Wait a minute, some presentations deserve more than others!


If you deliver a conference address to a small or large audience, you have a goal and a purpose. You want them to do, think or feel something in a specific way. Whether that’s to have them think differently about a situation, solution, or service, act on your recommendation, change their behavior, invest in your business, or buy into your plans and recommendations, if you don’t do it well, with authority, credibility and authenticity the impact will be less than you want it to be.

Whether it’s a presentation to a panel of experts, an official speech to the Advisory Council on the Assessment of Overall Economic Development or a short speech to mark the anniversary of an employee; you can spare your audience meaningless sentences, encyclopedic wisdom, and long detours and instead simply say exactly what you want to say – clear, authentic, convincing and at best with a sense of humor.




What I offer


When your delivery is flat and uninspiring or your message is not clear and convoluted, my event presentation consulting program is guaranteed to bring you, and it to life. I will show you how to develop a truly impactful speaking and presentation style that will help you deliver your message persuasively while building your professional reputation and the reputation of your business.

Many senior professionals, technical subject-matter experts, and category thought-leaders enjoyed the tailored and personalized training and coaching with me to prepare for important presentations.

If you are about to give an important conference address, keynote speech, or another professional presentation, my coaching helps you plan your content, practice your delivery and rehearse for your final performance, ensuring you deliver a presentation people will remember. Let’s tailor and personalize the focus of the coaching on those areas you need to concentrate on. I’ll help you with your message, your content, your storytelling, your slides, your delivery, your body language, your voice,… Many factors have an impact to make sure that you and your message are compelling.

Being able to competently address a larger audience is of paramount importance to my career. After working with Karsten one to one I noticed how both my confidence and my competence levels raised.

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.

Gary Mitchell



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