Who was Lilyan Wilder?

Lilyan Wilder was America’s foremost communications, speech and media consultant and author of books on public speaking. Her clients included well-known broadcast, media, political, and business leaders in the US and Israel. She worked as a communication consultant, training broadcast correspondents at ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN. Her guidance and counsel was sought by some at the beginning of their careers, like a young Oprah Winfrey and the late Jessica Savitch. Her help was also sought by those at the height of their success, such as the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu and former President George H. Bush. Lilyan’s dream was to empower spokespeople for Israel with the enhanced communications skills necessary to effectively represent Israel on social media, college campus, and in public debates.
