LEESBURG, Va., April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Fear of speaking in front of people strikes terror in the hearts of many adults. Others suffer varying degrees of speaking fear that hold them back in college, career, and social life. Imagine if those adults had learned to speak joyfully, with confidence and authority, at an early age—before those fears could develop.
Gabberz, Inc. [www.gabberz.com] aims to do just that with the release of “Gabberz Public Speaking for Kids, Confidence for Life!”™ Their Mission Statement declares, “Our goal is to help children from all walks of life develop a powerful voice to influence their future and their world. Our fun, self-paced coaching program is designed to build confidence and leadership skills in children from all socioeconomic backgrounds, enabling a new generation of doers… of builders… of leaders who will mold a bright, positive, and productive future.”
Training is provided through an at-home activity-based guidebook that leads 8 to 18 year olds through the building blocks needed to help them gain the confidence they need to express themselves in any situation. Starting with a simple speech provided by Gabberz, the program builds foundational skills through fun, exciting, and surprising exercises that escalate as the student gains experience, self-confidence, and speaking skills.
David Nemzoff, President of Gabberz, Inc. explains, “Gabberz was born out of my desire to help my own kids become joyful, confident speakers, before any of these fears could develop. Nobody knows the terrible frustration of this fear better than someone who experienced it for many years… as I did. My fears developed in early childhood and persisted well into adulthood, costing me many potential opportunities… if only I would speak up. I didn’t, and those opportunities were forever lost. I don’t want my kids, or anyone else’s, to experience that frustration. I want better for all of them.”
Over the past 20 years, Mr. Nemzoff has coached relationship-based speaking and oral presentations to managers, supervisors, and executives, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars in new business wins for their companies. His relationship-based coaching style is designed to ensure speakers are connecting with their audience, not just reading them a speech. Now he’s bringing this coaching to a new generation.
The company’s commitment to helping kids is clear. Gabberz, Inc. will be setting aside a portion of sales to provide some programs at no cost to disadvantaged youth from families who could not otherwise afford it. When the program is funded, they will begin taking nominations for kids who would benefit most from the program and providing it to select families for free.
Gabberz is kid-friendly and promotes positive family values. Learn more about “Gabberz Public Speaking for Kids” at www.Gabberz.com.
