Florian’s keynote speech “The Ball Must Go In” was inspiring, groundbreaking, and offered many rhetorical insights that, without a doubt, will help us professionally. Many participants expressed their gratitude to me for having invited Florian and I believe that his performance, by far, exceeded the objective we had marked. It was such a powerful opening! Afterwards, many speakers made humorous callbacks to his “tips” in their talks. Thank you, Florian!
There's a before and an after Florian's Public Speaking trainings in ADP. In my +13 years in HR leadership I have hired more than 30 external trainers. Florian is the top 1 with most “10s” from participants I have ever seen. Why? Very simple… He isn't only passionate about speaking; he is even more passionate about seeing others grow, and that combined with his enormous generosity in sharing everything he knows with others makes him a MEMORABLE trainer!!!
During those two days of training I experienced a much wider range of strong emotions than I normally do during 2 months. Florian has a way of making you feel like there is nothing more important in the world than what goes on around you, here and now. I laughed a lot; I cried a lot and I learned A LOT!
This wasn't a training. This was an adventure.
"A seminar? Today?" As a fresh father I hadn't slept for days. I was done with the world. The only option: cancel the training. Thanks God I didn't! I will never forget the moment, when I entered the training room with tired eyes and a smiling Flo, full of energy, yelled at me: "You've got 10 minutes to prepare your first speech - go!" For me, those two days were full of energy and inspiration. Flo reanimated me - with tons of logos, ethos and pathos. He gave me the courage to show my emotions - something I had almost forgotten about in this cold world of numbers. He's right. Life is a hiking tour on a mountain without a peak. One of my most important stops was the participation in this seminar.
[...] A fantastic major achievement was the organization of a Spain wide Conference in Toledo, for all three of the Spanish Rotarian districts, which involved the participation of the President of Rotary International and many other Rotarian authorities and State officials. The Conference itself congregated 1000 persons. Florian's contribution to this event was regarded by all as one of the determining factors of success.
Florian has helped me become a better communicator on my climb with him to "the mountain without a peak". In my job I communicate more than 90% of the time, so his mentoring has an extremely high impact. I don't know any trainer with more energy.
Two days full of energy is the best description I can think of. Florian's brutal but charming honesty secured a steep learning curve without ever taking it too far. I have rarely seen people opening up and experimenting this much in a two day training and that made the time invested even more valuable. To me, the personal way of teaching and the opportunity for the participants to show emotions, share stories and connect is yet another benefit of the training. That way we really got to know each other and whenever I see one of my fellow companions at work, I just have to smile.
I've seen individuals opening up like they never did before, and literally transform in two days. And with all the groups our company sent it was always the same story. Thanks to Florian's authenticity, energy, and passion to make people better, it constantly results in the same conclusions: "Amazing!", "Incredible!", "Awesome!", "I will use the training for all my life!".
Florian is an extraordinary speaker who energized all our 120 managers during his speech within our Danone Leadership Summit! Although he explained to us in a very convincing way that an audience normally stops paying attention after 8 seconds, we all were magnetized until the very last second! He´s a great, funny, spontaneous and entertaining guy - thank you very much for being with us!
After several years of sharing experiences with Florian, I’ve learned that he’s one of those people able to create the right environment to make you act, to get you to the start line and to make you face your limits. Moreover, he provides the right feedback to make you interiorize what you experienced. It’s not only about fun or excitement; it’s about changing and keeping that change with you. Thanks Florian for all your effort and great advice. This year at IESE has been another new wonderful experience.
Florian struck a very important chord at our international conference. Accountants have great messages to deliver and simply need the confidence, enthusiasm and comfort being slightly outrageous to make a difference through informing, motivating and entertaining our audience. Thank you Florian for sharing your contagious enthusiasm for public speaking through your inspiring presentations and discussions!
In Panasonic we are passionate about innovation… That is why we loved Florian's seminars. He surprised us all with his endless positive energy, his unusual teaching methods, his passion and wide experience in public speaking. Florian pushed us all way out of our comfort zone in a very gentle way. His positive, constructive feedback was so precise and so powerful (even without a video camera!) that we will remember this seminar forever. Thank you very much for a great experience.
Florian radiates an incredible energy. An energy that lets people, who are about to collapse from stage-fright, release their hand brake and speak up. A contagious energy that makes seminar participants prepare their following speeches with eagerness. An energy that infected all of us and let us experience a fantastic development within those two training days. We experienced two very special days with very special speeches and four "crazy" final presentations. Thanks!
The unexpected experiment of going through two days of emotions, joy and lots of laughter with people I had never seen before and the leadership shown by Florian in the whole process was among the most thrilling moments I had in 2017! I will never be able to thank Florian enough for it.
Two very good educational and inspiring days. Florian is pleasantly “crazy”; he’s highly competent and knows how to motivate and energize all seminar participants. Great guy, great training - Thank you!
