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 vulnerability, more authenticity, more charisma, more connection–is the destination. In the end, you grow in a way you never imagined.

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