Meet Bonita the Wedding Academy Sales Mentor

written by


One of the things the Wedding Academy is known for is their amazing mentor team. And today’s mentor, Bonita, is no exception.

Bonita has been with the Wedding Academy now for approximately 7 years and we met in Dubai as part of our expansion into the Middle East region.

I was immediately drawn in by her vibrant personality, passion for the wedding industry and her unbelievable sales acumen.

Bonita loves to travel and those experiences have definitely made her who she is with so much goodness and knowledge to share.

But I’ll let her tell you her story in the video below.

Meet Wedding Academy Mentor Bonita

As part of the Wedding Academy team Bonita specialises in mentoring our students in the art of sales.

Most of don’t like selling. Period.

However, it gets worse when you have to actually sell yourself rather than a product. Bonita’s strategies and tips have helped so many Wedding Academy students overcome that fear of selling.

They feel confident in conducting consultations and getting themselves out there in front of couples.

As well as being the Wedding Academy sales guru Bonita also looks after our GCC and African region and would love to chat with any of you looking to make the leap into the wedding industry.
