So many training participants have told me the coolest thing ever: “Florian, you are the Jim Carrey of public speaking coaches.” I love it! But public speaking is only part of my work. Your benefit is the transformation you experience. Public speaking is the vehicle, but transformation–more self-confidence; more emotion; more vulnerability, more authenticity, more charisma–is the destination. In the end, you grow in a way you never imagined. Just like Jim did all his life.

More about me


Together with amazing growth experts like Conor Neill, Olivia Schofield, John Zimmer or Tobias Rodrigues, I can co-create with you course formats you couldn’t buy anywhere else – probably. For up to 150 participants! Only one challenge: our agendas. This requires time. The following annual event is a good example. One of my absolute highlights every year.


From 8-12 April 2019, Conor Neill, John Zimmer, Tobias Rodrigues, Tony Anagor, and I, once again, had the enormous pleasure and honor to work with 116 Executive MBAs at the top business school IESE in Barcelona. In the big room and in the small rooms we witnessed them face their fears and grow beyond their expectations. The cows turned into buffaloes.

Can Vulnerability Fail?

The other day I drove back from Barcelona to Bigues i Riells, our mountainous home village, 35 km in the north of Barcelona. My fiancée Rose was sitting next to me. As I was driving along the two-lane highway C-17, suddenly a four-wheeler passed us on the right lane… Beep, beep!! Did you cross the line?, Rose snapped at me. Of course not! Why is it always MY fault? Why do you never blame the others? Five kilometers later. Our untamed horses strolled back into the stable, peacefully. A couple of days passed. For many years, I could keep my feet out of the maze of interior temptation. But the four Swedish letters somehow know how to hunt me down again and again. Back to IKEA! This time for a big wardrobe. Back at home. The electric screwdriver of our friend Juan helps. At one point, the unavoidable happens. Something goes wrong. My inner voice screams, This is impossible! You

The DNA Of A Charismatic Leader

What do Carlota, Timo, Tony and Leonidas have in common? All four of them are charismatic leaders. But wait a minute, who the hell are Carlota, Timo and Tony? Richard Branson? Yes. Jeff Bezos? Yes. Oprah Winfrey? Definitely a big yes. But - when I think of great charismatic leaders, I don't have to look so far. Three of my heroes of charismatic leadership have been my friends for years. And they live and work in my direct surrounding. In Barcelona. Carlota Pi is the co-founder and Executive President of holaluz.com. The Holaluz guys are green natives; they are green energy rebels.

It Is Your Choice

I am guilty. You can point your finger at me. I do it too. I also talk about others. Talking about others must be a big part of our DNA. And no wonder. Imagine those days in those caves. No opera, no Netflix, no Barça games. Only some lame wall paintings. Stories told at the fireplace must have been the highlight of the day. And stories have always circled around characters. Let’s face it: We love to talk about others. But - is talking about others the only thing I can talk about? Or, even deeper: Has talking about others ever helped me to become a better person myself? Rhetorical questions need no answer. Since I started my professional speaking career in 2009, the group of people I spend most time with has morphed into a group of friends who are passionate about personal growth. Personal growth, by definition, cannot be a superficial topic. Personal growth forces you to know
