About the Trainer – Mr. Michael Stahl

The training will not expose participants to unnecessary stress by pushing them to speak in front of a large audience. Instead, they will learn in a joyful and often humorous way. The seminar is an ideal combination of theory and practical exercises during which participants will practice a variety of aspects of a presentation piece by piece.
During the training, we will identify which of the resources participants are already implementing in their daily life – probably many more than expected – and how they can adapt their personal presentation style to the needs of different audiences. The training will focus in particular on the differences between typical European style and Asian style presentations and how to match the needs and requirements of each particular audience.
Additionally, the training will highlight the linkage between presentation and selling, as the business context often requires well-thought persuasion techniques to get a message across.
Nowadays, there are a variety of outdated and inefficient training methods that, despite their great intentions, take too much time to master. Therefore the trainer will use various daily life examples and case scenarios in combination with well-established training formats to enable seminar participants to make the needed changes when they return to work upon completing the course.
