I met Barbara Kite many years ago when I was volunteering for a play that she was directing.
I had no idea what was not “connecting” but I knew that Barbara could get right down to it.
Literally within 5 minutes of hearing me practice my presentation, Barbara helped me to let go of the “canned words”…what I “should” be saying and what my mind was judging.
The long term results play out in how I speak, not just in front of an audience, but everyday.
Yes, when I stood up to present the first time I sought Barbara’s help, I unraveled a truth that helped others to see themselves in my message.
The thought is to have Barbara Kite on my radio show to talk about “being present” which will connect with more than three people.

"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."

"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."
