Public speaking is not top of my list of favorite things to do, but it is a huge part of my job! Barrie equipped me with the confidence and tools I need to prepare and professionally deliver anything from one-minute opening remarks to hour-long presentations. I’m very thankful for the opportunity to learn from Barrie, and highly recommend others do the same!

Barrie’s hands-on workshop provided tools to craft my message the right way and provided physical & mindset practices to prepare how to show up with confidence. I was anxious to enroll in her course, but quickly found a safe place surrounded with positivity and encouragement. I highly recommend Barrie’s workshop!

Now is the time to advance your goals
and leave your fear behind.

Do you feel butterflies in your stomach when you think of speaking to a group of people?

You are not alone. Most of Barrie’s clients feel fear and trepidation. Some are afraid of making a mistake, sounding awkward or even worse, forgetting everything they had planned to say. 

These clients allowed their fear to keep them from promoting their business, stepping up for greater leadership opportunities or accessing their voice for change in the world. 

Then the clients knew, and maybe you do, too: speaker training was the next right step. 

Expert speaking and presentation coach Barrie Barton has helped hundreds of individuals like you, guiding them step by step toward becoming a confident and skillful speaker. 

In the Speaker’s Lab, Barrie will maximize your 90 minute session each week with your group by keeping it active, fun, insightful and helpful with actions that form positive communication habits and shift fear to excitement and readiness.


Does the idea of writing or presenting a speech overwhelm you?

The cornerstone of crafting an effective speech follows specific approaches and asking key questions. You’ll be guided by an expert to generate well-organized content, receive weekly coaching on your delivery, and be fully prepared to present your message to an audience.

As a result of the Speaker Lab, you’ll have a strategy map of how to write, rehearse and deliver your next presentation.

With Barrie’s guidance, you’ll discover your true confidence, amplify your personal presence and deliver a powerful message.

The Learning Lab can help you overcome communication hurdles (for the rest of your life!) in as little as 6 weeks–all while surrounded by an insightful professional and your peers in an intimate group setting.

The Learning Lab has limited spaces and has previously sold out. Reserve your spot.

      I feel a confidence I haven’t felt before when speaking with people and in listening too. I am more present within myself and more available to others.
