Steve Jobs had Seven Rules to Success. Number Six on his list was Master The Message. Jobs was the world’s greatest corporate storyteller. Instead of simply delivering a presentation like most people do, he informed, he educated, he inspired and he entertained, all in one presentation.
Every audience MUST walk away with four things –
1) Tools for change and a game plan they’ve been waiting for
2) Confidence in their ability to work the plan and confidence in you
3) An unforgettable story anchored to your message/service/product
4) A memorable experience
You need to create magic while being authentic, transparent, caring, and passionate.

“Your workshop has given me a new awareness of the quality of a presentation. … a presentation is not about you but about giving the information that you have and visualizing the information that is delivered. It was deeper than that and it is in fact hard to put words on it. You also made me see a blind spot which is how serious I get when I have to talk about something I care.” -Marie-Pierre (Research Scientist), OHSU
“Barbara helped me break through the ruts, the old habits, the familiar ways. Barbara reminds us that the audience is there, willing to be drawn in, but what Barbara teaches are the skills and techniques to bring that audience closer to us in an authentic and natural way.” ~ Ed Jahn, Producter, Oregon Field Guide, OPB

"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."
