The Speech Trainer

As a Speech- and Media-Trainer my credo is: What you say is important. The way you say it is crucial to success!
This applies to people of all target groups, with whom I have been working for more than twenty years…


…Moderators/Presenters and speakers in radio and television stations, who want to provide their audience with precise information and captivate them by creating precise mood and tension.


…Editors in publishing companies, who want to speak their podcasts convincingly, who want to speak coherently a comment on their videos,


… Authors, who not only want to read out the text of their books, but also want to fill them with life or


…Managers, executives and employees of national and international corporations, who want to communicate clearly and confidently.



What many people do not know - everyone can improve their speaking skills, can strengthen their personal power of expression and improve their charisma when speaking. For me it is always an exciting process, to discover and experience these resources - the power of breath, voice and body expression with the associated emotions - and make them actively usable for the respective person.

Inspire your audience by means of personal expression!


You work for a radio or TV station, you are faced with the ever-new challenge, to inspire listeners or viewers, to inform them, to entertain and keep them connected to your radio- or TV-program!


"Stay tuned!“ This phrase is the most popular transition to the news program or to commercials. Yet it is usually an almost desperate plea from presenters and speakers. But what is the "secret" that keeps us tuned for some moderators, presenters and speakers, that we literally “turn off” at others?


It is the quality of personal expression and charisma that fascinate us - the emotional impulses, that sound through body posture and movement, through gestures and facial expression, through breathing, voice tone, intonation and pronunciation. When these are consistent with what we say, we are more likely to be convinced and inspired by the content of the message.


You too can significantly improve your personal charisma when speaking. You will succeed to create precise mood and tension using your voice and body language and captivate your audience. So that no one “turns off” after a few sentences...


My training approach includes your entire personality. Voice is – in combination with body posture and movement, gestures and facial expression, breathing and pronunciation – more than just an organ for transmitting information. Voice reflects our personality and our state of mood: „Speak, so I may see you!“ (Socrates).


Your training progress will soon take effect - assuming you practice regularly and with perseverance:


  • You go with intention and good body tension on-air before you start speaking!
  • You have vital media-body language - even on the radio!
  • Your breath is fluent and not to be heard aloud while speaking!
  • You can influence the sound and modulation of your voice!
  • You articulate clearly and naturally!
  • You cope with respiratory and voice stress!
  • You gain confidence in speaking!
  • You have the power of imagination and you are focused on your (imaginary!) listener / viewer!
  • You think and sense every word you say,

    - instead of just reading out a script!

    - instead of using speech stereotypes!

  • You accompany your words with attentiveness until they reach their goal and… you wait for the echo you evoke - that is what makes pauses exciting!


Let my offer convince you and become an earwig and eye catcher!

Leadership by means of personal expression


It is part of your job to express yourself clearly and unequivocally, to convince business partners and clients through speech or presentation, to make a supremely good impact in front of a camera and microphone.


„No problem – my message is perfect“ - OK then! But is that enough to master these tasks?


Imagine - you hold a speech to your employees at the beginning of the new financial year. Your company has had a difficult year, but it has been going uphill for a few months now. You want to communicate this positive mood to your employees - and you want to emphasize the "togetherness" and the "positive view forward". This culminates in the emotional and motivating words: "Let us now look positively into a common future!“. Well said! Nevertheless, as you speak, you feel that the spark does not skip - why not ?! You're tense, which makes your voice tight and your facial expression hard,
the words you say, are emotional and positive, but you speak them as if you were reading them from a kind of inner teleprompter. Last but not least, you mention the "positive future" you want to look into together, and your eyes focus on your manuscript instead of your audience ...


All of this creates emotional distance and your employees hear your words, but do not trust them because:


If body and voice send out signals, which are not consistent with the verbal and emotional message, we tend to believe the body- and voice-signals more than the words that are said!


So make sure, your vocal and visual signals support your words. Then can you be sure that your message gets across and the emotional spark leaps over.


What many people do not know - voice and body language can be trained individually. You too can strengthen your personal expressiveness and sustainably improve your charisma when speaking.


My training approach includes your entire personality.


The aim of the training is, to (re)discover the joy of expressing oneself, to be able to argue reliably in every situation with a clear voice and keep the other person in suspense.


Your training progress will soon take effect - assuming you practice regularly and with perseverance:


  • your posture is upright and alert
  • your gestures and facial expression are vital, consistent with your feelings and attitudes
  • your breath is fluent and not to be heard aloud while speaking
  • your voice is clear, sonorous and tuneful
  • your articulation is clear, easy to understand and natural


When you have improved all this, your power of expression will be stronger than it was before, your self-assurance will be raised - even in situations of high tension - and your presence will increase, be it in a personal conversation, in a presentation in front of a large audience or in front of a microphone or
a camera.This allows you to establish a lively, purposeful contact with your conversation partner.
