The Fraser Valley’s own Maria Gallo has been honoured in the 6th Annual International Book Awards

The Fraser Valley’s own Maria Gallo has been honoured in the 6th Annual  International Book Awards. Her first book, Stop Lecturing Start Communicating: the public-speaking survival guide for business, was an award-winning finalist in the Business: communications/public relations category.

Announced in Los Angeles on May 21, this year’s contest yielded  over 1,200 entries from authors and publishers around the world. Excerpt from their official press release as follows:

This is Gallo’s first published book, which she compiled from training she developed and shared in presentations across Canada, through her company Maria Gallo Presentations. Years before starting her corporate training business, Gallo worked as a professional actress in the B.C. film industry for over a decade. She never expected that her first award from Los Angeles would be as an author.
