Speaking Designed to Educate and Inspire
Barbara weaves stories and humor into her keynotes and workshops, bringing the concepts to life in an engaging way.
Her passion for this topic developed from living in foreign countries for 20 years and being a non-native speaker of a language she had to use for business. She had the privilege of teaching and coaching hundreds of global managers from over 35 countries on how to deliver professional presentations in English. As a result of all that listening, she developed the ability to hear what is not clear and what's not being said.
Whether it's incorrect grammar, inaccurate vocabulary, or scrambled message structure, she has a system that helps any level of speaker create a clear, powerful message that gets results.

Being able to deliver a clear, impactful, actionable pitch is an essential business communication tool that should be part of every manager’s toolkit, but it is not a skill that is often taught.
