As a public speaking coach, Klaus-Dieter Rossade combines the academic with the creative to take speakers to that place where they can hold an audience and win their trust. It is the place where people begin to lead through their speaking


I signed up as a TEDx speaker with limited public speaking experience, mostly giving dry Powerpoint talks at industry conferences. The experience was intense, at times overwhelming, but when it was all said and done, one of the most memorable experiences of my life. Klaus' coaching was incredible and a big part of the joy in the experience. He helped me with my storytelling, delivery, and most importantly, my confidence. Giving my talk was so rewarding and I'm so grateful to have worked with Klaus.

Klaus-Dieter’s expertise as a speakers’ coach was invaluable. He nurtured very strong relationships with our speakers and helped them turn their ideas worth spreading into authentic and powerful TEDx talks. Working with Klaus-Dieter, speakers felt safe to dive into an intense and very personal journey of self-exploration and to experiment with their ideas. Thanks to his coaching techniques, speakers learned how to embrace their vulnerabilities, connect to their true selves and write their best talks.
