Wait a minute, some presentations deserve more than others!


When you deliver a conference speech to an audience, large or small, you have a goal and a purpose. You want them to do, think, or feel something in a certain way. Whether it’s getting them to think differently about a situation, solution or service, to act on your recommendation, to change their behavior, to invest in your business, or to 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, a formal address to the Board of Directors, or a short speech to celebrate an employee’s anniversary, you can spare your audience meaningless sentences, encyclopedic wisdom, and long detours and instead simply say exactly what you want to say – clearly, authentically, persuasively, and, if possible, with a sense of humor.




What I offer


If your delivery is flat and uninspiring, or your message is unclear and muddled, my coaching is guaranteed to bring you and your message 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 company.

Many senior executives, technical experts and category thought leaders have enjoyed the customized and personalized training and coaching I provide to help them prepare for key presentations.

If you are about to deliver an important conference speech, keynote address, or other professional presentation, my coaching will help you plan your content, practice your delivery, and rehearse your final performance to ensure you deliver a presentation people will remember. Let’s tailor and personalize the focus of the coaching to the areas you need to focus on. I’ll help you with your message, your content, your storytelling, your slides, your delivery, your body language, your voice… Many factors play a role in making sure you and your message are compelling.

A good start: Professional feedback with suggestions for improvement​


How persuasive are you and your messages in speeches and presentations? How good are you at the 111+ most important presentation skills? I have been analyzing speeches since 1998. After evaluating 14,375 speeches and presentations, and numerous mistakes of my own, most of which I only discovered after a delay, I can tell you exactly what works with which audience. Let me give you the feedback that will help you get ahead. You will receive essential feedback and recommendations, as well as the impulses you need to persuade your audience in concrete situations.

Are you interested? If so, here is how to get helpful feedback with recommendations for improving your speeches and presentations.

Your public presentation coach


Delivering a conference speech, pitching a client for new business, making the most of a networking event, preparing for a job interview, or coming up with some witty remarks for an after-dinner speech – these are all challenges I can help you with.

For many years, I have been helping people present themselves and their message in a compelling way. When I prepare you for important speeches and presentations, I pass on what matters: You learn how to be fully present and thus fully access your skills and knowledge. I’ll help you get your message heard and understood. Benefit from my experience in marketing, psychology and communication.

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.

There are good speechwriters. But what value has the best manuscript, when the performance is uncharitable? Unfortunately, in the end, the cupcakes are the highlight! An important speech deserves preparation, rehearsals, …
