What do others say about Barbara?

Barbara is an excellent leader and public speaker. I had the privilege of being under her leadership while she was the IT Chair at ITT Technical Institute. She masterfully led by providing professional mentoring with a personal touch to the largest group of instructors as the IT Chair in a resource and time constrained environment. During speaking engagements, she commanded the audience’s attention and delivered the information in a professional manner while skillfully blending in just the right amount of levity. I am grateful for having the opportunity to learn from such a great leader and speaker.
