“One of the most dynamic speakers we’ve had in our ten year history.”
Joe Lyons, past-President, North West Coaches Association
The job of a speaker is to inspire, entertain, and above all, lead us to new perspectives.
– It is the speakers job to open up and shake out our creativity.
– It is the speakers job to remind us of inner truths we have forgotten.
– It is the speakers job to help us find the right questions we need to ask ourselves.
Barbara Kite pulls back the curtain and let’s you in on the acting secrets great performers know and use.
Most people are stuck in a cycle of embracing ingrained and self-destructive beliefs that keep them guarded and afraid of being authentic. Through select acting techniques, Barbara Kite helps you find new and creative ways of addressing these self-limiting beliefs and replacing them with new truths.
What do acting skills have to do with being an effective orator? EVERYTHING. After acting, coaching, and directing for 30+ years Barbara has zeroed in on what actors have that makes them so moving, so authentic, and so mesmerizing.
One of those skills involves your own basic humanity and what works about you. Actors learn how to embrace all parts of themselves, even those areas we all want to hide. In that acceptance and awareness they become more profound and understanding human being, allowing them to deepen connections with everyone in their lives.
“YOU CANNOT BUILD ON FALSE WEAKNESSES. Stop feeding them. Challenge them. You can only build on that which is amazing about you. Learn how to acknowledge these truths.”

"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."
