Presentation Skills I

Basic training in public speaking


Public speaking is the number one way to gain credibility as an expert in your field, gain the trust of your stakeholders, drive business, and stand out as a leader. In order to achieve these goals, you must be able to create focused, engaging content, connect with your audience, and deliver your speech with confidence.

Speeches in front of employees and company meetings, openings, product launches, presentations to customers and congress participants — the art of speech and persuasion has to be learned. Unless you are originally from Athens and are directly related to the author of De Oratore, or if you won every argument with your parents from the age of three on because you are the master of Scrabble.

If you do not already possess brilliant oratory skills, then you can take your first steps as a professional speaker by joining the seminar Presentation Skills I. Here you will learn the basics of public speaking. You will find out how you are perceived by the audience. The aim of the training is to speak skillfully, authentically and confidently. In this way, you can convey your message well.​

Why and when with me?


There are several offers for communication and presentation training. It is not always easy to decide which one is the most suitable. After all, there are many good alternatives. To help you make a more informed decision, I reveal a lot about myself and my activities on these pages. The numerous articles give you a first impression of my style. You can learn about the WHAT, the HOW, and also the WHY. I like transparency. You can also ask someone who has already worked with me or – the most convincing and effective procedure – you come to me for a first session one-to-one for 60 or 90 minutes.

What clients say


I’m a shy person, but now my voice is so clear and strong. I enjoyed the training with Karsten.

Andrea Simon
London, Great Britain


As an immigrant in Germany, I had difficulties with communication and presentation, especially to senior management. Karsten coached me in private lessons to master the skills of professional presentation and effective communication with executives at a high level. His coaching has had a major impact on my career.

Arrun Fisher

Before working with Karsten, one-on-one, I lacked the confidence to find my unique voice. Through his incredible training, I have been able to make interesting and impactful presentations. It was really one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in training. Working with Karsten has truly been an investment in my career.
