Impromptu speaking: Speaking off the cuffHow to give an impressive impromptu speech
Training for impromptu speeches
Make a success of speaking off the cuff. Learn how to deliver a powerful impromptu speech. Impromptu speaking tips and training.
I’m just preparing my impromptu remarks.
… “Do not you want to say a few words about your experiences?”
… “May I ask you for a short statement on the subject?”
… “Did I forget to let you know that we announced you as a speaker?”
Impromptu speeches are the pinnacle of communication because they are kept out of the situation without any preparation. …
Completely free and without any preparation? In fact, you can train a lot beforehand: namely, all the techniques that make it possible to spontaneously confidently and convincingly expose your words to the public. In the future, you will no longer have to fake a fainting spell or tip over a glass of red wine over your white shirt so you do not have to go on stage.
With practice, you will have only one problem with blatant language: Hardly anyone will believe that you have not been in the study room for at least a day with lots of coffee. But that’s acceptable, right?

There are several options for communication and presentation training. It is not always easy to decide which one is the best. There are many good alternatives. To help you make an informed decision, I will tell you a lot about myself and what I do on these pages. The numerous articles will give you a first impression of my style. You can learn about the WHAT, the HOW and also the WHY. I like transparency. You can also ask someone who has already worked with me, or - the most convincing and effective way - come and see me for a first 60 or 90-minute session.
Working with Karsten, you’ll learn how to be persuasive and command audiences every time.

Since 1998 I have been helping people to present themselves and their message in a convincing way. As part of the Impromptu Speaking Training, I share my experience in impromptu speaking. It’s my favorite training. When you speak off the cuff, everything comes together: Emotional state management, presentation skills, body language, voice, etc.
People who have learned to enjoy speaking off the cuff become generally calmer and more confident. Even well-prepared speeches and presentations become more convincing with this knowledge. Benefit from my experience in marketing, psychology, communication and presentation skills.

I call this easy to use and very effective speech structure the “Hell-Heaven-Way”. If the conditions are untenable and there are solutions available, you can also use it outside the church to convince your audience.
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.

Read the 14 “Rules” of improvisation theater. Models and wisdom for coaching and presentation skills. I do not only recommend the books and ideas of Keith Johnstone to participants in my workshops.
