Alexander immediately convinced me of his psychological and professional competence.
“I highly recommend Mr Harmsen’s competency to all those in international or national research competitions.”
Mr. Harmsen coached my 2nd round ERC Starting Grant presentation for 14 highest level academics in Brussels. The way he worked with me immediately convinced me of his psychological and professional competence. This begins with his ability to create a trustworthy and familiar atmosphere, which is rarely found in a university setting.
One gets the feeling of entering an intellectually and personally highly open-minded and inspiring space. The special things about Mr. Harmsen’s support is that you immediately forget that the coaching is about rhetorical, psychological and gestural “techniques” and (auto) suggestion. The brainstorming and polishing process is characterized by a genuine interest in the topic, which fostered a natural constructive way of working on the presentation.
The professional qualities I noticed most working with Mr Harmsen were respect, appreciation, clarity, and openness. Not artificially suggested hubris and superficial techniques, but an authentic acknowledgment of strengths and weaknesses characterized the coaching. I highly recommend Mr Harmsen’s competency to all those in international or national research competitions.
You can rest assured that you will sharpen your ideas about your project, arrange them effectively and, finally, present with an inner conviction whose linguistic expression can develop naturally. I got the grant.
