Answers to your questions

How is this different from other speaker training courses?

1. no blah-blah, but real results

We want to see you on the stages of this world. What does it take? Your message! We know which keynotes work and work together to create your rousing keynote. During your training, you will apply the knowledge you have learned time and again, practise alone and in groups and benefit from feedback from your coaches and the group. With your Gedankentanken keynote, you can inspire and move people for 18 minutes. After TheKey training, you will be ready for the stages of this world.

2. not "You can do it", but "We can do it".

With Gedankentanken you have the largest platform for speaking, personal development and coaching at your side. You get excellent support and training from the best coaches and speakers in Germany. We walk this path together and provide 1:1 for new perspectives and real motivation. This way you can get the maximum out of your training. Nevertheless: You are the boss here and responsible for the implementation.

3. no fixed dates, but full flexibility

You decide which coaches you want to work with and which topics you want to go into more depth on. After all, your keynote should represent you and your message, not us.
The intensive video courses of our experts as well as all 1:1 coachings can be attended flexibly from home and the times can be chosen in consultation with your coaches - This allows you to integrate this training ideally into your life compared to many others.

How long does the training take?

The training to become a certified Gedankentanken Speaker takes about 6 to 9 months. It all depends on you. We say, "In 8 months to your keynote". Are you ready?

Then find your positioning in 4 months,
develop your keynote in 3 months
and take care of your authentic performance for 1 month.

By the way: Even after your training, you still have access to your video courses. So you can always fall back on the expert knowledge.

How much do I have to invest in the training?

We're being completely honest with you: such a high-quality education naturally comes at a price.

You get the input of Germany's best speaking experts such as Dr. Stefan Frädrich, René Borbonus, Frank Asmus, Michael Ehlers and many more. In addition, you will receive individual 1:1 coaching with exercises that are perfectly tailored to you and expert tips for your development. You are flexible and can decide for yourself which coaches you would like to work with. In addition, we will provide you with the skills that will help you to build your own business as a speaker and to be really successful professionally. Apart from that, you will of course also benefit from the large reach that Gedankentanken now has through its international community.

That is, it's best to simply ask yourself the question, "Is the change that Gedankentanken Speaker training will give you worth the money?"

You can only answer that for yourself. But we think: Absolutely! Not only do you get a first-class training to become a top speaker, but you also save on travel and hotel costs, which would usually be incurred by other trainings. You also don't have to take extra vacation days.

And: You can finance the training over several months - completely without interest! :-)

If you would like to know what specific funding options you have, simply apply for the apprenticeship without obligation using one of the buttons on this page. 
We will then call you, give you detailed advice and try to find a good solution together with you (free of charge, of course).
