European Startups Podcast – the pitch / public speaking

In this second episode of the European Startups Podcast, we talk about public speaking and pitching. Our guest is Florian Mück, a German communication expert living in Barcelona. Florian is a social entrepreneur who founded the project The Festival. One Week, One Europe — an initiative to create a European team spirit. Before, he worked as a consultant and business development manager for almost a decade for KPMG, the global advisory firm. Since he joined the Bacelona chapter of Toastmasters International in 2005, public speaking has become his greatest passion. In 2009 he turned this passion into a profession by launching The Seven Minute Star – Inspiring Communication for Leaders and Teams.

Today, a collaborator of IESE Business School Barcelona and author of The Seven Minute Star – Become a Great Speaker in 15 Simple Steps, he offers inspiring communication seminars, presentation coaching, keynote speeches and moderation – mainly to large corporations but also to startups. If you are curious to see Florian Mück in action, you should definetly watch the emotional speach he held in 2010 at the TEDx conference in Barcelona – although it is in Spanish. But first of all, enjoy this next episode of our Podcast:

  1. Nice interview, lots of value, wide range of ideas.

    Investors do not invest in businesses. They invest in stories about businesses. What makes a story compelling? Specifics. Facts. Testimonials. Sense of scarcity + social proof (give the sense that “many other investors pushing money towards us…”). Any sense of desperation = total no for investor.
