The (Powerful Speaking for Women) workshop gave lots of opportunity for interaction. I picked up plenty of tips and tricks for a more powerful presentation. It was eye-opening to see how simple sentences can change your message from weak to impactful. This is an interactive training with lots of good advice to take home. workshop gave lots of opportunity for interaction. I picked up plenty of tips and tricks for a more powerful presentation.

In preparation of the Climate-KIC Summit in Milan Oct 2017 Elizabeth has proven to me to be a truly dedicated moderator for the session ‘A New Urban Food Culture’, where I was on the panel. Elizabeth was professionally interested in the subject as wel as the person and the story behind the topic. In my opinion this is what is needed to moderate a truly interesting and investigative session, and it shows Elizabeths is skilled in what she does.
I attended a public speaking coaching last week, which was organised for women. For anyone living in Belgium and interested in such coaching, I can warmly recommend Montis Public speaking, which is run by Elizabeth Van Den Bergh.
And for the record: I am not getting anything for this recommendation! I found Elizabeth really good and easy to approach. If you are a professional who maybe needs the extra boost for an important presentation, job interview etc, she’s your woman!

Elizabeth is a pleasure to work with, engaged and curious. From the first meeting where we discussed the brief and the task at ahead, Elizabeth was fully engaged, curious and asked lots of helpful questions to focus on what was needed. Once Elizabeth was briefed and understood what needed to be done, I felt confident about letting her get on with building a rapport with the speakers and developing the panels for the day. She also showed good grace and professionalism in a pressured situation in rehearsals. Elizabeth’s presenting work was great – calm and thoughtful. Elizabeth was a really crucial part of the events team.
Elizabeth hielp me in de keynote coaching om de balans te vinden tussen ‘wat wil ik graag allemaal vertellen’ en ‘wat kan je effectief overbrengen op een bende onbekenden in 20 min’. Ik leerde om veel meer rekening te houden met de verwachtingen en gevoelens van het publiek. Elizabeth is iemand die je kan helpen je spreken van gemiddeld naar uitstekend te tillen.
I would definitely recommend the training ‘Powerful Public Speaking for Women’. It was very interesting to test and analyse different presentation styles. And it is very helpful to have some techniques at hand to manage emotions before and during a presentation.
