In 2009, I turned my biggest passion in life into a profession: public speaking. Over the years 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.

All programs are available in English, Spanish, and German language – both offline and online!

What’s New?

From Offline to Online

September 2020. Dallmer, German family-owned business and international quality leader in drainage systems, faced a challenge. Their communication has been offline since 1913. Their sales team loves to go into one-to-one meetings with plumbers and tilers and installers. Or, seminars with 120 people in the room – that’s where they play their passion cards best. Then came Corona… I had two fantastic online charisma training sessions with the sales team and leadership. Will they rock their online meetings now? Oh yes!

The Glossary: Charismatic Communication Decoded

August 2020. After 11 years of helping thousands of people in 15 countries to become more charismatic communicators, I decided to go open-source with my feedback patterns. This glossary contains 102 symbols, which fall into three categories: logos, ethos, and pathos. I’m looking forward to your comments, ideas, feedback. Check out The Glossary.

Saving the European Farmer

July 2020. Big news! As a pitch coach, I supported the Munich-based biotech start-up Bind-X in their process of acquiring EU funding for their growth strategy. With BioWeedControl, CEO Martin Spitznagel and his team have developed a state-of-the-art technology, 100% biological, that will help the European farmer to sustain beyond glyphosate, a herbicide that will be banned EU-wide on 15 December 2022. With a ROCS (Return on coaching spent) of 1,150 (815 plus success-based variables) this has been been, to date, my biggest success as a pitch coach. Congratulations, team Bind-X!

Always People First

July 2020. Some companies put their people first, always. Far away from their image brochures. They mean it, they take it seriously, they treasure their biggest treasure. Silk, the technology subsidiary of CaixaBank, the financial giant, is one of those companies. No wonder they collaborate with a people-centered consultancy like #AlwaysPeopleFirst. Thanks to those guys, thanks to Nando, I could give two webinars for the Silk team. It was great fun with lots of questions, answers and hunger for more. Do you put your people first? Always?
