EVIDENCE

Trusted by world-class teams like:

Iskender has trained ca. 100 Intelligent Cloud experts from my team in his COUP framework. The participants were crazy about the workshop. Many reported back that it was actually the best workshop they have ever attended. We're still getting inquiries from team members that want to attend further COUP workshops. I can wholeheartedly recommend the COUP workshop to anyone who wants to excel in presenting and have a lot of fun at the same time.

I had high expectations. Iskender and COUP exceeded them. Amazing course format with actionable insights. Strong recommendation.

Big thank you from the Google Germany family. Approx. 100 Googlers from our Hamburg office went through Iskender’s virtual COUP session. Everyone absolutely LOVED IT. Until today people ask me if they can attend the course again. Even employees from other cities already reached out to me. His presentation style is so refreshing, very visual, fun and sticky. He is a professional and leads these workshops by example. I cannot do slides anymore without remembering his words and I hope we get to see many outstanding presentations through his help. He is not only amazing at delivering the COUP framework content but feels like a friend you want to hangout with.

Thanks to an unbelievably engaged Iskender fighting against the presentation madness out there! Best workshop ever.

Thank you Iskender Dirik for this amazing workshop! Yesterday I finally had the chance to do a ‘COUP’ guided presentation/pitch for a partner and it was simply FANTASTIC! I LOVED presenting and received really positive feedback both from my colleagues as well as from my partner. This was truly the best workshop I ever had at Microsoft - super useful, fun and super sustainable!

In a day of talks and presentations that could have been like any other corporate offsite, Iskender’s session blew me away. I’ve never been more excited about learning to be a better storyteller and speaker.

Directly after the COUP workshop, we applied for the globalpitch.com contest. We invested 1-2 hours to change our presentation deck according to the COUP Framework. The result: We won the competition (Screenshot).

The first slide-deck I created after the COUP workshop was a presentation for our country manager meeting. It was the first time in my life that I enjoyed presenting. My colleagues came to me after my presentation and congratulated me for my outstanding presentation. And that was only the first presentation I did directly after the COUP workshop!

The COUP Workshop was transformative for us. Pitching is now actually fun thanks to the COUP Framework!

Kacper, the founder of NoMagic, had amazing slides at our Portfolio Day. I asked him who created those slides. He said that he just stuck to the COUP Framework.
