Public speaking training
Communication skills for leadership and success
The communications expert
I have been working in the communications industry for nearly two decades in a series of roles: as a journalist, a film-maker and more recently as a PR consultant.
Today I accompany prominent personalities, important organizations and renowned companies to communicate effectively. Well-structured key messages that are authentic and empathetic in tone make up the core of my coaching and training approach.
How does one become an excellent speaker? It's my mission to be able to give a distinct and personalized answer to each client. My strongest source of inspiration has been the many leaders, celebrated publishers and public figures I am honoured to have interviewed and worked with.They have had a big influence on what I teach and train today.
During my time as a TV producer, celebrated talkshow hosts such as Michel Friedman, Erich Böhme and Lothar Späth and guests such as Angela Merkel, Edzard Reuter and Harald Schmidt expanded my knowledge immensely. The sharp minds responsible for "Frontal21" (ZDF) and "Fakt" (ARD) taught me, as an investigative journalist, more on communicating effectively. An excellent training on how to translate complex matters into an understandable format was my work as a TV and print journalist, explaining the world as science sees it for "Wunderwelt Wissen" (ProSieben) and reporting on arts and culture for Spiegel Online.
To be able to understand complex thoughts and communicate them effectively, I studied Philosophy, German Literature, Journalism and Film in Germany, France and Canada. I wrote my master's thesis on John Rawls' concept of justice and fairness at the Freie Universität of Berlin.
Last but not least: I feel comfortable in different cultural contexts. I grew up in Canada and Germany; my native languages are German and English.
I'm an optimist and enjoy looking ahead. Innovative ideas, good questions and controversial views motivate me to seek the spotlight together with my clients. And of course, I love working with people and am very much looking forward to meeting you.
