ABOUT CAPTIVATING KIDS & TEENS

 

CAPTIVATING SPEAKER'S team of award-winning public speakers, professional educators, and communication specialists, pooled their extensive experience and resources to develop the Captivating Kids & Teens program, geared towards kids aged from 6 to 18. The result is a new and innovative program, the only one of its kind in the world. Captivating offers an enrichment program in schools and as an elective and subject in select private schools. We also teach classes at GC Studios in Woodland Hills, California.

 

Captivating Kids has made such a big difference in the lives of kids in such a short time, we are planning to expand our program throughout North America.

 

We provide our young students the very best communication and leadership training, with a focus on much-needed oral communication skills and written communication that is geared towards oral presentation. Writing for speaking requires a different approach and methodology than writing for reading.

 

Experienced professionals teach kids these vital skills giving them such a great advantage, now, in their academic lives
and later in their careers. There is simply no better way to ensure your child is successful in later life.

Your passion for what you do is evident in every word you say and move you make in front of the children and us, parents.  I appreciate that you are challenging the status quo and guiding our children down new directions and creativity! For me, this was the best extra curricular activity, or better yet, the BEST INVESTMENT I have been offered at our school.  THANK YOU!!

"Today I witnessed my son Robert (5th grade) present his final "speech" in the captivating kids after-school class.  I cannot tell you how impressed I was with his presentation. The skills and tips they learned in this class are life changing. From encouraging the kids to providing constructive criticism to improve their basic speaking abilities is true values they can carry with them a lifetime.

This class exceeded all of my expectations. He even said this was the "best" class !  I was also very pleased to hear our teachers will be taking this class as well. Every single teacher we have can benefit greatly from this class."

Captivating Kids program did miracles for my daughter, Kayla. 5 stars would not merely be enough to fully express my feelings about Chanti Niven and her brilliant method. After observing my kid's complete transformation on so many levels, I enrolled myself into Captivating Speakers adult courses. Chanti and her team will turn your child into a confident, eloquent communicator, and, most importantly, confident human being. You owe it to your child.

The Most Important Thing You Can Teach Kids by Chanti Niven

When your children are born they are fully reliant upon you for everything but as they mature, they begin to learn self-reliance. Your job as a parent is to learn to let go and to help your child to develop the skills he or she will need to flourish in later life. As far as I'm concerned, the most important skill you can teach your children is how to communicate clearly and effectively. This is how your children will interact with the world around them and will largely determine their success in life. Fortune 100 companies list 'oral and written communication' on top of the list of most desirable traits in prospective executives. This is the reason that we focus on developing these skills. It makes perfect sense for you to enrol your child in our training. Read what other parents are saying about Captivating Kids:
