About Moni Berger, the presenter

I was a painfully shy child. But studying at the Sorbonne in Paris - and then working for myself as an interpreter and translator in Spain – gave me a whole new outlook on life. Back in Germany, I got involved in multilingual guided tours of museums and factories, but my unstinting devotion to communication through the written word somewhat stunted my social skills. Then, about seven years ago, I discovered the immense joys of acting, and really came out of my shell. Moreover, I got into Milton Erickson’s approach to NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and Marshall Rosenberg’s work in Nonviolent Communication (conflict resolution), and I also took my first steps onto the stage and in film. In the last few years I have qualified as an applied theatre practitioner at Volkshochschule Neukölln in Berlin: now, what I really want to do is to use this recognition and qualification to empower others through the pleasure of acting, whilst bringing a little fun and colour to the humdrum grey of everyday life.
