SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Duarte, Inc., experts in persuasive communications, today announced a new training workshop helping executives, thought leaders, and other presenters transform how they deliver presentations or speak to groups of any size. Taught by speaker coaches Doug Neff and Jeff Davenport, and taken from their years of experience working with Duarte clients, the day-long workshop, called Captivate, will help participants deliver speeches and presentations that move audiences.
"We wanted to share the insights we've gathered over nearly three decades of crafting high-stakes presentations to help leaders become even more powerful communicators," said Nancy Duarte, CEO and Principal of Duarte, Inc. "In our Captivate workshops, anyone can learn how to express their ideas in a more effective way."
In Captivate, attendees learn to identify the traits that all powerful communicators share: comfort, dynamism, and empathy. Through lectures, self-assessments, experiential exercises, and live coaching in a small-group setting, participants learn their individual strengths and weaknesses as communicators while also getting the tools they need to continue growing long after the training concludes. Most importantly, Captivate prioritizes long-term transformation over short-term improvements, helping participants work with the underlying causes of distracting habits.
"The two coaches were extremely dynamic and empathetic. They accomplished so much in one day," said Captivate attendee Tienni Su, Group Lead at America Honda Finance. "I didn't expect the individualized attention and level of coaching we received."
Registration is open for several Captivate workshops beginning June 23, 2016. Interested parties can sign up at http://www.duarte.com/academy/captivate. To learn more about Captivate workshops or Duarte's creative services, call 650-964-6745 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
