Herman is geweldig, zijn kennis over dit onderwerp is enorm, wat hij door zijn eigen ervaring, theoretische achtergrond en praktische oefeningen op een gemakkelijk te begrijpen en onmiddellijk toepasbare manier overbrengt. Hij is attent en stemt de les af op je behoeften, waarbij hij niet alleen je specifieke verbeterpunten identificeert, maar je ook praktische hulpmiddelen geeft om te verbeteren. Zeer aan te bevelen!
Mijn ervaring met Herman was geweldig. Hij was super gastvrij en niet-veroordelend. Ik had het gevoel dat ik hem al jaren ken. In eerste instantie besprak ik mijn angsten en twijfels, en aan het einde van mijn privé sessie van 2 uur heb ik zoveel technieken en levenslessen opgedaan en geleerd. Uiteindelijk was het een plezier om met hem samen te werken en ik kijk uit naar wat komen gaat! Dit was mijn eerste ervaring met Herman's coaching, maar het zal zeker niet mijn laatste zijn. Als je het moeilijk hebt tijdens presentaties of je spreekvaardigheid in het openbaar wilt verbeteren, ga dan naar Herman, je zult er geen spijt van krijgen!
Ik krijg paniekaanvallen als ik denk aan spreken in het openbaar. Ik vind het geven van lezingen en presentaties onaangenaam en zowel mentaal als fysiek uitputtend. Ik was niet optimistisch dat we iets zouden bereiken in 2 uur, maar verrassend genoeg bereikten we echt enorm veel. Herman is deels coach, deels psychiater, deels cheerleader. Hij hielp me om mijn benadering van spreken in het openbaar opnieuw vorm te geven. Sterk aanbevolen. Zal zeker opnieuw met hem samenwerken.
Herman is een geweldig persoon. Hij gaf me een heel zelfverzekerd gevoel tijdens de coaching. Ik heb me nog nooit zo zelfverzekerd gevoeld tijdens het presenteren. Nogmaals bedankt Herman.
Dit is absoluut de beste training ter wereld! Geloof me! Herman geeft echt om mensen en wil dat ze succesvol zijn in hun leven. Dus hij wijst op de individuele angsten die elke persoon heeft bij spreken in het openbaar en biedt gepersonaliseerde oplossingen voor ieder individu. Na slechts één les te hebben bijgewoond, zal spreken op ieder gebied in uw leven, niet alleen in het openbaar, worden verbeterd. Absoluut een aanrader. Je spreekvaardigheid zal drastisch verbeteren.
Herman is buitengewoon gepassioneerd over wat hij doet en daarom is hij een absolute expert in zijn vak. Hij leert je lessen die je niet vindt in traditionele cursussen en boeken over spreken in het openbaar, en daarom is het zo waardevol. Het zijn fundamentele principes, maar ook tactieken die toepasbaar en gemakkelijk te gebruiken zijn. Er wordt gezegd dat mensen die het meeste over een onderwerp weten, het op de eenvoudigste manier kunnen uitleggen, en dat is wat Herman kan. Bedankt voor de geweldige coachingsessie. Ik zal zeker nog meer sessies bij je boeken.
De 4 uur durende sessie die ik bijwoonde, bestond uit het doornemen van voorbeelden en het toepassen van technieken om spreken in het openbaar te verbeteren. Met deze concrete voorbeelden in de hand weet ik nu wat ik kan oefenen om mijn spreken in het openbaar te verbeteren. Herman is erg boeiend om naar te luisteren. Hij weet precies hoe hij met ieders sterke punten kan werken op een manier die niet geforceerd is.
Herman is een geweldige coach en ik raad je ten zeerste aan om met hem samen te werken om je spreekvaardigheid in het openbaar aan te scherpen. De lessen zijn leerzaam en vooral leuk. Zeer de moeite waard!
Hermen Otten takes you with him during the course to have you discover yourself in speaking in public.It is a friendly journey and unavoidable effective.I long for more of these sessions with him because Herman makes you discover uncharted territory within you.So go ahead and join the club of perfect speakers!
Hi All - I recently completed a private public speaking training session with Herman over Zoom...I had some doubts going in about how effective it could be...but in the end I was very happy. Herman is excellent, he makes you go from not wanting to speak in public to actually being excited to go out and do it. My plan is to do a group session in person with him next. Highly recommend.
Herman is a wonderful coach. He makes the environment very safe, and judgment free. His exercises are easy to practice, immediately effective, and allow you to always get better. The classes are small to give everyone ample time to work on an array of different skills for all different kinds of situations. He tries to form a connection with every single student, and you leave feeling not just improved in your public speaking, but supported on your journey. I've taken this class multiple times because it's so good, and always learn something new each time.
So glad I came across Herman Otten's public speaking classes. For me it was a game-changing experience! Learned a lot, and most of all: having a lot of fun. Not only in class but also eventually in the spotlight (which i was dreading before). Highly recommend Herman for speakers of all levels.
Excellent and very useful class! Very interactive in order to practice and internalize what you learn, with personal feedback and tips. Herman very enthusiastic and eager to help. Highly recommended!
I had no idea a 1 day class could be so effective! I went into the day completely terrified and overcome with anxiety, and left feeling on top of the world. Herman created an environment in which trust was built very quickly, allowing us to have fun and loosen up. Rather than suppressing our fears, we were able to address them head on in a judge free zone. All classmates were incredibly encouraging and supportive, thanks to the positive space Herman created.I was able to see a noticeable improvement in my public speaking confidence level through just one class, which I have carried into my work week. When I found out that a level 2 class had been developed, I signed up right away! I would recommend this class to the most anxious public speaker, in addition to the confident public speaker seeking improvement.
Awesome experience. I've learned a lot. Herman really focuses on your opportunities and make sure that at the end of the day you will be a better public speaker.
What an experience! The session was so interesting and educational that I am definitely looking forward to the next one.
I wasn’t sure if taking a public speaking one on one session would be helpful but after my lesson with Herman my approach on speaking in public has changed. He will give you the skills to change your negative mindset into positive ones. He is easy to understand and work with. The lesson was a confidence builder and turned out to be a lot of fun. I recommend working with Herman you will notice your improvement instantly.
Herman has helped me incredibly well in a short time. Due to his great knowledge and experience, he gives you feedback that is immediately applicable. He puts you at ease. As a result, I never felt shame while practicing. Thanks to his help, I was able to make a successful video presentation.
The best professional coaching experience I’ve had in years! Herman is very knowledgeable & gave very meaningful feedback to improve my presentation skills. The exercises were very relatable & easily translatable to my professional presentations. Overall very positive experience & hope to continue learning through future courses.
We did an online training with Herman. I really enjoyed the training and I learned a lot!
I really enjoyed Herman's coaching through Zoom! I learned a lot and I definitely would recommend this one on one coaching.
Herman has a rare ability to make public speaking a fun and enjoyable activity.

