Who is Deniz Canpolat?

Throughout his life Deniz has always been passionate about public speaking. He has developed his public speaking skills by being a member of the Erasmus debating society (Rotterdam) and the community Toastmasters International (Frankfurt), but mostly by taking every career opportunity to present and evaluate his performance. As he was increasingly asked by professionals to coach them on their presentation skills, he founded two years ago his company Obloma as a certified public speaking coach. Meanwhile, Deniz has coached and provided all kinds of workshops to many different clients with a focus on finance, law, and start-up/entrepreneurial professionals. His client focus is explained by his 8-years-experience within the ING Bank, where Deniz is still responsible for providing financing to private equity investors active in the M&A market. Due to his experience as young professional, he is able to provide the ICA-members with valuable insights on how to powerfully present within the corporate world.
