Testimonials & References

Barbara was a speaker several times in 2021 for our Leading Ladies program at Atos. She was professional, prepared, relaxed and is clearly a communication expert. Over 600 people signed up virtually each time for her presentation and she did not disappoint. Her down-to-earth and warm personality combined with her wide range of knowledge and practical tips made her a favorite of our community. We look forward to welcoming her again for a 2022 session in our continuing leadership development series.  I would highly recommend Barbara for any event or activity where a charismatic and inspiring communication and presentation expert is required.

Barbara has guided different groups of colleagues of mine in her workshops. I had the privilege to attend these. Her approach really helped them to improve the content of their stories and enabled them to presented it in a enthusiastic manner. Even though we had to organise the workshops online because of Covid restrictions, Barbara succeeded to transfer her approach successfully. My colleagues, among which were experienced speakers, without exception all indicated that they benefited greatly from her workshops. 

-- David Smit, Quint Technologies  

Barbara's coaching is thorough, inspiring and practical. Her approach is dynamic and interesting. In her sessions for WICT Europe, Barbara coached a wide range of people at different stages of their careers. She managed to balance these differences and provide sessions that were useful for every person, with key takeaways that everyone could build into their career development. The sessions were extremely engaging. I was delighted with Barbara's coaching and I would highly recommend her services. 

-- Hannah Beresford, Liberty Global   

Barbara provided me and my team with a virtual training session on how to introduce yourself and finding your hero story! It was a very insightful and fun session highlighting the art of introducing yourself, being aware of how to position yourself & your team and to know what value you bring to the table. What I really enjoyed was the balance between learning some theory, practicing and reflecting. Would definitely recommend this session!
