- Are you ready to give a speech or present to your team or organization?
- Is it time to share your idea, philosophy or product with the world?
How To Make A Speech is the perfect place to start.
Speakers have the power to inspire and influence, but many struggle with how to start, what to say and how to say it with maximum impact.
In her step by step strategic and creative training, Barrie Barton, expert speaking coach, guides leaders and developing or seasoned speakers from “throw it together” to “stand and deliver” speeches. The result: a speech that captures your most compelling and convincing message.
“Barrie helped me prepare for my TEDx talk. I have no idea how I would’ve done it without her even though I have speaking experience. She helped clarify my ideas and organization, create better transitions, and she taught me how to remember my talk and be more confident on stage. If you want to be a better speaker, create better content, play a bigger game and have fun while doing it, hire Barrie.”

“You really helped get me "to the points" of my talk -- getting me arrow-focused. I tend to get overwhelmed/immersed in details/research and have trouble with outlining it and boiling it down.”
Speaker’s Learning Lab client 2018
“The speech was a massive hit. Over 1,300 people and probably 200 people came up to me during the conference and told me how much they enjoyed it. Also, probably getting a gig in Hawaii because of it. Couldn't have done it without you! Thanks so much!”

“Barrie helped me turn my speech from boring to brilliant! She has a wonderful way of capturing my essence and plugging it into my flat, science-based speech. Barrie taught me how to shine brightly when presenting my research. I am truly grateful for all that I learned in her Speaker’s Lab course!”
