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!

The Higher Purpose Pitch

October 2020. I teamed up with team-building expert Tobias Rodrigues to bring a new special product to you – the Higher Purpose Pitch. Why? Do people feel your company culture? Do people live your company culture? How many of your employees know why they show up every morning? The Higher Purpose Pitch is an opportunity to make your company culture and, as the endgame, the higher purpose you serve touch people. More info.

Co-Creating the Next Generation of Mittelstand

October 2020. Millennials were the first to turn their back on companies without a meaningful purpose. Generation Z will be even more critical. Neither Millennials nor Generation Z will have any issue with Berlin-based maschinenraum.io. Initiated by Max Viessmann, Co-CEO of Viessmann Group, Maschinenraum is a meeting place for the German Mittelstand, a hub of innovation and inspiration. The Maschinenraum is all about co-creating. As we did. The management team and I had two amazing days of personal growth. But, apart from the usual super boost of rhetoric and charisma, this particular training was one of the best bonding experiences I have witnessed in 11 years and three months.
