TEDxZurich Speaker 2023
“After the second rehearsal for TEDxZurich 2023, I felt a bit overwhelmed by the feedback of the jury and didn’t know in which direction I should steer my story, as the opinions of the jury members were quite different. Then I remembered the TED Talk by Aurélie Litynski, also part of WeCoCo. I remembered that she worked with a TEDx coach from Lausanne in 2021.
His name was Christopher Lübbers and I wanted to find out more about him and his approach to storytelling and public speaking. That’s how we got to know each other in December, even before my final confirmation as a TEDx speaker.
His direct and solution-oriented approach appealed to me very much. He not only helped me to fine-tune my speech, but more importantly, shortly before my performance at the event itself. I owe it to his open and extremely emphatic manner that I did not let myself be distracted when my father was in very bad health condition shortly before my talk.
I owe it to Chris that I was still able to go on stage grounded and calm.
I am grateful and happy to have found a WeCoCo in Chris.”
