Gilda gave her first major speech as Marist valedictorian in 1993, where she shared the stage with commencement speaker James Earl Jones, on Leonidoff Field, in the days before the Campus Green was built.
She is now a professional speaker, trainer and coach who helps people improve their presentation and communication skills so they can be more successful. She achieves these results by combining her business background with her improv comedy performance experience and a conviction that with the right training and practice, anyone can become a more effective communicator. She has worked with executives throughout North America and in South America, Europe, China and India.
You are cordially invited to participate in an interactive workshop featuring Marist alumna and communication skills expert and professional speaker Gilda Bonanno '93.