Florian surprised us all. As a group of seasoned teachers and highly experienced trainers, we were a tough crowd to convince. I don’t think Florian knew what he was getting himself into! His style was electric and disruptive, immediately surprising us and taking us out of our comfort zones. What’s surprising is the collective and overall impact those 2 days (2 DAYS! Not 2 months or 2 years) can have on a bunch of seriously proficient professionals. I can only describe it as pure magic. We came away a stronger team with a new and fresh slant to our presentation skills. We learned that less is more and were able to immediately apply our new found approach to presenting in our annual global conference, which turned out to be the best one we ever had.
I had already attended several communication trainings where I always learned something. But the learning experience with Florian topped it all! He helped us with clear techniques and ideas on how to revolutionize our public speaking and to rethink what we considered “good communication”. The whole training is based on practical exercises and you can feel your progress directly on the spot. I can highly recommend Florian’s training.
Everything is communication; public speaking is just an excuse. Learning how to communicate and persuade is part of the essence of everything we do every day. The training with Florian turned out to be the most transformational experience we have had in Acceso. We cried, we laughed, we learned - in the end, we put in practice the wisdom of Aristotle. Having Florian with us meant a before and an after for us at Acceso.
We were and we are inspired by Florian’s perpetual presence from beginning to end. We are inspired by his enthusiasm and his unconditional emotional and personal involvement with every single one of us. We are inspired by Florian’s seemingly endless positive energy which drove us to do unimaginable things. Technically and humanely outstanding – Florian made us all gain more authority, more credibility and more self-confidence. In the name of our entire management team I’d like to thank Florian for a seminar experience which was extraordinary in every sense.
To describe Florian’s workshops as “speech seminars” would be a misleading understatement. In Barcelona we did not only improve our public speaking skills, but experienced two days full of positive thinking and energy. Definitely the best seminar I ever attended. Needless to say: Barcelona as a venue is a total fit!
Florian's training is an experience that changes the way you perceive yourself on stage. I used his structure and techniques in a presentation at the largest conference on product management in Europe. The result exceeded any expectations! A dozen people lined up for questions after the talk, and I received congratulations via LinkedIn for a few days after the event. Thanks Flo!
The love for what one does, the love to create, the attitude towards individuality – Florian Mueck has proven these qualities. Many thanks for a perfectly trained and motivated team! Where rhetoric and teambuilding are concerned – this is our understanding of the pursuit of perfection.
Two magical days, full, intense, with mixed emotions, but the most effective days spent. With his positive and effervescent way Florian managed to make me cry, laugh and learn a lot and with pleasure, and have fun with my colleagues and know them better. Thanks to Flo, I will have the same passionate speeches but much more structured, well prepared in advance, spiced up with stories and humor. And the presentations will finally have a lot of “power in the point”. Flo is not a trainer, he is THE trainer!
I want to summarize the experience of working with Florian in three aspects: positive energy, unexpected and inspiration. First, positive energy. Florian's one of the most positive persons I've ever met. He drives his trainings with all this positive energy. Furthermore, I learned how to be even more positive (PlusPlus). Believe me, the results are great! [...] If you want to experience positive energy, learn beyond your expectations, and be inspired, Florian is your man.
The impact that the training had on our group's public speaking skills is simply amazing! Florian creates an energetic and positive environment where participants feel confident to stretch their limits and challenge themselves. I was surprised to experience how a training that I expected to be quite “technical” resulted in a very emotional one, that helped to strengthen the boundaries within the team and get to know each other at a deeper level. Thanks Florian for a very inspiring day, the whole team is enthusiastic about it!
After 5 seconds we were surprised. After 60 seconds we were hooked. After 5 minutes we put down our smart phones. Florian's vibrant personality and exciting content impressed us. He's empathetic, competent, concrete and authentic - a true top speaker!
Florian is a spectacular speech trainer. He is a master of the material, extremely good at bringing out the best in people and getting them to confront their own inhibitions, and incredibly funny and engaging and utterly effective. I was sad to see the second day end, but I have been enjoying the outcome of his training on me and my colleagues ever since. Highly recommended!
We had two days with Flo – and they were amazing, entertaining, exceptional, emotional, passionate and outside my comfort zone … BRILLIANT! This was definitely the best training I ever had in my professional career. Thank you so much.
Florian has brought back the PATHOS in my public speaking, enabling me to lead a 12,000 people family business into the next century!
Florian is a great inspirer who’s able to inject self-confidence in a matter of hours. His passion, energy and professionalism take you on an exciting, and at the same time fearful journey to the core of your deepest insecurities. I could’ve never imagined that a day with Florian would awaken in me the curiosity to overcome one of my biggest weaknesses, my fear of the audience. I’m convinced that we’ll take the chance to apply Florian’s techniques and advice in any given future rhetorical moment.
