Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County

"As a seasoned executive, I have given many presentations but I knew I needed help in refining my message to make it more strategic and delivering it with confidence. Gilda walked me through a clear, easy-to-follow process for creating and practicing a presentation.

After working with Gilda, I know how to design and confidently deliver a presentation that connects with the audience and communicates my message, whether I am speaking at award presentations, soliciting contributions from corporate donors or providing education to my team. I highly recommend her."

Joe Ort

“Gilda was a great resource in developing my presentation skills. She simplifies things so that they can easily be remembered and implemented. Not only that, she is an absolute pleasure to work with. If you are looking for an organized, honest coach, look no further. You will see results!”

Samantha Van Schoick

Board of Directors

Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS)

"Thank you Gilda for your expert coaching of our presenters who delivered their SMPS CT MAX Talks at our TED-style program focused on the Architecture/Engineering/Construction industry. Your presentation skills coaching sessions helped all our presenters develop a strategic message, organize their content and be ready to deliver their talks on a big stage, in front of a large audience and on camera. After working with you, they did an amazing job and were more confident, concise, focused and engaging!"

Brent Robertson



"I am a very experienced speaker and had the pleasure of working with Gilda to prepare for a very important speaking opportunity. She took the time to really dive into the message I was trying to convey, the way I wanted to present my message, my style, and most importantly, my ambitions for this particular event. She was then able to provide very precise and very meaningful feedback which inspired me to push myself into new territory. I am now more excited than ever about this event. She is absolutely terrific and a true professional."

Evelyn Isaia

Entrepreneur & Board Member

CT Institute for Refugees & Immigrants

"I could not be more pleased with the coaching experience I had with Gilda. Although comfortable with public speaking, I had a an important 3 min shot at impressing a big audience with a presentation about my company and the mission. Gilda drilled down to understand how the company works and particularly, what actually makes it so attractive and different from the competition. She helped me to better articulate what we do and how we do it. Her choice of vocabulary and the order in which I presented each aspect of the company was refreshing and nuanced. I was particularly grateful for her helping me with the final “call to action. Without any hesitation, I highly recommend her services. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the ease of doing business with her, the open lines of communication and her sassy style. An A+"
