She supports entrepreneurs and keynote speakers in communicating authentically, confidently, clearly and approachably. Whether on stage or in front of the workforce. Our voice is an underestimated tool and important element to communicate. But how do I reach my audience? How do I manage to appear and remain unagitated and self-confident? In her workshops and lectures, Inga gives tips and suggestions for better communication with an expressive voice.

1. What are the core subjects of your keynote speeches?

Inga Paulsen:

My speeches revolve around the topic of self-efficacy and self-confidence in the contexts where effective communication is elementary.

It is about humanity. Without Schackalacka motivation. About failure and getting back up again, about the crack or the trauma. The things that happen to us in our lives, that we often carry with us and rarely come to terms with. Things that make us feel uncomfortable. Uncomfortable in our skin. In our family. In our workplace. Which lead to our inner voices corroding us further and further. Which lead you to share your ideas quietly or not at all. Which lead to you falling silent with your expertise. And that’s a shame, isn’t it?

Let’s rediscover your own self, raise awareness, cultivate your inner voice, go into expression together and let your voice ring out! We’ve got our work cut out for us.

Well then – let’s go!

2. Which audiance or which branch do you reach with your speech?

Inga Paulsen:

I see no limits here. A fresh, wild perspective is needed. Get out of your comfort zone and into a new profession. Every entrepreneur knows the issue of the self-efficacy of their own employees. Especially at a time when rapid changes are decisive for competitiveness, it is usually the human factor that paralyses the step into change, slows it down or even causes it to fail.

Let’s imagine – another characteristic of the stage – that we experience people in entrepreneurial systems who actively shape their change in a self-determined, self-reflective way, full of self-confidence. And isn’t that precisely the basis of agility, new work and so on?

3. Are you a PREMIUM SPEAKER? Where do you get your insights from?

Inga Paulsen:

  • Because I’ve always been doing it.
  • My DNA is stage.
  • My DNA is human.

In my view, especially in public speaking, the stage with all its skills is not used to its full potential. Let’s make the magic of the stage tangible for all the senses and catapult our audience into an emotional rollercoaster that will be remembered for a long time. Because new, young perspectives on old or new themes, made tangible for all the senses, are worth experiencing! I do many things differently. Just try it out. Of course I also tell stories. For sure. Or should I say I do storytelling?!

4. What will be in the future? Does «time» play an important role in your work?

Inga Paulsen:

The future will bring good things if we dare to look, listen, feel and work through.

Previous generations have created enormous wealth. But my generation in particular has seen their fathers, mothers, uncles and aunts fall by the wayside. Becoming self-aware, sensitising the connection with oneself and the body, cultivating one’s own inner voice, discovering a clear attitude and bringing all this into individual expression is, in my opinion, the next step in this evolution and is also a competitive advantage.

Because self-aware employees are resilient employees who are ready for change. And that is exactly what is really worth its weight in gold in today’s world.

5. Tell us your life motto? What do you want to give your listeners to take with them?

Inga Paulsen:

Change is not always nice, but it makes you feel alive and grows your trust in yourself and others. Don’t you think so?

And isn’t this trust the basis for inner, outer and economic growth?
