Stories From Where Dr. G Has Been

It is rare and exceptional to have a medical expert on parenting and children’s behavior who is knowledgeable, passionate and also entertaining. Dr G always captivates her audience while providing down to earth real parenting advice. I’ve had the pleasure of attending more than six of Dr. G’s presentations to large and small groups and always remain engaged and learning something new. It is for this very reason we were excited to invite Dr. G to present a webinar to our youth development clients this past March which was enthusiastically received and attended. Dr G “thank you” so very much for sharing your expertise with our child develop professionals who gained so many useful tips for working with children.

We loved having Dr. G speak to our Working Parent’s Network so much that we had her back for a second event. She has such an energetic and natural presence and is a very gifted speaker. We all enjoyed her humor and helpful tips. Dr. G is relevant and relatable and it has been a wonderful benefit having her come talk to our employees.

As a TV host and Mom, I have interviewed many parenting experts. I appreciate straightforward information that I can apply the same day, and that’s what I get from Dr. G. She is the on-call expert who gives bite-sized advice with big results. Her medical training coupled with her sense of humor and four kids of her own help me trust and like her! I love having her on our show, and you’ll love having her on your TV!

We owe you a big sincere THANK YOU for helping to make NAA17 a success. We had a blast in Dallas and received very positive feedback from our 1,500 attendees.

Dr. G was a pleasure to have at our camp. The information and training she provided for our camp staff had direction. She held big group conversations and games, but also met with the staff of the different age groups and gave insight to the age group that they’ll be working with. My staff went into the summer with a confidence that they wouldn’t have had without her.

Elliot Sanders

We had the honor of having Dr. Deb Gilboa at our school a few weeks ago. She was a fantastic speaker, who kept the audience of parents engaged and enlightened. Her parenting wisdom revolves around the three “R”s, and brings common sense solutions to challenges we face as parents. Her style is engaging and she brings levity and humor to the evening. In sharing all she has learned as a physician as well as a mother of four, she reminded us that we must return to basics, and work with our children to help foster their sense of independence and confidence. I received rave reviews from parents after she visited and they felt she left them with golden nuggets of parenting that they have been able to put right into action. Dr. Gilboa is a generous and caring human being, who is passionate about helping parents, as well as raising young adults who will thrive once they enter the world on their own.

Jill Perin

Dwight Englewood School

From the moment I first contacted her Debi was responsive and thorough willing to go the extra mile to ensure the best and most educational experience possible for our teachers and parents. We have since received glowing reviews about her speaking and she left parents empowered and inspired. Dr. G has a unique ability to speak to an entire room of people but also simultaneously connect to you as an individual.

Dr. G’s presentation on raising resilient kids at the Walworth Barbor American International School was a huge success. Dr. G shared stories, research, and information that was interesting, funny, and easy to understand. Raising children is challenging and Dr. G shared helpful guidance in a supportive and engaging manner. She is a wonderful speaker! We loved having her at our school as a part of our parent education lecture series. We look forward to welcoming her again in the future.

Dr. G’s presentations to our staff and our community blew us away! She is a dynamic and engaging speaker and we’re hearing more about her incredible impact every day. The material resonated with our frontline staff, leaders, educators and members (our customers), all of whom want to build more resilience in their teams, their families and themselves. With so much humor, Dr. G offered tips and practical strategies that we could start using that very day. She has an amazing ability to connect with her audience and engaged them throughout the day and night. We would highly recommend bringing Dr. G to speak at your organization.

Dr. G’s professional development webinar was spot on! She set the landscape to help us understand what is happening today regarding resilience, the needs of GenZ and Millennial employees, and how we can hire and retain the talent we require to fulfill our mission. Dr. G gave very specific ideas/tools on what we can do with our staff now, during training and over the summer. My whole team thought it was great and can’t wait to dig into her follow up materials!

We were very grateful to have Dr. G as our resource for our Father Son YPO weekend last Fall. She was very engaging and worked well with both fathers and their sons (ages 7-9). From group discussions on resilience to one on one work with Dads looking to improve their relationship with their sons, she was fantastic. I highly recommend her to any other YPOer and am thrilled that she is coming back as our resource for the Father Son weekend in October 2020.
