Julia Reichert – the “5 Premium Speakers Questions”

23. March 2023 – Mandy Weinand

Julia Reichert has been working on her mind from an early age. She tested her own memory as an 11-year-old girl on a stage and in front of 16 million TV viewers. At that time, she was a guest of Thomas Gottschalk and won a memory bet on “Wetten, dass…” (bet that…). Today, she is still fascinated by the brain, what it can do and why we sometimes do illogical things and do them over and over again. In 2022, her popular science guidebook ‘Brain to Go’ was published. Among other things, she gets to the bottom of the question of why we all become a bit demented at thirty, why nagging makes us unhappy and yet we do it all the time.

The communication expert is currently working on a book about neuro-rhetoric.

In the interview, she tells us more about the exciting topic of memory, brain and the question of why.

Julia Reichert in the interview:

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

Julia Reichert:

My talks are about:

  • Negative emotions
  • Neuroscience
  • Psychology
  • Communication
  • Rhetoric
  • Stage fright
  • Attention
  • Smartphone

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

Julia Reichert:

This includes managers, staff development, service management and education staff. I address all age groups.

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

Julia Reichert:

I studied languages and brain science for a long time in college and then wrote a book about it. This year, another book on the subject of neuro-communication will follow. The feedback on my TEDx speech 2022 was very positive and I realized that I enjoy talking. My favorite part is being the presenter at a workshop and encouraging the audience to jump over their own shadows.

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

Julia Reichert:

There are strong tendencies for neuro-communication to play an increasingly important role in people’s lives. It is no longer enough to just do something – people want to understand why you should or should not do something. The brain is the only organ that can study itself. At the same time, the trend is toward resilience, letting go, doing less, and distracting less. Since the brain is not a multitasker, these topics are of great importance. At the end of my speech, I like to give an appeal to turn off the smartphone and take a ‘digital detox’ vacation.

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

Julia Reichert:

  • “Live and let live” (be generous)
  • “Talking is fun!” (anticipation instead of stage fright)
  • “The greatest gift is attention.” (being a good listener)
