My name is Alice Tumler,
I am a public speaking coach
I was born in Innsbruck, Austria, from a French mother and an Austrian father. Growing up as an outdoor girl in the Tyrolian mountains, I always had a thing for nature, and it was on one of these mountains, that I decided as a teenager that I would become a TV host and shoot travel shows. To reach this goal, I moved to London to study Mass Communications and Cultural Studies, followed by drama school in Paris to improve my oral expression and to make the stage mine. At the age of 25, I started my media career hosting a cultural youth program on a Martinican radio station.. A few months later, I went back to Paris to record multilingual voice-overs for the urban music channel TRACE.TV. This is how my long-term relationship with TV began in 2004.
2004 / 2005 : the beginning
In 2004, I made my first appearance on camera for the French travel channel VOYAGE. The same year, I co-hosted my first live show, the KORA All African Music Awards in South Africa – the most important music prize of the continent watched by millions of viewers all over the world.
2006 / 2007 : traveling
For two years, I travelled through South America and Asia, dedicating myself to discovering new cultures as well as studying body language, Brazilian dance and yoga.
2007 / 2015 : music
Back to France, I joined the French-German cultural channel ARTE. During four years, I co-hosted in German, French and English the live music show “One Short Not” with famous drummer Manu Katché followed by “Arte Lounge”, another multi-lingual live music program. I have also presented numerous music festivals and events across Europe and Central America.
2010 : the dream come true
2010 is the year I got to live my teenage dream : host and direct a series of travel documentaries shot in Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil for the French travel show « Thalassa » on France 3. What an amazing experience !
2013 : back to the roots
In 2013 I started working for the ORF, the Austrian public service broadcaster, as a host for prime time entertainment and cultural shows. Since then, each year I have hosted different parts of the “Life Ball”, Europe’s biggest charity event in the fight against HIV and AIDS, broadcasted on ORF.
2015 : the unforgettable
In May 2015, I had the honor to be chosen to be one of the hosts of the 60th Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, Austria. It was a great pride to be able to contribute to such an exceptional event and an unforgettable experience in front of 200 million viewers all around the World.
Today, I want to share my experience and skills with you.
