Michael Geerdts (external partner)

It is impossible, not to communicate – says Paul Watzlawick. But nonetheless our school system  never told us how to present and talk convincingly. This is why Michael helps business people since 2006:


  1. to speak in front of large groups
  2. to cut to the core value
  3. to ask better questions thus selling your idea better
  4. to create an work environment, where personal and team goals will be surpassed
If it´s not fun, what´s the point?

His workshop participants love his ability to convey valuable information in a playful way, according to the motto: ‘If it’s not fun, what’s the point?’. He is authentic, hands-on, practical, straight forward and appraised for his ability to get to the heart of constructive feedback.