Fabulous! I was really looking forward to our group session, but, due to the current situation, was unable to attend. Herman was very flexible, and offered me a virtual 1-1 coaching session instead. He listened patiently to the areas I wanted to work on, gave very helpful tips, and even provided further suggestions based upon our simulations. Highly recommended -- when this is all over I'd love to attend a group session in person.
One of the best public speaking coaching I had in my life. I took an online coach on Zoom and it was amazing. Herman made me aware of all my working points in such a gentle way. Yesterday I gave an online presentation to my colleagues and it went better than ever before. Thank you so much and I hope to join one of your group classes soon !
What a great experience! I just got a private online coaching in public speaking. I learned how to speak in front of a camera and how to present myself online, which is really helpful for me because the upcoming weeks all my meetings will happen online. A great session which I would definitely take again.
This was great! Herman created a very welcoming and open environment, gave great feedback throughout the day, and very clearly explained tactics and strategies to improve public speaking in general and in common professional scenarios. Would recommend the class to anyone!
Herman is the best. He doesn't just teach, he ensures that you learn and I mean learn something really valuable. I will recommend him any day!

Well design course. Passionate teacher. Every student gets individual attention. Feels inclusive in the class. You learn many things at the end of the day. Everyone must take this class.
This class was extremely helpful in helping me overcome stuttering, overthinking and presenting a public speaking presentation with ease and comfort. Herman was great at working one on one with each of us, and in providing us the necessary feedback to excel. I would highly recommend this class for you!
Had a super fun and educational day. Herman ensures that through his personal attention, everyone will go home with an individual tip and self-confident feeling in terms of public speaking.
Herman is a great tutor and makes you feel very comfortable. I enjoyed the training a lot
I enjoyed practicing the public speaking tips that Herman shared during our class. Fun and supportive environment. I learned a lot!
This class was fantastic! I was a little hesitant to go, not knowing anything about Herman or the class, but it exceeded every expectation! I feel so much more confident speaking in front of a group, and Herman offered really practical, helpful tips to help with my anxiety and become a more effective public speaker. Well worth the time and money!
Excellent course. Herman helped me improve my public speaking skills by pointing me to my weaknesses and how to fix it. Public speaking is very critical for job interviews, entering conference rooms, meetings, etc. Highly recommended!
Herman is the best public speaking coach ever! His class is so interesting and informative! We had fun! After the class I had presentations which was a blast. I m so thankful I found out this class!
Herman was enthusiastic and engaging the whole time there. I truly enjoyed the class and met some wonderful folks along the way. It was a very enlightening class and I definitely took a lot away from it.
Herman is a very talented and engaging speaking coach. He has a huge amount of experience and I would recommend his course to anyone.

I enjoyed Herman's class a lot. This class is distinguishable from others because Herman's teaching style is warm and effective. The class size is small so we get plenty of time to practice on important speaking elements.I learned important tactics such as PAUSES, using shorter sentences, and being more fluid with head and eye movement. The importance of visualizing what we're saying versus of thinking of ourselves delivering was an important realization. I'd highly recommend this class. It was the best day of my week by far.
Herman is a consummate professional who led an interactive and results oriented public speaking course. I plan on incorporating all of his teachings in my upcoming speaking engagements.
Herman is a talented and motivating teacher. His techniques are beyond effective and spot on! The intimate class size allowed for a safe space among people with the same common goal, but for various reasons. I already feel more confident in my speaking abilities after taking this class. I recommend 100%
I am thrilled to write this recommendation for Herman's training in public speaking. I decided to take the course because of my desire to overcome my fears surrounding speaking to large groups publicly. It was money well spent. I walked away with tools that I know I will be able to apply with ease during my next presentation. Herman was so easy going and encouraging, every time he instructed me to stand and present I was excited to do so. The training provided me the confidence I needed to keep striving to get better.
This class was great! I love that it was a small group so that everyone has chance. Herman is a great instructor, he made everything simple, easy, comfortable, and fun! I highly recommend this class!
Herman really helped me to feel less self conscious and to focus on the presentation, which made public speaking enjoyable.
I took the class with Herman recently. It was great. Herman creates an environment that allows you to learn what you are doing wrong and how to correct it. It was fun, a little challenging but most importantly very beneficial. If you want to be a better public speaker, this is the class to take.
The training was very direct and valuable.Mr. Herman Otten is an effective trainer.
Herman is a master of public speaking. I would absolutely recommend this course. He fostered a welcoming and safe environment for all members of the class to work on their specific areas of improvement while also assisting each other.
