations and negotiations (to be on the safe side: no legal advice!). Find out how you and your message are perceived (arguments, body language, language, voice, and much more). I will familiarize you with effective tools and communication strategies. Develop your psychological skills, learn to stay calm, act confidently, remain authentic, and finally convince.
How convincing are you and your messages in speeches and presentations? How good are you in the 111+ most important presentation skills? I have been analyzing speeches since 1998. After evaluating 14,375 speeches and presentations, I can tell you very precisely what has which effect on which audience. Let me give you the feedback that will help you get ahead. You will receive essential feedback and recommendations, as well as the impulses you need to convince your audience in concrete situations.
Are you interested? Then you will find here the information on feedback with recommendations for improvements of speeches and presentations.
Quite an eye-opener, it brings structure to things which most everyone knows and understands and are common sense – now I’m applying it. I gained a lot of insights during the training one-on-one.
The trainer Karsten was really good. Now I know a lot more about verbal communication, bodylanguage, listening, the ussage of my voice. And what is even more important; now I know how to use the skills in my business. This course should be required for anyone interested in leading and managing people.
The course was excellent. Karsten held the audiences attention and while it was entertaining we learned a lot.
I learned more about my own communication skills with this coaching. I will utilize the skills learned to be a better communicator.
I did really enjoy the indivdual training. I gained different perspectives on situations and personal behaviour. The approach was very effective and the knowledge sticks in my mind. Very good.
The five-finger speech structure step by step. Systematically build up statements, whether for speeches, presentations, or discussions.
Assertiveness is based on persuasiveness. What needs to be convincing is inseparably linked to the person who wants to realize his or her intentions. In addition to the quality and attractiveness of the offer, a convincing presentation is also important. The way in which we are perceived has a great impact on our assertiveness and is a major factor in determining whether we gain trust and support or whether we encounter resistance. This not only applies in the professional context, but also in the private sphere.
Where to put your hands in conversations and during presentations? Just put your hands in your trouser pockets and the problem is solved. Many inexperienced speakers think this is quite a good idea. I (and most of the audience) don’t think it’s so good. Why? This question will be answered.
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.
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.
