- Katja has a no nonsense approach to communication business. Katja does not waste words. She understands communication and the power of what is said. She knows how vital her role as coach & trainer is; as communication can make or break a business. To deliver the right message that brings them to the winning side.
- To communicate well, think about using a different communication style to your own.
- Successful keynotes can sometimes be about simply helping people get in touch with what they already know and showing them how to utilize it.
- Katja designs with her clients talks that way: Get a concept, a thesis, an idea. It can be as small as a tweet. Test lines and ideas on anyone you know to see if the idea resonates. Once she has 10-12 one-liners, she puts them in order in order to form a body of her talk. She then looks for research about each point and places them under each point in her notes. The talks then build themselves.
- Make sure your words, spoken or written, resonation in a way that your audience can be an ambassador for what you have said and written.
- “Virtual” public speaking requires you to be more of a presenter who can talk to people in the room BUT also to the audience watching you passively online.
- Think, “how can I make this talk quotable”. What phrases do I want my audience to leave the room still thinking and saying?
- When talking to corporations they want to achieve things by the end of your talk. Simply “talking” is not enough. They want results.
- When working out your talk, ask yourself, “how am I going to ease your pain?”
