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.

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.

Magda Kern public speaking trainer in Zurich

I have a unique combination of experience and education in many disciplines that help me comprehensively prepare clients for speeches. I gained knowledge of business, sales, business etiquette, and the latest standards from the studies at the Warsaw School of Economics. Furthermore, I have extensive experience from working in a corporation and successfully running my own companies. In total, I gave more than 150 interviews on television, press, and radio, which reinforced in my mind the significance of self-confidence and self-presentation skills in front of a camera.

The second pillar is psychology and coaching. I’m a psychologist, a certified UW trainer, and a PCC coach accredited by the International Coach Federation. I completed postgraduate studies in coaching, an advanced course in business coaching, and several dozen training courses in soft skills.

The third pillar is stage activity. I was performing in the Cuban musical “Conoce mi Cuba.” I studied the cello in the first-degree music school and later in the second-degree jazz vocal class. I have performed at countless concerts and festivals. For many years, I have worked to overcome the stage fright that kept me awake at night, and today, supported by my experience and knowledge, I can help other people overcome the same fear.

The fourth pillar of activity is TEDxZurich, where I’m Head of Speakers. I prepare speakers for their unforgettable speeches and design their preparation process. So far, I provided substantive support to more than 30 speakers over 6 years. In 2021, I was chosen as one of the top 11 public-speaking coaches worldwide 2021, according to the Coach Foundation ranking.

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
opinie Magdalena Fialkowska
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
