Corporate Services, Keynotes & Training

DR. GILDA is the only internationally known relationship expert who speaks at corporations, schools, and associations, to adults, students, and teens. She discusses relationship issues in the workplace that affect the bottom line, personal relationships that affect the health and longevity of commitments, and the most important relationship of all, the one we have with ourselves. DR. GILDA has been a product spokesperson in the media for numerous major corporations and brands, including Hallmark, Harlequin,, Cottonelle, Galderma Pharmaceuticals, Lavalife, and Sprint. 

Her work includes motivational speeches, seminars, consulting, and personal and executive one-on-ones. Her approach is based on the notion that all relationship issues are the result of deficient boundaries. Deficient boundaries reflect a need for greater empowerment. DR. GILDA guides audiences to project a Power Image™, she directs essential boundary design, and she drives successful goal achievement.
