ANNABELLE "BEE" BAUMANN
Intrapersonal Communication Trainer & Humorous Motivational Speaker
Living in Germany 15 years has taught me a lot concerning communicating effectively and also not taking myself too seriously! I started doing Stand-up 3 years ago and caught the comedy and Improve bug!
These days “know thyself” is no longer just a maxim, but it is a proven bankable skill that can help you get the job you want, collaborate, build your own business, and short-circuit conflict. I am certified as a Intercultural Business Trainer and Moderator and I have over 15 years as a communication trainer teaching Business English and communication skills. What I know is that language is half of our communication. The other half is body language, tone of voice, and listening skills. It’s like line dancing you must coordinate!
We all need to get along but more than that we want to thrive. I will show you how to thrive by understanding yourself and learning how to “read” others based on HIVE, Honest, Insightful, Valuable, Engagement.
As a stand-up Comic, writer, and motivational speaker I am proud to say I am on the spectrum of Neurodiversity!
I am what Anthony Gregoric classified as an abstract random thinker. I couldn’t think inside a box -even if it were a Boombox and I was DJing a boxing match with the Queen. Once I accepted my difference, I was able to explore communication and how to make it work for me, when I reach for random connections. However, I do want to connect, and I know that is one reason we reach out and so we have to make it stick. That’s why I created H.I.V.E - speaking your truth is the key to understanding yourself and others. Inside a hive, communication creates harmony, and in the human environment we seek to create a harmonious environment.
