Elizabeth Van Den Bergh is a speaking coach on a mission to bring out the best speaker in everyone
Being able to speak with impact is a career accelerator. Whether you're an employee, a manager or an entrepreneur — when you speak well, you gain influence with colleagues, clients and stage audiences.
I believe speaking well does not come from learning 'textbook' speaking techniques alone.
When I work with clients we get to the core: Confidence, Mindset, and Beliefs. Only when we develop those in the right direction can we move on to teaching tactics. Lack of confidence or an unhelpful mindset always shines through!
As for those tactics, I like to group them under two categories:
- In Preparation, we look at techniques to shape your presentation or speech beforehand in the shortest time possible.
- Delivery focuses on energy and creating a dynamic presence. You'll learn how to tweak your performance to grab your audience's attention, and keep it!
How I can help you speak with impact
If you're a woman looking to improve your speaking skills in a group setting with a low investment, take a look at our Powerful Speaking for Women workshop.
I would definitely encourage you to download my free e-book with 9 tips that you can start using straight away.
Please note that I also do in-house training. Get in touch to discuss the details.
My own journey
I had plenty of experience in people management from previous jobs. This is how I realized how many people are held back in their careers because they do not communicate with impact.
Several years of Toastmasters membership (a leading worldwide meetup-style organisation for better public speaking) plus a number of on-stage performances as a moderator and speaker, taught me about the art of speaking well. Being coached by multiple business coaches over the years taught me about the importance of confidence and mindset, and how to get them 'right'.
Today I work with individuals, businesses and EU-related organizations to help people become better speakers. My clients include Nestlé, Starwood Hotels, PwC, Deloitte, Proximus, German Marshall Fund, Charlie Magazine, Waeg, European Trade Union Institute, Interel, Trans European Policy Studies Association and many more.
I am also the current Speaker Coach & Coach Coordinator at TEDxFlanders.
It is my personal mission to make women shine on the public stage and end all-male panels. That’s why I organize the workshop Powerful Public Speaking for Women on a regular basis. Check out this blog post from a happy participant.
Finally, I do regular talks on leadership and personal branding.
