Gernot Ludescher

Expert for structured communication

Gernot Ludescher, Präsentationstraining

Gernot has built his life around different worlds. On the one side he is a passionate trainer, coach and consultant with a profound industrial background. On the other side he is a farmer; operating his own farm including approximately 100 sheep and many hectares of wood. Getting off the plane and onto the tractor is what helps him achieve the most for his clients around the world, and yet still allows him enough time with his five kids back home.
His technical studies combined with business administration done both in Europe and the USA have given him the backdrop in which to develop linguistically and gain new cultural insights. Communication is his genetic inheritance: Modern communication would not be the same without his great-uncle Paul Watzlawick.
