Testimonials About the Program

Slide “Barrie helped me prepare for my TED talk. I have no idea how I would’ve done it without her even though I have public speaking experience. She helped clarify my ideas and organization, create better transitions, and had all kinds of tricks including 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.”

TEDx Asheville
Slide “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
Slide “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!”

Emotional Intelligence Coach Individual Coaching
Slide “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!”
