In this episode (8) of Berlin’s Awakening Beauties, our host Mark Felstead talks to one of Germany’s Breakfast TV celebrities.
Kay-Sölve Richter (pictured) is a woman Mark confesses he often shares his morning coffee with – via TV of course, as she is the News Anchor for ZDF Breakfast TV.
Kay is an absolute bundle of energy and floods the podcast waves with her passion and energy as she explains making the transition from TV to being a top presenter at live events. She also describes her work as a communications/executive coach for people presenting on stage or in front of the camera. And she shares with us her top three tips for presenting to a large audience.
Of course, Kay was heavily in demand for panel discussions, conferences and Gala Dinners pre-Covid (remember those?) but now, too, for hybrid and virtual events.
Kay advises treating the pandemic as an opportunity, although agrees “nothing can replace face to face”.
Get ready, then, for a high-octane ride on the Richter scale, together with Kay and Mark, who, for once, is briefly lost for words himself. She predicts a future packed with hybrid events.
If you like what you hear from Kay, there is a lot more to be learnt from her new book Executive Presence – How to present to audiences when it really has to count!
Mark adds that Kay is not only in his kitchen in the mornings, but also by the bedside at night as he flips the pages.
In your dreams, Mark!
