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.
