Meet Achim

I’m Achim Nowak. I help successful CEOs and C-Suite executives in blue-chip global enterprises to show up with relaxed authority and amplify their personal influence. My 3 books pinpoint the nuances of authentic success behavior: Power Speaking: The Art of the Exceptional Public Speaker (also published in German and Chinese), Infectious: Unleash the Energetic Leader Within and The Moment: A Practical Guide to Creating a Mindful Life in a Distracted World. I also host the MY FOURTH ACT Podcast where I chat with brilliant humans who have created bold and unexpected lives.

My Masterminds are transformational incubators for exceptional humans who wish to accelerate their personal development. I host BRILLIANT BEST Masterminds for seasoned executives from enterprises such as Sanofi, Takeda, Owens Corning, NXP, Lonza, and Dover Corporation. I host FOURTH ACT Masterminds for successful individuals who have already achieved most of their goals and are ready to dream some more.

Before I launched my current firm, Brilliant Best, I founded a successful international training and coaching firm, Influens. I bring an eclectic background to what I do. I was trained as a Mediator at the Brooklyn Courts, co-founded an acclaimed theatre company in Washington DC, and draw on decades of esoteric spiritual exploration. When I was 35 I left Manhattan to live on the island of Tobago and become a windsurfer. I was a good one.

I hold a M.A. in Organizational Psychology and International Relations from New York University where I also served on the faculty. My work has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street JournalForbesFast CompanyEntrepreneur, USA Today, The Miami Herald, and on NPR and NBC. I love to write and have been recognized with a PEN Syndicated Fiction Award

I happily reside in Hollywood/Florida.
