Who else is at the speaker retreat?

Coaches & Participants

Together with a small and select group of people who – like you – want to change the world or their company with their ideas, you will learn how to successfully create impact and gravitas with your speeches and presentations.

You will be supported by Anna, who in her first life as an actress and comedienne has acquired “craft” tools for voice and body language. She will pass all this on to you with great passion and joy. Anna accompanies speakers from the digital economy, science and green tech to the stages of the relevant trade fairs and conferences and hopefully soon you too.

You want to achieve more and inspire your audience!

Acting techniques and storytelling

After actors had been practicing learning-by-doing for a very long time, a few of them set out to explore their own techniques about a hundred and fifty years ago. Their aim was to bundle the accumulated knowledge and pass it on as teachings. This has given rise to a variety of methods and approaches, all of which are united by the fact that they help to give people a “superhuman” effect.

Similarly, a good forty years ago, some screenwriters in Hollywood began to wonder whether there could be rules and systems that could explain when and why one story becomes successful and another does not. The findings of C.G. Jung and Joseph Campel, among others, were used for this purpose.

So you already have the knowledge and methods you need to achieve more, inspire and convince others!
In our speaker retreats you will learn how to use them.

For you as a speaker and communicator, your body language, your vocal expressiveness, your gripping storytelling and your staging are your tools – we take a close look at everything and take it to the next level together. By turning your stories into narratives and bringing into play exactly those acting tools that best support you in strengthening your impact.

Confident appearance & gripping storytelling

‘Your Act of Change’ is more than a speaker academy or speaker camp – it’s your chance to learn how to use your personality and skills to shape the world with your ideas.
The acting tools and storytelling offer you all the tricks to perform sustainably on all your stages in the future. Whether it’s your next salary negotiation, your most important pitch or a keynote speech at a congress.

Thank you for the many valuable tips and the shared ranting, laughing and trying things out!

I would never have thought how crucial my stage presence would be for my day-to-day work as a sparring partner for entrepreneurs. This realization has decisively changed my professional approach.
The atmosphere that Anna and her team created at the speaker retreat was not only educational, but also warm and supportive. The secluded, enchanting surroundings in France contributed to this. “Nicely locked up” has a whole new meaning. The integration of body and voice as a holistic means of expression has taken my presentation skills to a new level. Thank you once again for this enriching experience.

The house & the place

nicely locked up

In France, nature is endless: in the middle of it all, on the edge of the volcanic mountains of the Auvergne, lies the Cantal. And in the lower left corner of the Cantal lies Laroquebrou.
The small medieval town is the perfect place if you really want to get out and yet remain accessible at all times, asthe fiber optic network is faster than in Hamburg and the small town has a train station.

With its rolling hills, ancient atmosphere and endless forests and fields, Laroquebrou is the ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. And the old stable building by the river, where we work and live, is the ideal place to find yourself and grow beyond yourself.
We are sure that you will find what you need here!

You will sleep in one of the 5 individually designed rooms in the house or in one of the small, charming hotel rooms on the other side of the street. We will eat on the dreamy terrace with a view of the river. We work downstairs in the old stable and upstairs in one of the communal rooms.
In your free time, or whenever you just want to get out and about, you can grab our SUP and head down to the lake. Or simply stroll across the bridge and then have a coffee in front of the church.

Arrival

This route is worth the journey

It is possible to take the night train from Paris on Friday or Saturday before breakfast. You can also fly to Toulouse and come to us from there by train or rental car.
