Public speaking training for scientists, IT, and engineers. Why do they need that?
In mid-September, I had the pleasure of conducting a public speaking workshop in Basel for PhD students during the Conference ECOC Exhibition, the largest optical communications exhibition in Europe. We talked about how to gesticulate, move on the stage, manage stress, work with a microphone, build an interesting presentation structure, create an appealing multimedia presentation, and what is the best manner of speaking.
Is it worth learning public speaking skills?
And yes, scientists, engineers and programmers should learn how to present. Really often, they don’t learn public speaking during their studies. In the end, they have many incredible discoveries to share with people.
🔸 The way how they deliver speech influences the perception of their findings.
🔸 A good presentation can captivate the audience’s attention.
🔸 It also can help to digest the content for a non-expert audience.

Hi. Welcome to my blog 🙂 I’m a psychologist and public speaking trainer. I work as a trainer and Head of Speakers at TEDxZurich. I also help, among others, lawyers, vocalists, actors, lecturers and business people in preparation for their speeches in front of hundreds of people in the audience, as well as in conducting small meetings or presentations. For many years I worked on controlling the stage fright that kept me awake at night. I was singing and dancing in a Cuban musical. I have always wondered how to manage the internal critic, not to worry about the opinion of others, and how to build a real sense of confidence on stage. Now I know the answer.
Recently, I have given countless interviews, which made me aware of the importance of confidence in front of the camera. Having been involved in music since the age of 10, I know how stressful it can be to present to a wider audience. By combining my business and music experience, I can guide you through the process of changing direction towards your dreams. Based on my vast stage experience, I have gained the ability to provide adequate tools and methods of coaching that will support your development. In 2021 I was chosen as one of the top 11 public-speaking coaches worldwide 2021, according to the Coach Foundation ranking.
