A Berlin based conferences curator and speakers' coach. Or to put it even better a curator of ideas. 

For the past couple of years I've worked as a speaker coach and a Curation Assistant at TED, and have helped hundreds of speakers prepare the talks for several other events around the world. I'm one of those people who, in the torrent of ideas and information, tries to filter, structure and connect what's relevant, and give it a stage. My main goal is to make sure speakers are communicating their message clearly and effectively to the public; from drafting the talk together to the final presentation and stage performance. My approach in curating talks is content based. If you're a speaker, I'll help you write and tell your story,  communicate your idea and connect with your audience. When it comes to larger conferences, I may assist you in the overall curation of the program and in hosting the event. 

I have an ongoing collaboration with YPO, working with speakers for the annual GLC and EDGE conferences. I've worked with BAYER, Deutsche Telekom, Slovak Telekom and Detecon, among others. 

In order to bring a more creative and innovative character both within the board meetings and the executive conferences, I organize customized workshops on public speaking. I work with individuals on a one-to-one coaching as well as with groups, like the Gates Cambridge Scholars, YPO chapters, organizations and start up companies worldwide. Here's an example of what's going on in these workshops.

When I'm not working on a speaker's draft, you'll find me making photos. And here are a few photos of me while at work.
