We all know the feeling. You’re in the car on the way home, or in elevator on the way out of the meeting. As the elevator drops, your stomach drops too.
“Why did I stutter?” “How could I have forgotten to say that?” “Why did I tell that story?”
Suddenly it’s crystal clear what you should have said, when in the moment the words were just out of reach.

I have helped world renowned researchers concisely explain what they’re working on at the world’s leading universities. From studies on the brains of zebrafish to cryptocurrencies to teenage anxieties. I’ve turned methods and discussions into compelling narratives.
I’ve prepped speakers for TED Talks and taught startups how to sell their visions, from solar roofs to oral hygiene.
I’ve helped managers hone their messages of change at large commercial companies looking to connect their employees to their customers or revamp their workflow. From HR to digitalization, I’ve brought stories to countless industries.
Together, we’ll learn how to get an audience to look up at you with a sparkle in their eye, instead of rolling their eyes. I’m all about practical tips. From the beginning of the workshop, you will already start to notice a difference in your skills.
Whether you need that “wow” pitch, that perfect lecture, or the winning interview, don’t do it alone. Together we can formulate the most precise and effective story.
I work with lecturers until they cross the finish line. They will be engaging, articulate and ready. They might even surprise themselves.

That adrenaline, that momentum, that fear, those are our secret weapons. Learn how to use them.
