In the early stages of the FFG, Birgit's in-house training sessions made a major contribution to getting to know colleagues from the other departments better. I was lucky enough to have had Birgit as a trainer during various seminars (Train the Trainer, communications training, moderation training).
Her seminars are always informative and entertaining. The atmosphere is professional and yet playful. With a lot of creativity and commitment, she provides her contents in a practical, easy to understand way, so that they stick in your mind. After the training participants can immediately put, what they have learned, into practice. I was able to take a lot away with me from Birgit's seminars - both professionally and private.
As a presentation coach, Birgit has successfully encouraged me to convey topics unconventionally. The more than positive feedback from the audience after my presentation has made me very happy!

Regular reflection on the quality of our training sessions and our personal performance as trainers is very important to the team of trainers at the FFG Academy / European and International Programme. For the purposes of procuring new input and not always “stewing in our own juices” we commissioned feedback from Birgit Baumann.
She observed two of our 2-day training seminars and recorded important parts of the sessions on video. We processed the feedback on our training design together with her during a feedback workshop and analysed the video recordings.
The ideas, suggestions for improvement and input as well as her personal feedback were extremely valuable. Her experience, expert competence and motivated appearance never cease to impress. Both our training sessions and we as trainers profited from her analysis work and we went about the implementation of our next training events highly motivated.
