Embody Leadership


About this course

When you’re speaking in a group, do you ever find people don’t take you seriously? That they don’t really listen? This course will teach you the soft skills you need to lead and communicate more effectively.


Many of us in the Tamedia Group already know Felix Ritter from his work coaching speakers to present at TX Conf. We’re happy we can get Felix back to help us further develop speaking and presentation skills across the company. This in turn can make you a better leader, help you better communicate your ideas to others and even improve your relationship with customers.

This course focuses on body awareness, employee branding and stakeholder branding.

I especially enjoy working with engineers, because they have something to say. Even if they are a bit introverted, they can become inspirational speakers. We all should listen to them, because they shape a big part of our future.
— Felix Ritter

Feedback from Last Time

The training gave me a lot of energy and Felix is a fantastic coach!
I have found course useful and entertaining. The takeaway would be that now I have more methods how to deal with stage fright, and to look more deeper into the body language of myself and others.
