“Verbal Youth”, the future of learning starts now.

Public speaking is no longer a nice-to-have for children. It’s a compulsory skill and an essential part of the future of learning.

Since the age of 20, Pedro Castilho helps people tell their stories, deliver persuasive presentations and communicate their message clearly. Verbalius, the company he founded in 2013, is dedicated to executive coaching in public speaking, debating and public relations skills.

 

On July 15th 2019 Pedro launches his brand-new project: “Verbal Youth”.

WHAT is “Verbal Youth” ?

“Verbal Youth” is a 5-half days program of workshops which help children aged 8 to 18 to master stage fright and become self-confident in front of an audience. It equips them with the basic tools they need to become a champion at public speaking while having fun with other training mates. They learn what is storytelling, how to make their speeches visual, how to use their voice, how to practice body language and how to catch the audience’s attention. There are lots of practical exercises including speaking in front of a camera.

WHY launching “Verbal Youth” ?

I believe everybody can speak in public. I’m convinced the earlier you start the easier it gets. And I want to help children in Luxembourg to rock the stage. That’s “Verbal Youth”! Public speaking is no longer a nice to have. It’s a compulsory skill and an essential part of the future of learning. In some educational systems public speaking is taught from kindergarten. How do you want our children to compete in the future with people who started long before them training their communication skills? We need to support our youth, now.

WHAT is included in the “Verbal Youth” workshops ?

Our workshops Include:

# the training,
# the deliverables,
# a certificate of attendance,

# a memory video
# and a lot of healthy drinks and snacks.

HOW will “Verbal Youth” improve your child's presentation skills ?

At the end of this 5 half day training your child will be able to :

# address an audience based on story telling 

# use their voice so their audience is able to listen

# use simple illustration methods

# use gestures and emotions to underline their words

# to reduce his/her anxiety and build self-confidence
