  • David Nemitz est un excellent Formateur. - Angeline Todaro Alstom Transport S.A

    La formation dispensée par David Nemitz au sein de notre établissement a été très bénéfique. Nous avons tous eu un réel plaisir à suivre cette formation. Car David n’est pas un Professeur, c’est un vrai FORMATEUR, à l’écoute des participants.

    Il déploie une énergie positive, communicative et nous oblige à aller plus loin dans notre perception de la langue. Son enthousiasme constant et sa grande générosité, nous permet d’avancer, de comprendre et de mettre en pratique les connaissances que nous avons acquises à son contact.

    Il nous permet de dépasser nos « complexes » d’expression orale, en mettant en avant nos capacités et nos points forts, tout en nous appuyant sur nos faiblesses pour aller plus avant.

    Il a su comprendre ce que nous recherchions dans une formation telle que celle-ci. Le dialogue, l’échange, l’utilisation du vocabulaire, la gymnastique « facile » de passer d’une langue à l’autre. Toujours trouver un moyen d’utiliser la langue dans la logique de chacun, grâce à des moyens mnémotechniques, de façon à ne plus commettre les mêmes erreurs et à s’en souvenir !

    Il fait preuve d’une grande pédagogie, aborde tous les sujets dont nous avons besoin au quotidien, s’adapte à chaque sujet. Ce qui nous donne de l’assurance et de la confiance pour nous lancer dans l’échange commun, appréhender divers discussion, et aujourd’hui face à nos interlocuteurs.

    David Nemitz est un excellent Formateur, je recommande énergiquement ses formations et souhaite à ses nouveaux « apprentis » autant de plaisir que nous tous en avons eu chaque semaine à participer à cette formation.

  • I’m truly grateful to you, David Nemitz. - Shannon w. Chamberlain Onboard Media

    I remember the first time I read Speech Smarts. It affected me in a very powerful way. I still recall the words that created an epiphany for me, “The real meaning of your communication comes from the response you get, regardless of your intention.” I carry that lesson with me everyday in my interactions with family and friends and especially when I’m delivering a speech. I seem to find a golden nugget or two each week that I can apply to not only my speeches, but to my life. The lessons I’ve learned from Speech Smarts have given me a great deal of self-awareness and an abundance of self-reflection. I’m truly grateful to you, David Nemitz. I feel like reading Speech Smarts has made me a better person.

  • Merci David. - Laurence Oxenberg, French Ministry of Foreign Affairs

    Au cours de ma carrière d’Attachée de Presse, le Ministère des Affaires Etrangères m’a confié, pendant 42 ans, des postes dans les Consulats et Ambassades de France à travers le monde. Dans le cadre des missions qui m’étaient imparties, j’ai très souvent eu à exposer, expliquer, et parfois défendre, la politique de la France auprès des media des pays dans lesquels j’étais affectée. Or, parler en public était pour moi, loin d’être un exercice qui me plaisait mais que j’associais davantage à une pure torture sociale. Et ce plus encore lorsqu’il a fallu, à deux instances, que je parle de moi. Lorsque j’ai rencontré David Nemitz, j’ai été éblouie par son éloquence, par son aisance à s’adresser à un public, à faire face à une salle comble sans jamais avoir la moindre trace d’anxiété dans la voix, et par son don de pouvoir la faire vibrer et vivre par ses paroles. Grace à David, j’ai maintenant réussi, moi aussi, à surmonter ce “trac” intense, en particulier lorsque que l’on m’a remis les insignes de Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur et que j’ai du prononcer un discours d’acceptation. Merci David.

  • une amélioration rapide de l’aisance de l’expression - Yannick Le Boulvais, Alstom Transport S.A

    David est un passionné de l’échange et de la communication. Il met à profit cette richesse pour rendre ses cours intéressants et efficaces.
    Il se positionne d’abord comme un interlocuteur et ensuite comme un professeur. L’élève est sorti de la passivité par des échanges basés sur des sujets en relations avec son quotidien ou des sujets d’actualités. David ne reprend pas immédiatement l’élève pour des fautes mineures tant que les phrases restent compréhensibles et que l’élève ne se trouve pas dans une impasse. Les fautes sont revues dans un second temps. De cette façon, l’élève prend confiance en ses capacités à communiquer. La reprise des fautes dans un second temps permet de focaliser les explications sur les lacunes de l’élève et ainsi de l’aider au mieux.
    Les qualités humaines de David associées à cette méthode permettent une amélioration rapide de l’aisance de l’expression de l’élève.

