Matthias Poehm once had a key-experience as an elected staff representative. He failed miserably in front of the entire staff during a meeting with a bright red head and a trembling voice.
After that he made his fear of public speaking disappear through years of permanent training with many defeats. Meanwhile he has made a name for himself as one of the most well-known trainers of public speaking and "ready wit".
The press calls him "the best public speaking trainer in the German-speaking countries" (Nordwest Zeitung). He is the founder of the Anti PowerPoint Party. Poehm's methods are extraordinary and often go against the common doctrine. He is a rebel, who questions many things, and he says: "I am not interested in established rules, even not my own ones. I don't want to be right - I always want the best results".
Due to his analytic gift, Matthias Poehm wrote relevant books on many topics: on ready wit, public speaking, price negotiations, and seduction.
Due to a spiritual experience he found a new field that has nothing to do with the improvement of technical communicative skills. It is the topic of purpose, deep happiness, spirituality, enlightenment. Here as well he is a rebel. He says: "Wanting to improve your skills in any area is OK. But that won't render you a happy and fulfilled person. We only can overcome our phantom-life, if we acknowledge that it is there."

The PowerPoint Fallacy
by Matthias Poehm
If Obama can talk without PowerPoint
then so can you!
95% of all presentations today are given using a projector and PowerPoint*.
Yet what some people consider to be professional often completely destroys the effect on the audience. PowerPoint does not make for entertainment but rather for boredom. That is due to the fundamental concept of PowerPoint, not to how it is used!
It Isn't Success You Want - It's Happiness!
by Matthias Poehm
Anyone, who has not found an answer to the question as to why we are in the world, will be unable to discover the ultimate happiness, for which we have all been created. Perhaps you have experienced the fact that, success does not make you happy deep down – not even your marriage and, viewed over the long-term, not even your children.
What’s this life all about anyway?
Why are we here?
