Every day I meet new people with great ideas, products, knowledge, and stories. But when I see them presenting, I see people that can’t leverage their own, their company’s and their products’ great potential because they are bad at presenting. And, unfortunately, most people are really bad at presenting.

I can no longer stand to see great minds waste their potential because they can’t transform their great ideas into great presentations and speeches.

I’m an executive, entrepreneur and venture capitalist. I’m exposed to each kind of business presentation every day. And I also perform each kind of presentation every day – from an internal stand-up to a board meeting to a 5,000 person keynote. I’m a Managing Director/General Manager at Samsung NEXT Europe, I led Microsoft ScaleUp as MD/CEO covering Continental Europe, and I’m a Venture Partner for EQT Ventures, one of Europe’s largest Venture Capital Funds. I’ve developed a presentation framework that is not just theory, but directly applicable to every day of your business life – no matter if you’re working for a corporation, a startup or if you’re a student or scientist, no matter if you want to present internally, do a sales pitch, do a VC pitch or present your research.
