I will make you bring out the best in your voice.

My passion for acting, singing and literature led me to study Speech Arts and Speech Training at the State University for Music and Performing Arts Stuttgart. After finishing my studies in 1998 I have been working as a trainer and speech coach for numerous national and multinational corporations, teaching employees, managers and executives how to use their voice effectively and how to speak and deliver their speeches in a convincing and confident manner.

I regularly train radio announcers and TV hosts and presenters such as the Tagesschau and Tagesthemen newsreaders. At universities for music and performing arts I work with actors and singers on voice, expression and performance. Besides training others I also work as a speaker myself, doing documentary narration and voice over, reading audio books and commercials. Using my extensive experience in working with a wide variety of professionals – journalists, speakers, managers, employees and artists - I am able to offer you a unique combination of effective exercises, which will quickly help you achieve significant improvement and guarantee lasting results.

Speech Training

Everyone can speak - but how do we come across? Do people like to hear you talk, are they listening, can you hold their attention? Do you transmit self-confidence and inspiration? Are you able to present your message clearly and efficiently?

For many this is not an easy thing to do. But it can be learned. We all can improve our voice, our speaking skills, even our entire presence.

Learn how to speak in a relaxed and convincing manner, how to hold your listeners’ attention – be it in front of a large audience, in a meeting, over the phone or in a personal conversation. Specific customized exercises will help you develop your speaking skills as we work on your voice, articulation, breathing and body language. Supported by my continuous feedback, these exercises guarantee fast results and lasting success. I offer individual and group voice coaching in English and in German across Europe.
