Interview with Stephan Lendi

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

Stephan Lendi:

Workshop topics:

  • Presentation skills / rhetoric
  • Media training
  • Camera training
  • Interview training
  • Body language
  • Radio/TV/Podcast Hosting

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

Stephan Lendi:

Through my work, I reach people and industries who are concerned with the present and the future, who want to develop, see potential and find opportunities to bring about change, both in positive initial situations, but also when the challenges are complex and the risks are high.

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

Stephan Lendi:

Several thousand radio and television commercials, several hundred hours of moderation on stage, in front of the camera and behind the microphone always in the interest of the listeners and viewers characterise me. My education, profound knowledge and broad interests ranging from social issues to the world of business and NGOs, but also politics, make me a sought-after and always curious interviewer. In addition to linguistic fluency, my studies and further training, ranging from an MBA in global communication to mediation training at Harvard Law School, have shaped me.

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

Stephan Lendi:

As a moderator, it is about creating the perfect connection between continuous change and the highest quality requirements in terms of research, preparation, dramaturgy, and a basis of trust with customers and guests. The movement in our world creates opportunities, but also risks, which must be discovered as a moderator. Change is therefore the idea generator that sets the pulse. And in order to understand this pulse precisely, even at the highest speed, it is important to take time for the customers, the guests and the audience.

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

Stephan Lendi:

I enjoy listening to people, understanding them, discovering their motives, motivations and imprints, being allowed to ask anything if the tone is right and at the same time not having to judge. This is my driving curiosity, my demand on myself, and a wonderful privilege at the same time.
