Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Feb 27, 2019 - Silicon Valley-based Duarte, Inc. is officially launching speaker coaching services to help its clients speak with confidence, dynamism, and empathy. Over the past 30 years, Duarte has built a reputation for creating impactful presentation design and motivational content in addition to offering a variety of corporate training workshops. Now—through a team of experienced executive speaker coaches and in partnership with an AI-powered smartphone app, Orai—they’re officially adding speaker coaching services to help clients bring their content and visuals to life.
With the addition of speaker coaching, Duarte becomes the only agency offering a complete ecosystem of services—communications strategy, content development, presentation design, and delivery coaching—at the high caliber demanded by audiences today.
Duarte will be offering three unique speaker coaching journeys to partner with clients, regardless of their experience level, title, or industry.
The first, Alumni Office Hours, will be offered virtually one-on-one to workshop participants after they attend Captivate. Clients can take what they learned in the workshop and, with their coach, focus on individual goals.
For senior executives, Duarte is offering bespoke and custom-designed Executive Speaker Coaching services. Whether practicing for a specific high-stakes event or seeking overall professional development at the C-suite level, Duarte will pair its most Senior clients with an experienced Executive Coach who will assess and guide based on individual needs.
A third offering (coming this Spring), will be geared towards business professionals who want a more long-term communication improvement journey. Using a mix of eLearning, smartphone app support, and one-on-one virtual coaching, these clients will see significant progress over time.
Duarte differentiates itself from other speaker coaching companies in several ways. Their coaches drive clients toward an audience-focused, empathetic delivery via an inside-out approach. Coaching sessions cover both outer behaviors and underlying causes, helping each client become their own unique brand of powerful presenter.
Additionally, through a partnership with Orai, clients can continue to receive Duarte lessons, practice outside the coaching session and get AI-driven feedback on their delivery skills right from their smartphones. This new app experience will encourage clients to practice, provide them with valuable data, and allow them to share their results with a speaker coach, adding new depth to each coaching session.
“Our speaker coaches bring a unique perspective to their work,” said Executive Speaker Coach Doug Neff. “In addition to their experience serving some of the world’s largest companies and most inspiring leaders, our coaches are also integral members of our strategy and content team. They craft compelling presentations and speeches for A-list clients and deliver our Captivate workshops to learners all over the world, practicing what they preach every day. They have real-world experience in all types of business communications, from mainstage presentations to virtual meetings, staff meetings, and sales calls.”
Duarte, Inc. was founded by Nancy and Mark Duarte in 1988. As a world-class communication agency and training company based in Silicon Valley, Duarte’s massive client list includes 25 of the world’s top 35 brands, TED Speakers, NGOs, and thought leaders.
