Frequently Asked Questions

Captivate

Do I need to bring a laptop to the workshop?

No, all of our work is analog and verbal.

Will I be speaking in front of the group?

Yes! Please bring a five-minute talk (or a five-minute section of a longer talk). You’ll be delivering it at least four times over the course of the day.

What can my talk be about?

Really, anything. We’ve had people give Q4 earnings reports, company overviews, bridesmaid’s speeches, and a talk on “Why everyone should own a dog.” Our suggestion is that you bring something, though, that’s high stakes. Something you want to get better at presenting. Something that can be used to test you, challenge you, and grow you.

What if I’ve got a fear of public speaking?

Don’t worry. Our instructors work hard to make the room feel safe for everyone. Not only that, but you’ll learn throughout the day how to shift your focus outward and connect with your audience instead of your fears.

Do you use video recording in Captivate to show me what I’m doing wrong?

No, we don’t use video recording as a learning tool in Captivate. Watching video of yourself is a very helpful tool when rehearsing your talk (and we encourage it!) but it only serves as a distraction when we have multiple participants and live, one-on-one coaching.

Will I be transformed by the end of the day?

No. But any speaker coaching class that promises you that is lying. By the end of the day, you’ll get a sense of what your presentations strengths are and how to leverage them as well as a few areas where you can—and will—continue to grow. We’ll also give you the tools to continue the improvement you’ll see and feel during the Captivate class.

Will there be breaks?

Sure will. You’ll have chances to check your email and stay in the loop. But, overall, we want you focused and engaged throughout the day so you can become more captivating.

Is this class just a bunch of do’s and don’t’s like, “Don’t say ‘um,’” and “Talk loud so everyone can hear you”?

No. It’s different than that—and better. Sure, we talk about the traits great presenters possess—and the ones they don’t. But, our goal is to get under the surface and try to get to why you may be doing certain things (or not doing other things) so we can produce long-term growth and improvement.

The two coaches were extremely dynamic and empathetic. They accomplished so much in one day. I didn’t expect the individualized attention and level of coaching we received.
