Martina Gleissenebner-Teskey studied ecology, psychology and communication sciences and is a systemic coach. During her studies she was internationally active as a model and as a representative of Austrian environmental NGOs. In 1996 she launched the „Charisma concept“ for the development of personal talents and thus started an international career as a trainer, coach and lecturer. The book on the concept was published in 2017 and was reprinted in an expanded version in 2023. Gleissenebner-Teskey lived in Milan and Monte Carlo, where her daughter Lou-Anne was born. On her 50th birthday, she applied independently of Lou-Anne to Germany’s Next Tomodel and was the first best ager to win third place. Since then she has been modeling again and not only is she living her dream, but she also wants to inspire as many people as possible to bring their own gifts and talents into the world to live a life they succeed.
