Overcoming stage fright


Sweaty palm trees, a racing heart, a blushing face, a trembling voice… Do you suffer from stage fright?

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. It reacts with the same chemical processes in our brain and body. It is the flight or fight reaction that is supposed to secure our survival. Well, but not very helpful.

So, please don’t run away! You would miss this great opportunity to finally face your fear of stepping out of your shadow and being the center of attention. Then you will be proud of your achievement. I know, yes, I know, I hear you say, “It’s much easier said than done, Mr. Noack,” but let me show you how it works!

What clients say


Stage fright was my worst problem. Now I even enjoy public speaking because I have something important to say.

Richard Steel


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.

Helen Klein


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.

Christie Linley


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.

Alex Frank


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.
