Fundamental public speaking training​


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

Speeches to employees and company meetings, grand openings, product launches, presentations to clients and convention attendees – the art of public speaking and persuasion must be learned. Unless, of course, you are from Athens and directly related to the author of De Oratore, or you have won every argument with your parents since the age of three because you are a master of Scrabble.

If you do not already have brilliant oratory skills, you can take your first steps as a professional speaker by attending the Presentation skills training I, where you will learn the essentials of public speaking.

Why and when with me?


There are several options for communication and presentation training. It is not always easy to decide which one is the best. There are many good alternatives. To help you make an informed decision, I will tell you a lot about myself and what I do on these pages. The numerous articles will 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 way - come and see me for a first 60 or 90-minute session.

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

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.

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.
