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!”
