Niki is a public speaker's gift. He challenged me to condense material worth a lifetime into 15 minutes, prompting me to go deeper than ever, and yielding new, creative ways to convey complex ideas. Even more important was his loving support, the energetic upliftment that carried me in the weeks, days and minutes leading up to this talk, and on the TEDx stage. Thank you, Niki!

Thank you very much for your input and guidance, Niki. In the beginning your idea seemed a bit unlogical, but the understanding of your hidden agenda enabled me to create a new empowering dimension in my speech, which I wouldn’t have had without you helpful guidance. I highly recommend you to all public speaker, seeking for professional guidance.

Niki has the power of simple communication. He first understands you, then guides you by somehow letting you guide yourself. Listening to his guidance is as comfortable as listening to your inner voice :)

As a speaker with decades of experience in a variety of venues, I found Niki's help very insightful. He was able to suggest ways I could rearrange my content that made my presentation much more engaging. I don't think I would like to do a high-stakes presentation without his help.

It was great to work with Niki on my TEDx Talk, he facilitated my speech coming to live, introduced me to rhetorics and helped me put my thoughts and ideas in spoken words. His expertise and experience aided my confidence to stand on stage and deliver my message to the world. I feel grateful to have worked with a speech coach that was as straightforward, supporting and concise as Niki was in this process.

Niki is truly an amazing coach to work with. Trough his honest, warm and open nature you’ll learn so much from him. As for me…. writing and bringing your life’s story for the first time, in only five days is quite a ride… But Niki managed to give awesome pointers an calm my nerves in the most gentle way! I would love working with him again, on unlocking and optimizing my skills.

Niki provided me with direct, applicable, & timely feedback that I could use immediately to improve my session. In addition to his excellent coaching skills he was on time, responsive to questions & concerns, and easy to work with. He was approachable, patient, & competent in preparing me for the performance which parameters he knew very well. His deep support on the day of the performance was extraordinary, even included a back rub before I stepped onto the stage.

Niki is a true coach's coach. I taught debate and speech for 3 years, and Niki helped me take my game to another level. Often working with a coach can be intimidating or annoying, but Niki brings a calm, calculated approach that made me feel comfortable. He also knew exactly the right thing to say that would keep me motivated, while also knowing what not to say depending on where we were in the process. Niki is a Jedi. Couldn't recommend him enough!

Niki is outstanding when it comes to identifying the most important issues which needs to be improved – his ability to pinpoint exactly THE three essential things to work on, and not to get you confused by a myriad of other, minor issues.

Raj Sethia

I am chaotic, impulsive, emotional … and have been speaking internationally for over a decade – bluntly speaking, a Nightmare for the Speaker Coach. But Niki has a rare talent for sensing your untapped potential and giving that one kickass tip in such a friendly, authentic manner. He focuses on what you could be, rather than what you couldn’t. A reassuring touch or a professional tip, he was always there with a cool head and a charming smile!

Niki was me "speaker's coach" for my first public presentation relating to me snow drawing, which was the TEDx at Klagenfurt in October 2014. It was great to meet him and get some advice on how to do it, and my talk (which gets altered a lot each time) has gone down well at 2 additional conferences.
