Gloria has touched many lives in the past twenty years. In a lot of ways. She founded Global Protocol and through her coaching and presentations, thousands have unearthed the secret to projecting charisma, presence, power and poise in their business and personal lives. Her own personal traumas in life have made her a stronger person and an inspiration to many. She has created an arsenal of programs and speeches that have and will continue to motivate people (a group of ten or an audience of 2,000) to see life’s obstacles as an opportunity to grow and emerge stronger, smarter and more determined than ever to live life to the fullest.

How?
By helping her clients build self-confidence. By engaging participants and exciting them. By using humor and group involvement to ensure the success of her programs. Since the early 1990’s, Gloria has trained extensively in the Protocol, Image, Ethics, Etiquette and Cultural Diversity fields and has adapted her programs to each new wave of technical and social change. What does this mean to you? You can be sure Gloria’s speeches and programs are not only entertaining, they are relevant and topical. She has the gift of speaking to many and yet making each person feel as though they are the only one sitting in the audience.

And whether you need her to speak, train or write for you, or if you are seeking someone credible and interesting to provide an interview on television or in a publication, she will leave a motivating impression.

    Have you ever wished you could take back a mistake you made and start over?

    Do you realize that how things end make a greater impression on people than how they begin?

    The good news is that you can save an awkward moment with a powerful rebound that sets a lasting impression. But you must first understand what happened so you can put a new strategy in place.

    This begins by gaining specific communication attributes that deliver better results than you ever expected.

    Using these attributes will:

    • improve the social skills of your management team so everyone can enjoy a greater spirit of cooperation,
    • help you know the best approach to use with a diversified customer base,
    • enhance the personal magnetism of your leaders to ensure that they attract loyal team members and customers,
    • model the social skills leaders need for a wide range of applications.

    And they can be learned!

    Through our customized seminars and workshops, you can experience for yourself the effectiveness of these attributes.
