You had really good input on both the content and presentation. I have a long way to go but you gave me a glimpse of how important improving my delivery can be. I deeply appreciate being taken in on this speaker series program.Managing Director, Venture Fund
Duarte Speaker Coaches have years of experience providing 1:1 coaching to speakers from all over the world. Each coach is trained in Duarte’s methodology, which has 30 years of success among the world’s top brands. Whatever industry you’re in, when you work with a Duarte Speaker Coach, you know you are getting an expert who is invested in you becoming a great communicator.
If you’ve ever had a coach, you know that the coaching relationship is personal. After your first coaching session, if you find that the coach isn’t the right fit, we will try again with a new coach who is a better fit for you.
Your coach will tailor each 50-minute virtual coaching session to your specific goals and needs. Before your first coaching session, it’s a good idea to review the video modules so you and your coach can be as efficient as possible, but it’s not mandatory. Once you schedule your first session, you’ll receive a calendar invite to the Zoom video conference room where your virtual coaching session will take place.
We’ve condensed key insights from our full-day Captivate and Resonate workshops and put them into short and engaging video modules for you. If you’ve never been to a Duarte workshop, these modules will give you a strong introduction to our content and delivery methodologies. If you have attended one (or multiple) of our workshops, these videos are a great refresher.
A self-assessment of your current delivery traits and skills gives you a baseline to bring to your first coaching session. We will provide you with a digital copy of the self-assessment questionnaire.
Following your final coaching session, your coach will email an improvement plan with recommended next steps for continuing your growth as a speaker. The plan will include specific areas for your development, as well as suggestions for how to leverage your speaking strengths.
As part of the Refine and Transform packages, your coach will create a personalized coaching agenda that outlines your development path. This agenda will include the phased approach that you and your coach will work through during (and in between) your coaching sessions. In addition to your objectives and milestones, this agenda may include such items as recommended exercises to try on your own, reviews of your prior speaking engagements, links to examples of other speakers, etc.
For packages longer than one month, you’ll receive a 3-month subscription to the Orai Public Speaking App, which comes loaded with exclusive Duarte videos and exercises. The Orai App uses a sophisticated AI engine to track your progress along several key indicators, giving you instant feedback. You can review your data with your coach and continue your learning journey outside of your coaching sessions.
We’ve included downloadable resources as part of each package. You can use these guides and tools on your own or during sessions with your coach.
Whether you’re looking for robust reads, quick tips, or tools, we’ve got resources that can help. Check out our webcasts, ebooks, and more here.
I can honestly say this was one of the best learning experiences I've had in a long time and I have a lot more confidence about speaking thanks to you.Vice President, Fortune 500 Technology Company
You are helping me create something so important. Thank you. With so much gratitude. It brings tears. Looking forward to our next one.Founder, Interior Design Firm
You were so helpful and patient and generous. No way I would have given even a decent talk without you. There were so many times you set me straight I can’t even remember. I still can’t believe the standing ovation at the end.Biologist and Distinguished Professor
