Karsten was a great speech coach. He fast-tracked my presentation skills in a month and prepared me to confidently take the stage. It was a great success!

Michael Holmes


The presentation skills training and subsequent one-to-one preparation of my next presentation were invaluable to me. I highly recommend both for anybody with high standards.

Robert Stephenson


Karsten Noack is the expert in the field and the most experienced presentation skills trainer that I have met during my career. We asked him to help us with our pitch because he has a background in marketing, too. We are absolutely happy with the result. Therefore we recommend him. Karsten gave us feedback to enhance our presentation and spared no detail. I specifically appreciate how he took the time to comb through our content and took the seat of the audience to ensure no stone is left unturned in our pitch. He is extremely generous with sharing his immense experience. Karsten is a very calming presence which puts us at ease. He truly wants the best for his clients.

My keynote went extremely well, thanks to Karsten. And I can’t wait to work together on the next event.
