Presentation Skills Training in Berlin and OnlineEvery presentation is a self presentation
Presentation skills training
Interested in improving your public speaking skills? Speech training and communication training in groups or as individual training in Berlin. So that you convince your audience in presentations, meetings, and lectures.
Nice is not good enough!
You may have the greatest idea in the world, but if you cannot convince other people, it is only a nice idea.
Ladies and gentlemen,
please, may I have your attention?
Are you a leader, an independent contractor, or a public figure, and do you often have to speak in front of people, giving speeches and lectures in front of the camera? Take a moment to honestly ask yourself: Are you satisfied with your performance? Are you completely confident and convincing? Do you use the whole range of vocal pitch? Does your body language support your message? Do you always prepare your presentation with the most appropriate structure? Do you keep your audience entertained without fancy tricks? Can you handle critical issues or irrelevant remarks confidently?
You might not know this: Speeches should leave your audience more speechless than you. People should be captivated by your presentation and by your energy. It should be your goal to move and to inspire your audience rather than to deliver pure facts and figures.
If these are things you would like to achieve, you should consider booking a Presentation Skills Training Session with me, either as a group or individually.
And one last thing ….You have just learned one of the ways to structure a speech. It is the AIDA Formula: Attract the attention of your audience (Attention) — Raise interest by focusing on and by demonstrating advantages and benefits (Interest) — Convince people that they want and desire what you are offering and that it will satisfy their needs (Desire) — Lead the audience towards taking action (Action).
There are several offers for communication and presentation training. It is not always easy to decide which one is the most suitable. After all, there are many good alternatives. To help you make a more informed decision, I reveal a lot about myself and my activities on these pages. The numerous articles 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 procedure – you come to me for a first session one-to-one for 60 or 90 minutes.
Thanks, Karsten! The individual presentation skills training in English was insightful, stimulating and provided detailed steps for creating better presentations and proposals for my career as freelancer.
The workshop called Presentation Skills I-II-III changed my life. When I completed this training I realized that presenting is one of the most effective skills of leadership. I am looking forward to the next training with you, Karsten.
The ideas and techniques that you shared are practical and immediately able to be applied. The feedback from you and the team has been really helpful. Our team included both skilled and more novice presenters, and you tailored it accordingly, which was very appreciated. Thanks to your inspiration I am now working on professional storytelling.
Working with Karsten was transformational for my self-confidence when it comes to public speaking. He worked with me in a very supportive one-on-one setting which enabled me to concentrate on the challenges.
I’m often in the public eye, at press conferences and public speaking events and I’m under a lot of pressure sometimes. That’s why I’ve been looking for a speech coach for a long time. Now, I’ve been working with Karsten for the past year and I’ve seen such a tremendous development in my public speaking skills. His knowledge and techniques guided me to become a professional speaker, even though English isn’t my first language.
Since 1998, I support people in presenting themselves and their message convincingly. As part of the training for rhetoric and presentation, I pass on the basics and the advanced skills. I help you to convincingly present your message. Benefit from my experience in marketing, psychology, and presentation skills. You will learn to confidently step in front of your audience and move the audience.

Q: I have significant demands on my time and schedule. Do you provide an alternate method for face-to-face speech coaching and training?
A: Yes, I offer one-on-one speech coaching and training via telephone and online with video. If you can’t make face-to-face sessions, I can still help you to practice and polish your public speaking skills.
Q: I want to get paid for speaking professionally. Can you help me learn about the industry?
A: Yes! I can help you learn to speak professionally and give you some insight into the industry. It’s best to start with an assessment of your current skill level and identify gaps and strengths and take some coaching sessions. You next need to be able to clearly articulate your central purpose, message, and needs of your audience.
Q: I’m comfortable one-on-one with my clients, but I get nervous in groups. Can you help me become at ease with facilitating workshops?
A: Yes and your question is a very common one. I love helping clients design workshops and develop the art of presentation, working skillfully with people. Learning to become present and sensitive interpersonal communication skills are a major part of being at ease and fabulously facilitating workshops. I offer some presentation skills training.
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.
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.
Tongue breakers are used to train dedicated speakers for speaking, articulation, and concentration.
Do you want the attention of your audience? Humorously move your audience before the seat cusps hurt. Humor relaxes. It resolves tense, stressful situations. Humor has some positive effects. Appropriate humor can be used effectively in many speech situations. Find out what is worth paying attention to.
Some people have an opinion that deserves attention. Often, however, this opinion is not heard. Then it is time to decide whether to keep it that way or to share the point of view more clearly with others. Not everyone dares this step. What about you?
