The story of retorio

It all began back in 2016 in a seminar at the Technical University of Munich. A normal autumn day.

On this day, the students from the seminar had to hold a presentation in order to pass it. The students were paired in groups, where each of them had to present in front of the class. One group after another came to the front and was presenting its results. Each student had to talk for himself only surrounded and supported by his own group. Some students started speaking with a nervous voice, while others seemed confident. Some of them started making nervous gestures such as rubbing their arms or crossing their feet, while others were standing like an ark.

The lecturers had a hard time to concentrate on the content rather than the nonverbal behavior of the students, but they were supposed to make unbiased judgements about the students’ intellectual performance. After recapping all the presentations they had seen, they noticed that those students who had a hard time presenting were not necessarily less intellectual. Scenarios like these were also part of their own experience when applying for jobs or presenting at academic conferences.

The lecturers made a decision: they wanted to support everybody who struggles in communication skills in order to create equal opportunities.

retorio was born. The AI-based communication coach for everybody.
