During individual training, we will work on your current presentations or speeches. The program will be tailored 100% to your needs, and you will select the areas that we will cover.

General rules

Duration and frequency

Meetings last 60 minutes. We set the frequency individually. Usually, sessions are held every 1-2 weeks for the best results. I care about making the client independent and showing the tools that will make him cope on his own in the future, without my help.

First meeting

How can you be sure that I will be the right coach for you? You can dispel such doubts at the first meeting, the so-called contract session where we both decide whether we want to work together. The first session is free of charge, it lasts 30 minutes and takes place via one of the communicators, eg Meet, Zoom, Skype. During this meeting, we get to know each other, briefly discuss the principles of our work, your goal and set the rules, and then we move on to the coaching session.

Ethical standards

At work, I follow the Coach’s Code of Ethics according to the standards of the International Coach Federation. Before starting the coaching process, I will ask you to familiarize yourself with it. Everything we talk about is completely confidential, and you are guaranteed that I will not disclose it anywhere. Trust and a sense of client safety are very important to me.


I work mainly in the online formula. We can connect through any application. This saves you time traveling and connecting to a meeting from anywhere in the world. The available technology allows you to conduct a meeting with the same result as in real life. If you want to see if this form suits you, arrange a free consultation. If you want to meet in person, it’s possible. I can commute to your office in the area of Zurich and Winterthur.

Who am I working with?

I work with people regardless of their level of advancement. I can support you in preparing for your first presentation at school or perfecting your speech at a conference for a thousand people or an interview on TV. I have experience in working with clients who work in business on a daily basis, as well as with academic lecturers and artists. Individual training in public speaking needs your involvement, and this is my only entry criterion to start working with a client.

She gained knowledge of business, sales, business etiquette, and the latest standards from her studies at the Warsaw School of Economics. Furthermore, she has extensive experience from working in a corporation and successfully running her own companies. Recently, she has given many interviews on television, press, and radio, which reinforced in her mind the significance of self-confidence and self-presentation skills in front of a camera.

She completed postgraduate studies in coaching, an advanced course in business coaching, and several dozen training courses in soft skills.

She has performed at countless concerts and festivals. For many years she has worked to overcome the stage fright that kept her awake at night, and today, supported by her experience and knowledge, she can help other people overcome the same fear.

The fourth pillar of activity is TEDxZurich, in which she acts as Head of Speakers. She prepares speakers for their unforgettable speeches and designs their preparation process. So far, she has provided substantive support to speakers from several editions.

Opinions of my clients about individual workshops in public speaking in Zurich

Magda is great! Really like working with her. Thanks to Magda I was able to move to the next level of my presentation skills.– Piotr, Head of Poland Germany i EMEA
Magda was my coach for TEDx conference. She managed to give profound inputs concisely which dramatically improved my talk. The feedback and interaction were incredibly efficient and pleasant. Thank you!– Quentin Lecturer, PostDoc reasercher
Magda has been a great source of knowledge, and more importantly – she’s done exceptionally well at sharing her expertise in the form of practical advice and training. Throughout the last few months, I grew from a hopeless amateur to a promising up-and-comer in public speaking craft, and I can see the difference in how I’m speaking and how the audience perceives me. My friends even said I’m now much better at giving toasts – if it’s not the recognition of progress, I don’t know what is!– Vlad, Business Development Executive
