Here is what Cathy Nehl, another workshop participant said:
“As Henry Emerson Fosdick once said… ‘Have the daring to accept yourself as a bundle of possibilities and undertake the game of making the most of your best.‘ That is the feeling of my experience at the Great Speakers Workshop. Fun and rewarding. Thank you Barbara…loved the course.” - Cathy Nehl, Nehl & Assoc., LLC

"Barbara's workshop helped me focus my presentation and pace myself very effectively. Her attitude about public speaking as a natural extension of our own personality and genuineness is refreshing and enjoyable! With her encouragement, I was able to address a large professional group, and hold the audience's attention for a full-day training, feeling confident and relaxed. I heartily recommend work with Barbara for anyone who would like better skills and more fun out of speaking to groups."
Kate McNulty, LCSW
"Barbara delivered an amazing, inspirational address at a party that I hosted for 72 women where she shared with us her journey in living an authentic life. She kept it so real and said thoughts we all have but do not necessarily have the guts to say. It still stands out in my mind how many women stood up and shared themselves at this event. She so richly deserved the standing ovation that she received."
