Quick-wittedness: Training for fast and professional communicationThink on your feet
Training for professional quick-wittedness
Group and individual training for more sovereignty and serenity. Funny sayings from a list are not enough. After all, you want to convince and improve your situation.
… “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 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!

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.
Since 1998, I support people in presenting themselves and their message convincingly. In this training, I share my knowledge. 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 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.
