“Your coaching is helping me find my authentic voice, so I can communicate effectively, using language, tone and style of speech that fit my personality. I’ve noticed a direct impact from our training sessions in my on-camera work, helping me develop as a professional. I would highly recommend working with you to anyone who can!” - Katrina Sarson, Oregon Art Beat co-host, OPB
Barbara lost her lease on the SE Hawthorne Avenue location and is still searching for a new home. In the mean time Linda Austin at Performance Works Northwest has made her studio space available to Barbara for her group classes and workshops. Individual meetings with speaking clients will take place in a meeting room at TaborSpace.
The address for PWNW is: 4625 SE 67th Ave., Portland, OR 97206
The address for TaborSpace is: 5441 SE Belmont St., Portland, OR 97215
MY OFFER of a finders fee (to be discussed) or a free month of acting classes ($175.00 value) or speaking coaching ($200/hr) to anyone who can help me find a new studio space still stands.
700 to 800 square feet (with a small office) and I’d like to keep it in the SE of Portland.
I would be using it for acting classes Monday nights (and maybe one other day time class) as well as monthly Speaking Workshops, one-on-one sessions with clients as well as special workshops. I am willing to share with someone who does similar work.
Price range: $900 – $1000 p/month (my half if sharing a space).
Please contact me if you know of something or need further details.

A current executive from a major corporation said, “In one hour I learned more from you than I did with the three day workshop on public speaking they made us attend at work.” - S. Miller, Global Digital Brand Director, Nike Golf
Dill Ward attended the March Great Speakers Workshop and had these wonderful things to say about it:“Wow! You don’t know what you don’t know. Barbara has a lifetime of experience and knowledge on the subject and it was very obvious she is passionate about helping others achieve their goals. Her approach is what you would expect from a coach, challenging you not coddling you. Making you reach inside yourself to see if you really have what it takes to be great. Her content is so dense, in just a few hours with Barbara and you will have a month of practice material and a whole new outlook on how you approach public speaking. I highly recommend anyone looking for a great teacher & coach contact Barbara!“_______________________________________________________________________Actor’s Scene and Monologue Video

"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."
