Presentation Coaching

Or, as I like to phrase it: I help people express and present their ideas.

I have successfully coached TEDx speakers, startups, and people with a background in technology and IT (which I happen to share and for whom I wrote Presenting for Geeks). As such, I have a lot of experience expressing complex issues as simple as possible (but not simpler).

I'm available for one-on-one coaching (in German and English) for your next all-important presentation as well as for presentation courses specifically crafted for your and your team's needs.

Smart Pens And Their Use For Brainstorming

Posted by

For my second ebook, Brainstorming Your Presentation, I was looking into the various smart pens (or digital pens) that are available on the market to see if they could help me with the problem of taking my presentation drafts with me.

I tried out quite a few of these pens - with varying degrees of success - but in the end decided to cut most of the details out of the book again, as they were distracting from the book's focus. Since the information could be of interest to potential buyers of these pens, I'd like to publish it here instead.

"I want to hear that talk"

We're in the process of looking for speakers for our next TEDxStuttgart; and, as always, it's a mixture of frustration and delight. Frustration because of the huge amount of very weak proposals we get. Which only increases the delight when we find someone who actually has something to say.

Unravelling a TED talk

The motto of TED, as you surely know, is "ideas worth spreading". The idea - revolutionary, evolutionary, novel, or just a new take on something long established - is at the heart of every TED talk. All else must stand back.

Turn around for a fresh look

There's a nice park near the place where I live, so I occasionally (though not often enough, I guess), I go there for a walk. Due to the park's location and layout, I always end up going around it in the same direction. It has enough variation in terms of smaller sideways and alternative routes, but I've always been going on my round counter-clockwise without thinking much about it.

The other day, on a whim, I decided to walk my usual route the other way around. Which resulted in me coming up to corners and pathways and wondering where I was - until I recognised that I was in a familiar spot that only looked unfamiliar since I was looking at it from a different direction.
