Frank is a communication professional – there is no doubt about that. But he is also didactically very strong: Through his training, Frank improved my performance with simple "nudges" even in front of large groups. Situations that were uncomfortable for me are now less uncomfortable and sometimes even a little fun. I enjoyed learning from Frank and gladly accepted his feedback during the numerous practical exercises because he created a constructive and positive learning atmosphere. Conclusion: Great training, great guy, full recommendation!

Hi Frank, 

Thanks a lot for two unique and inspiring days.

 

This was a hands-on, super helpful and amazing experience. I already used several of the techniques we learned, from storytelling to progressive muscle relaxation (and more) and feel confident that my presentation and storytelling-skills will keep growing in a faster pace after our sessions. Now I know what to focus on to further develop my skills.

 

Again, thank you!

"I have never felt so confident and safe during a communication training. An interactive and proactive training with fun exercises that I learned a lot from!"

“Frank Behnke gifted the entire group a sweet taste of the art of feeling comfortable with the uncomfortable! He customized the dynamics - as ridiculous as those may seem - to fit each participant’s style, personality and own challenges. Frank pushed every one of us to our own limits making us realize ourselves what we are capable of doing. He also made sure we understood the reason and use behind each dynamic for us to apply in our daily personal and professional lives. I have not ever before learned so much and enjoyed a communication training as I enjoyed this one. I 100% recommend to enroll in his trainings.”

“The best communication training I had ever! Unlike the other trainings, it doesn’t ask me to act as someone else, but to be myself, just try to find the deeper part of myself. And it’s a lot of fun!

It’s a course I would highly recommended, not only for communication training, but also for team buildings. After the training, the whole team in the course are integrated.”

“Thank you for the excellent and inspiring training last week. I’m already working to integrate what I learned into my daily work. You also taught me a lot about myself. I’d love to stay in touch.”

“To quote Fontane, “That is a broad subject.” Frank Behnke has his training participants deliver their presentations with and then without their PowerPoint slides. He then let us use our PowerPoints again, and the results were amazing. Presentation developers like iPointing certainly make your slides look good, but even the best-looking slides aren’t much help if you don’t know what you want to say or how to say it. What really helped me: - Structuring your content (I highly recommend the pyramid principle from Minto) - Invest in format templates and tools like Think-Cell and Efficient Elements - Make a point of listening to really good speakers – they’re able to give you a visual without PowerPoint slides. Oh yes, and this: PowerPoint has never saved a poorly prepared speech.”

“Thank you for the two days of training on Mallorca. Your Top-Talent Training "Boost your Appearance” offers incredible benefits for everyone, for both professional and personal situations. Your approach – opening new perspectives, generating excitement, and drawing participants out of our shells – is phenomenal. I highly recommend your course, thanks to your charming, witty personality and wealth of experience. The impact and applicability to everyday situations far exceeded my expectations. I hope we’ll have more opportunities to train with you. Thank you.”

"The pleasure and benefits were all mine, I struggle to find a course in my past that had a greater positive impact; I will relay this to other potential beneficiaries. It is good to be connected and to know where to get professional support in case of key events and speeches." Best regards, Jasper

„Thank you. That is an amazing training, not only the training method, but also the result. At first I am embarrassed by the video, but at the end of the day, I feel comfortable and love the video. It is valuable for everyone.”

„Good practice for presentation skills and architecture. That would be better if we focus on concrete topic, such as Expertise in Industrial Network. Thanks.”

“My vote is 1,000% to offer this next T&S conference. The instructor methods were good, his style of teaching very good and the way he interacted with us exceptional. He has a skill to provide feedback in a positive manner which is commendable.”

“Many thanks for the Presence and Performance Workshop. I found it refreshing and motivating – there were many elements at our daily work that I recognized that can be made better. The workshop was in an enthusiastic way and I can recommend it strongly to my colleagues.”

IRINA IBARROLA

“I found that this workshop was very useful, since you not only learn to plan the presentation correctly and plan the story to send the messages we want our public to receive, but also to get and maintain the public’s attention as well as to learn to present an act to the public to enhance your performance on stage. I would recommend it for all of our PSD colleagues, as well as sales specialist and Marketing Promotion to help us have a better “Story” on our marketing material and videos. Thank you very much for inviting me to the Workshop!”

“It was really a useful training because of trainer expertise and his skills to train us with a coaching approach completely worthwhile. I’ve done similar trainings in the past, but they were more oriented on explanation of basic rules for public speaking. This was the first training where I could really practice and improve the efficiency of performance on stage (where and how to move, use tone of voice, manage breaks and keep audience engagement).”

“This workshops brings to us an all-new way of Presentation; right from structuring your presentation to the delivery. This approach helps you further enhance your connect with the audience and deliver a powerful presentation.”
