Speak Up with confidence online cursus start:








Find your own voice!

Learning to speak is learning to express who you really are, what you stand for and what your passion is.

Learning to speak is discovering what your mission is and learning to stand up for it.

Learning to speak up is standing up for yourself and having the courage to tell your story, to share your past, the pain, the sorrow, the loneliness. Because that is your gold, that has made you who you are today.

Learning to speak is passing on your story and the lessons you have learnt so that you can inspire others.

Learning to speak is having the courage to discover yourself.

Learning to speak is finding your voice again. That feeling is so liberating!

In this course, I will take you on a journey. Real speaking starts within you, the #howto helps you make it easier. For that, I have 5 modules with applicable tips for you. Know what you’re getting into! Speaking is addictive ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Tricks of the Trade

After almost 12 years as an international speaker and a TED talk, I will teach you all the tricks of the trade in this online training. We will talk about:

– the structure of a lecture;
– speaking without notes in your hand;
– the psychological impact of colour choices;
– make-up & clothing;
– how to make a good pitch;
– how to qualify for a TEDx and what it takes to do so.

I will also teach you all my tips, tools and techniques on using your voice and leveraging a stage for a performance with impact.

Being a good speaker is pure magic.

Touching your audience in a few words, humour at the right moment, playfully alternating with the content and concluding with the message you want to convey. All within 1 minute.

And doing it so well that the pitch and your message stick, so that you are addressed from all sides during the drinks afterwards. In a good way ๐Ÿ˜‰

That takes practice, practice and practice. But this can be accelerated by a touch of magic, setting pure intentions and thus opening up your words to more dimensions.

There is much more than meets the eye… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Speak up

This is the best and most complete online course I have ever created.

This training offers the complete basis for every speaker: from novice vloggers and the speech at grandma’s 80th, to the ambitious chairman of the day and training for Entrepreneurs. Each module expands your knowledge and skills and gives you practical tips and tools that you can put to use immediately. I have also added a module in which you learn how to become a paid speaker and what to look out for. And in a bonus module, we take a deep-dive into TEDx. From registration to pitch, everything so you can shine on that red dot. PLEASE NOTE: This entire course and the live weekend are in ENGLISH!

Creating Videos and more

Learn to speak like a PRO. For online and offline events, trainings, lectures and workshops. Create killer content for your own trainings, improve your teaching skills and yes, everything you learn here you can also use to make videos and podcasts for your own social media channels.

Whatever form you want to convey your words in, I’ll teach you to do it with Charisma, Fun and Sparkle.
