“Obviously, some books seem to be written not to educate the reader,
but to show that the author was educated.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1749-1832

Converting factual scientific Lectures into an engaging Interaction

Some speakers seem to aim at drawing a complete picture of their entire work rather than transferring knowledge or interacting with the audience. Those presentations often disregard the most basic principles of rhetoric and good multimedia design. Simple features of fascinating body language are not employed either.

Nevertheless, great speakers like Steve Jobs, Benjamin Zander, Bill Gates, Guilia Enders, or Daniel Pink have proven that even scientific facts and figures can be presented in an engaging, inspiring, and personal way.

Working on your presentation: Executive Coaching


We invite you to download all the material used in the course. Your first assignment would then be to draft the outline of your presentation and to create the first version of your slide deck.

What are your most pressing issues that you like to solve with your new tools?

Coaching #1

In the first coaching session we will go through your outline and draft and jointly sharpen the strategy if necessary.

The goal is to create a “ready-to-go” task list to optimize your presentation with you.


You are now equipped to implement the strategy and aesthetic adjustments to your slides.

In this phase it is recommended to do some pre-tests with your friends and family.
  • Is the presentation already understandable?
  • What is the key message that your test-audience can grasp?
  • Do you experience obvious issues?
  • Are you able to present your story fluidly?

Coaching #2

Finally, you report the first results and we discuss what works well and what needs further adjustments.

Are there still any flaws in the continuity of your presentation or graphical impurities?

Eventually, we jointly fine-tune the choreography and analyze your personal presentation style in an online-meeting.
