Master the art of storytelling

We transform executives into dynamic communicators and storytellers. Our unique approach is rooted in a blend of acting technique and improv--creating a speech that is alive with color, whether in person or on-camera.

Stand out from the crowd

Every speaking engagement and video appearance is an opportunity to showcase your expertise and connect with your audience in an authentic way. But when you feel awkward and self-conscious about being on camera, your message will get lost, you can come off as unapproachable or uninteresting, and your brand’s reputation can be affected.A polished appearance is essential, but more important is the way you engage your audience and elicit their trust. It's cliche for a reason: people buy from those they know, like and trust! By partnering with Connect & Captivate, you and your team will learn how to craft a powerful message and deliver it with confidence and the uniqueness that only YOU possess. My team and I are all professionally trained actors, improvisers and corporate leaders, and we harness our unstoppable passion for our craft to benefit your business.
