Bucaro, a communications expert and owner of Meg Bucaro Communications, will give her presentation “Boss Up! Powerful Communication Behaviors Behind Influence.” 

“Given our lecture series focus this year on diversity, equity and inclusion, and having heard Meg speak at the Loras Women’s Leadership Alliance a few years ago, I knew she would be a perfect speaker for this series,” Jim Padilla, dean of the Francis J. Noonan School of Business, said. “Our attendees will be treated to a phenomenal speaker and Duhawk alumna.”

After graduating from Loras, she earned her master’s degree in communication studies from Northern Illinois University. She has taught communication studies in higher education for 19 years and has served clients through her speaking engagements and training programs for the past 11 years.

“It is important to be aware of how our communication behaviors shape our future,” Bucaro said. “We are often judged by how we show up in our personal and professional lives.  These judgments can dictate much of our future success.”

The Francis J. Noonan School of Business invites qualified individuals to Loras College’s campus to speak on topics relevant to today’s business world. Admission is free and open to the public.
