Quick-WittednessThink On Your Feet
It increases the courage with the occasion.
Training for the quick professional response
… “Mr. Noack, honestly. You can’t learn quick-wittedness!”
– “That’s right! Just as one can’t learn to fold paper boats!”
Quick wittedness is not a parlor game for the minority but is actually trainable – even if you do not learn as fast as Churchill and Mark Twain. In my training sessions and particularly this seminar you will learn to stay autonomous and confident instead of forgetting your words and sweating nervously and be able to handle verbal resistance.
… You’ll be so charming and successful that it will remind aggressive resisting people, sarcastic colleagues, and know-it-alls, not to interrupt you again — seminar passed!

Since 1998, I support people in presenting themselves and their message convincingly. As part of the professional repartee training, I share my knowledge so that the participants rhetorically assert themselves. We make sure that you improve your position with your quick-wittedness, instead of relying on short-term effects. Benefit from my experience in marketing, psychology, and rhetoric.
By the way, body language plays a very important role here. The best form of repartee makes sure you do not even get attacked. I’m looking forward to the training!

I am not a native English speaker but many of my clients are. Quick witted people are considered good communicators because it is a primary communication skill. The training with Mr. Noack showed me how to be quick-witted also in an international setting.
The charismatic business leaders are always quick-witted. They have the ability to take control of the situation and make a rapid-fire answer. In German, I am that kind of person. Now I am able to respond in English and German fast and effective as never before. The additional coaching sessions are highly recommended.
