A few hundred thousand years of evolution and our human brain still can’t tell the difference between a snarling saber-toothed tiger and the audience in front of us.

Stage fright was my worst problem. Now I even enjoy public speaking because I have something important to say.
I had stage fright. The training with trainer and coach Karsten Noack was accessible, filled with humor, excellent new perspective on communication methods, tricks and techniques to getting control of nerves. This helped me to overcome my fear of presenting in front of a crowd.
I never, ever wanted to be in a leading position. Public speaking made me feel sick. When it came to public speaking, I stumbled on my words. But then I discovered that I have to speak up for what I believe in and a miracle happened. I wanted to change. Working with Karsten helped me to overcome my fear of public speaking.
A friend of mine recommended the stage fright trainer Karsten Noack and it was great. He helped me during personal, confidential coaching sessions with my presentations in English. It was very good, I learned some really useful things and now I feel much safer in English presentations as well.
When I spoke English in front of an audience, I felt like a different person. When I speak English I have a German accent and as a result I felt not powerful. I got a lot out of the training and coaching and and now I feel more confident in my skills. This increased confidence was due to the honest, open approach. I don’t suffer from stage fright any more. Not even when I present in English.
Since 1998, I have been helping people present themselves and their messages convincingly. I have also helped many speakers with severe speaking anxiety and social phobia. Because sometimes it is more than just stage fright, I am also licensed to do psychotherapy. When you work with me – because you want to enjoy your performances in front of your audience – you are in good hands.
