2. to think of a topic they might want to turn into a talk and collect ideas ready to work with
- Day 1 morning – Session 1 and 2
This part focusses on common anxieties around speaking in public and in particular on speaking in another language. Using powerful coaching techniques and reflections from pre-workshop preparation, participants will explore their own perceptions, gain new insights into the nature of their anxieties and learn to use these to their advantage.
- Day 1 afternoon – Session 3 and 4
When people show up, they create impact. Participants will explore some fundamental qualities of successful public speaking and discover that they all possess these qualities already to some degree. Participants will explore key principles on how to focus on their key idea and how to build powerful talks that are of value for their audience.
- Preparation for Day 2 (at home)
Participants apply what they have learned and start to build a talk, ready to be worked on the following day.
- Day 2 morning – Session 5 and 6
Participants will refine their talks, adding variety and stretching further into their personal range as speakers. They will explore ways to make their talks more memorable and themselves unforgettable. They will also begin to memorise their talks.
- Day 2 afternoon – Session 7 and 8
Participants present for 3-4 minutes and get feedback from trainers and peers.

I signed up as a TEDx speaker with limited public speaking experience, mostly giving dry Powerpoint talks at industry conferences. The experience was intense, at times overwhelming, but when it was all said and done, one of the most memorable experiences of my life. Klaus’ coaching was incredible and a big part of the joy in the experience. He helped me with my storytelling, delivery, and most importantly, my confidence. Giving my talk was so rewarding and I’m so grateful to have worked with Klaus.

Klaus-Dieter’s expertise as a speakers’ coach was invaluable. He nurtured very strong relationships with our speakers and helped them turn their ideas worth spreading into authentic and powerful TEDx talks. Working with Klaus-Dieter, speakers felt safe to dive into an intense and very personal journey of self-exploration and to experiment with their ideas. Thanks to his coaching techniques, speakers learned how to embrace their vulnerabilities, connect to their true selves and write their best talks.
