Anna Maria Tremonti to be keynote speaker for YWCA Muskoka’s SHE TALKS Fundraiser on April 5, 2023 One of Canada’s most celebrated journalists and radio personalities, Anna Maria Tremonti, will speak at the Algonquin Theatre in Huntsville as YWCA Muskoka’s keynote speaker for the She Talks Muskoka fundraising event.
Two-time Gemini Award winner, Tremonti will speak about Change and Resilience, drawing from her own life experiences. For 17 years, Anna Maria Tremonti hosted CBC Radio One’s The Current, where her mix of hard-edged journalism and deep empathy helped build the show into Canada’s most listened-to radio program. She is also the host of Welcome to Paradise in which Tremonti opens up about her personal experience with domestic violence.
Also speaking that evening is Kelly Jones, a YWCA coordinator of Circles Muskoka and workshop facilitator who will share her unique perspective on the journey many women face to build an independent life for themselves, free from abuse and fear.
