Moving people. Transforming companies.

Speaker coaching with the
TED formula

Transformation will only happen if you know how to move people. Authentic communication is the key to that.

Inspiring stories
Authentic talks
Ambassadors of
transformation

Making announcements does not change a thing.

It is not enough to announce transformation in info mails or presentations. Today’s leaders must be able to talk about transformation in an authentic and understandable way. In closed circles of their teams, on big stages and in front of the camera. 

Many executives feel uncomfortable in this speaking role and try to avoid these situations.

No one reads

impersonal info mails

No one understands

overloaded presentations

No one is moved

by objective speeches

Empower your leaders to become ambassadors of transformation.

Inspiring stories

stick in your mind

Bold performances

win people over

Authentic leaders

move people

Every transformation has a story.
We help you tell yours.

In ten years of hosting TEDx events, we’ve trained more than 500 people to take the stage. 

None of them were born speakers. But they knew the elements that make a good story great – and how to tell that story authentically. Let us do the same for your executives. 

Initiating change in companies is hard.

You need leaders who know how to move their teams to abandon well-rehearsed routines and trustingly follow them into the unknown.“

Executives need support

Digitalization and the pandemic presented companies with major challenges in terms of transformation. Many managers struggled communicating about these transformations effectively. Yet that is exactly what’s expected from them. Leaders must be able to talk about necessary transformations in an authentic and understandable way – both in closed circles within their teams as well as on stage and in front of the camera.

Increased expectations placed on executives

The sudden focus on communication in leadership roles is a whole new challenge for many executives, one that they can only overcome with professional support.

New speaker role fuels insecurity and resistance

Many executives feel insecure in their new role as a spokesperson. Expectations are high. But they lack the tools and routine to speak confidently and authentically in front of an audience. That‘ s why they try to avoid this form of communication.

Other executives don’t see the need to change their communication style and go into resistance mode. In both cases, the result is the same: leaders do not embrace their communication role and continue to do business as usual.

Reaching people through personal, authentic communication 

It’s not enough to announce important transformations in info mails or presentations. Nor can you simply announce transformation.

If you want to change things in your company, you need leaders who can move people. Authentic, personal communication is the key to this.

Changes must not fail for lack of communication.

We know how difficult it is to initiate change in organizations. Sometimes it seems like fighting windmills.

Important transformations in companies must not fail because of poor communication by your executives.

We help executives develop their public speaking skills

That’s why we developed our speaker coaching based on the TED formula. In small groups, your executives learn how storytelling works and what elements make up a great TED Talk.

Together, they analyze successful presentations by others and learn to recognize and apply the individual elements in them.

At the end, your executives will prepare their own presentations, and deliver them in front of their coach and their fellow participants.

They will receive detailed feedback from their coach and participants and discover their personal speaker strengths.

No matter how fast your company needs to change in the future, your leaders have the communication skills to deliver that need for change and mobilize their teams.

What customers say

Stephan and his team did a fantastic job of training our board members to give TED-style talks. The feedback we received after delivering our TED style talks at our annual conference was fantastic. Now, our organization is eager for more!

Liam Condon
former CEO Bayer CropScience AG
Some executives were skeptical at first about what speaker coaching could do for them. The jump in quality their presentations made after just a few hours of coaching convinced them.



Martin Henn
Managing Director Henn GmbH
Three years ago, we would have had a hard time justifying speaker coaching for our entire leadership team. Today, executives are approaching us themselves because they see the importance of authentic communication to their leadership role.