  • prepared me to respond, not react - David Cepeda, Sony Latin America, Inc

    David Nemitz has individually coached me to improve interview and presentation skills. As an interview is a high stakes presentation, David’s coaching prepared me to respond, not react to tough questions. First he learned about my capabilities and objectives, and then he turned my concerns into powerful talking points. David’s coaching definitely worked. His advice on physical appearance, talking points and pre prepared answers helped achieve the expected results. I would highly recommend David Nemitz to someone who would like to improve their interview and presentation skills.

  • Mr. Nemitz has my highest endorsement - W.L. Carmichael, U.S. Department of Homeland Security United States Coast Guard

    I endorse Mr. David Nemitz as a professional speaking coach and orator. Prior to a fiscal and budgetary appearance to support continued governmental funding, I had the unique opportunity to be the beneficiary of public speaking presentation guidance from Mr.Nemitz.

    As a result from Mr. Nemitz’s mentorship and constructive feedback over a 72 hour period before this appearance, i was able to improve the organization of my presentation for a more clear and concise message. This greatly aided the overall success of the presentation’s selling points and averted the delivery of a career limiting presentation. The successful end result was a presentation with an appropriate message that garnered continued financial support from the Congressional level.

    I am grateful to Mr.Nemitz for showing and cultivating the strengths of my public speaking for an efficient and effective presentation. Mr. Nemitz has my highest endorsement as a speaking professional and gifted orator.- W.L. Carmichael, U.S. Department of Homeland Security United States Coast Guard

  • a true friend 'on the inside.' - Robert Mack, Author of Happiness from the Inside Out

    When we search for the truth outside of ourselves, it remains elusive. David Nemitz is a gifted speaker with a knack for sparking conscious conversations and igniting real, personal insights. Upon each encounter and listening experience with David, I evolve in fresh, new, powerful ways, and I am led back to my own truth time and time again. Empowerment and enlightenment are inside jobs, and I consider David a true friend ‘on the inside.’

  • pivotal to my success - Hector Miranda, M.D.

    Among the many skills a self-respected physician aspires to master is the ability to contribute to his field, excel among his peers, and to develop a deep enough rapport with patients that your medical decisions are followed. The ability to sharpen these skills was my goal prior to being coached by David. With his counsel I’ve done many successful presentations to my peers and superiors. I have had a better relationship with my patients because my ability to communicate with them has dramatically improved. David’s influence in my professional career has been pivotal to my success.
    – Hector Miranda, M.D.


  • he broke the world record - Jason Smith, Past Division E Governor Toastmasters International

    David Nemitz is a dynamic and determined presenter. When I asked for his assistance in changing our division’s paradigm of time he responded by designing and delivering ten unique speeches in seven days. As far as I know he broke the world record for completing the Competent Communicator manual and inspired hundreds to pursue their goals. Beyond his drive to achieve, he truly helps others see and believe in the power of their own voice. I recommend being a member of his audience as often as possible.

  • made public speaking fun for me - Marj Weber Chair, Score Chapter 29

    I sat in the rear of a Toastmasters meeting that David Nemitz held at The Miami Beach Botanical Gardens. I knew little about the organization, but wanted to know more. I listened and watched others apply techniques needed to improve public speaking. I did not know at the time that I would be called upon to address an audience at The Women’s Center at Arlington National Cemetery. And, a few month later I was elected as Chair of the Miami Dade Chapter of SCORE, and I have to speak before many groups to promote our programs and the work of our chapter. Next month I will address a group of students and alumnae at a women’s conference at Harvard Business School.

    That one session provided me with techniques that have made public speaking fun for me, and I have received accolades from audiences.
