Monika Matschnig was born in Villach, Austria, 1974. Between 1987 and 1997, she played in the Austrian National Volleyball Team. In 2001 Monika completed her studies in psychology at the Karl Franzens University in Graz.
Back then, she realized that if you want to win, you have to keep your inner attitude in harmony with your physical expression. Radiating confidence, evaluating the other person, giving the right signals at the right moment: all these are essential in sport as well as in your working and private life. These insights still influence Monika Matschnig’s work today. She loves taking the stage and inspiring enthusiasm for her philosophy of success.
Focus once called her “Germany’s top body language expert”. There are many sides to Monika’s success. She is a keynote speaker, author, consultant, lecturer, and coach. Her books are bestsellers. As a graduate psychologist who focuses on personality, work, and organizational psychology and as a qualified teacher in adult education, her knowledge and didactics make her a force to be reckoned with. She has passed on her expertise to managers, executives, personnel, politicians, and private individuals for more than 15 years.
She practices what she preaches – observing, understanding, using body language.

Many thanks for your impressive presentation and inspiring presence at our workshop on Friday. I was captivated, interested and entertained and would have loved to hear more. I also received positive feedback for your presentation from the participants.

It was a very intensive 1.5 days, and everything worked out wonderfully: over 140 employees were able to experience Ms Matschnig’s wisdom over the three sessions and be guided through the world of body language. We are all tremendously impressed and fascinated by the way you communicate and the expertise you bring. Great all around.
