Gilda Bonanno
National Speakers Association - CT Chapter (NSA-CT) Meeting
Monday, June 18, 2012, 6-9 pm

Don't wait for a life-changing crisis to create the life and career that fulfills you most. In this motivating session, illustrated by Gilda's experience of being near the path of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, you'll gain a vivid understanding of the importance of priorities in life and work.

Gilda recounts how  this  dramatic  event influenced her decision to change careers and follow her dream of starting her own speaking, training and coaching business.  

*Being challenged to consider how you choose to spend time
*Understanding how to break out of your comfort zone
*Avoiding career burnout by recommitting to launching or growing your speaking career

After this talk, you won't want to spend another thousand of your estimated 28,000 lifespan days complaining and making others around you miserable -- and you'll be on your way to making important changes happen so you develop your business and live a more inspired life.
